Wycombe Watch Rivals Falter

Wycombe Watch Rivals Falter

Although Dagenham's frozen pitch meant Wycombe Wanderers were without a game this weekend, three of their fellow promotion contenders were in action, with 1 winning, 1 drawing and 1 losing.


Brentford started the day in 2nd place, 8 points behind Wycombe but with 2 games in hand.

The Bees were at Lincoln today and went behind to a Danny N'Guessan goal after only 6 minutes. By half-time it was a different story as first Marcus Bean after 12 minutes and then Dean Bowdich 11 minutes later, scored to give Brentford the lead. Things looked even more promising for the away side when Lincoln's Paul Green was sent off after 37 minutes. Charlie MacDonald missed a sitter in the second half which would have surely put the game out of Lincoln's reach and he lived to regret it as the ten-man Imps staged a superb comeback. Anthony Elding's 67th minute equaliser was no more than Lincoln deserved after they outplayed Brentford for most of the second half. Only some great goalkeeping by Brentford's Ben Hamer stopped Lincoln from taking all 3 points. The Imps had more of the possession (52%) and 7 shots on target to Brentford's 4.

Brentford remain in 2nd place and are now 7 points behind Wycombe but with only 1 game in hand.



Bury started the day in 8th place, 13 points behind Wycombe both sides having played 24 games.

Bury were at home to Barnet today and won 1-0 thanks to a Mike Jones goal after 37 minutes. The Shakers dominated the game with 55% of the possession and had 10 shots on target to Barnet's 3.

Bury climb to 4th in the table, 10 points behind Wycombe but having now played a game more.



Exeter started the day in 9th place, 13 points behind Wycombe but with 2 games in hand.

Exeter were away at Notts County and took the lead after 26 minutes when Marcus Stewart converted a penalty after Adam Stansfield was tripped in the box. The home side fought back to equalise through former Chairboy Delroy Facey in the 32nd minute, before Gavin Strachan scored what proved to be the winner for Notts County after 39 minutes. The Magpies had 51% of the possession and 8 shots on target to Exeter's 3.

Exeter remain in 9th place, 13 points behind Wycombe but now with only 1 game in hand.



All in all, a good set of results for Wycombe Wanderers on a day when they could do nothing but watch.
