In the wake of yesterday's 2-1 home defeat to Accrington Stanley, here are some views on the game from Stanley manager John Coleman and a few of their fans.
The Accrington manager gave an accurate assessment of the game.
"We rode our luck a little bit in the first half, Wycombe were on top and they're a good side and have some excellent players," said Coleman.
"We had a bit of fortune with the goal being disallowed, then I thought we slowly warmed to the game. We scored against the run of play to take the lead and then conceded when possibly at the strongest we'd been in the game and that was disappointing as it was a mistake by Phil Edwards."
"An individual error is always difficult to take as a team, but after that we took the game to Wycombe and had three great chances in the next five minutes. We plugged away until we got the goal and then we saw the game out."
"It was an unbelievable finish by Phil Edwards and what better way to make up for his mistake than to score a header like that. I don't think you will see a better header today."
The Accrington fans were naturally delighted with their unexpected triumph.
The following extracts are taken from accringtonweb,com.
'Just back from the game and the thing that struck me today was the mental strength of the team. Examples of this are Jacobson being under great pressure for 40 minutes but scoring and having a great second half, and Edwards making a terrible mistake for their goal then scoring the winner. Make no mistake Wycombe are a good side, but despite a lot of possession, I can't recall our keeper having to make a save.'
'Shattered after the journey. Fantastic result, agreed Jacobsen had a nightmare first-half, but was magnificent in the second. Gornell didn't stop - brilliant yet again. Craney was absolute garbage, but to be honest I'm not that fussed. Three points and a great win! Bring on next week.'
'Could be rated as the best result of the season so far. Well done to the fans who went like Daniel into the lions' den. Let's hope the pitch is ok for Crewe on Tuesday and we can reward the faithful fans at the Crown with another win, then we can look up the league a bit more instead of down.'
That was it for posts about the game, but on a sadder note, the Stanley fans are worried about troubled times ahead.
'Brace yourselves again please. It's going to get rough between now and the end of the season. By the end of this month we'll owe the taxman around 100k. We have nowt coming in. The difference between incomings and outgoings is massive and we won't pull it around. There is a directors meeting planned in London this weekend and big decisions have to be made. I have no knowledge of what these decisions are about but I can guess. It's going to get messy but the only good news I can take from it really, is that it's finally coming to some sort of head. With a bit of luck it'll all be over for the new season - it's just a question of how much pain we can take between now and then.'
