Following yesterday's 1-0 win over Brentford, here are some views on the game from Bees' manager Andy Scott and a few of their fans.
Scott told his club's official website that he felt Wycombe coped better with the poor weather conditions.
"The first half hour was good, we started well, but the weather conditions got a bit worse in the last 15 minutes and we struggled to get out of our half," said Scott.
"We saw it through to half time and we made it clear to the players that with the conditions the way they were, it would be hard for Wycombe to get out of their half, but Wycombe played the conditions better and we struggled to come to terms with it."
The Brentford boss had no complaints about either of the penalty decisions:
"I'm not surprised they were given," he said. "The second one definitely was and it was a sending off."
Despite ruing the number of times his side gave the ball away, Scott finished by saying: "We never gave up. I don't think you can ever accuse them of laying down and dying but our quality wasn't good enough - we never tested their keeper."
The Brentford fans were generally unimpressed with both their team's performance and the referee.
The following extracts are taken from the excellent Griffin Park Grapevine
'Dreadful match and we got what we deserved. Would be easy to blame a poor ref but it was our own doing.'
'Wycombe were dreadful and we made them look good.'
'We never tested their keeper all night and Wycombe didn't really break a sweat as we gifted them most of the play.'
'Inept, effortless, pathetic, disgraceful and disgusting. That has got to rank as one of the worst performances I have witnessed since my first game in 1979.'
'Wycombe, to be fair, harried us at all times, broke quickly, got back quickly, and bossed the game. Easy to see how they undid Millwall.'

'Disgraceful performance against a very poor Wycombe team. Can't believe they out-fought us.'
'Never got into the game and Wycombe bossed it.'
Greenholme Bee wrote:
'We were embarrassing. Wycombe outplayed us all night and we managed one header on target which was our only chance of the whole game.'
'For me the ref determined the result. We were all over Wycombe for the first ten minutes and then they started throwing their weight around and he did nothing.'
'The way I saw it, Wycombe looked like they wanted to win and put themselves about like men.'
'A truly disgraceful performance tonight - not a worthwhile save required by their keeper and they're bottom of the league! Our keeper saved us from a hammering.'

'It was a midfield battle in difficult conditions. Wycombe won the battle.'
The Chairboys now have a free weekend to recover from two full-blooded performances in the space of four days.
