Following yesterday's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United, here are some thoughts on the game from the Iron's manager Alan Knill and a few of their fans.
"I thought we played really well," said Knill, speaking to his club's official website.
"We played with a lot of movement, a lot of passing, and I thought we were excellent. The players stepped forward today and really took the game to Wycombe. They did all the things we asked them to. Go forwards, isolate people and show some quality."
"We are obviously disappointed not to win as we had the better clear-cut chances and didn't take them, but in the end, when you come from a goal down you'll happily take a point."
"I said earlier this week, they (Wycombe) have plenty of momentum after coming up. They've got some really good players and it just shows that we've got some really good players as well."
Referring to the Iron's disallowed goal in stoppage time, Knill said: "Someone's just told me that he (Dagnall) was well onside, so it's just one of those things. There's not much you can do about it."
The Scunthorpe fans felt their side had created more than enough chances to win the game.
The following extracts are taken from Iron-Bru.net and Football Forums.
"You could tell their keeper knew that he had got away with the late Dagnall goal which was disallowed. What worries me is the fact that apart from their goal and hitting the post, Wycombe never looked a threat, but we still conceded from their only effort on target.'
"I thought it was a lively performance. The midfield looked great (Ryan and O Connor practically running the show) and we could easily have come away with 3 points had we buried more than one of our 14 shots on target! Not to be too dismissive of Wycombe, but it was plainly obvious to see that there were 2 divisions between the two sides last season. We just need someone to stick away chances.'
"I thought we played a lot better today and looked like a team at last. But for some bad luck and a better linesman we could have had 3 or 4.'
"Good performance. However, we really should have won by two or three and our strikers are going to have to start finishing much better. Their goal was pretty soft and they weren't brilliant, but the most impressive things about us today were, firstly, we played some good football to feet, secondly, we won the midfield and created chances; and thirdly, the team spirit seemed very positive'
"We definitely should have won with the chances we created. Robertson and O'Connor both should have scored at least once. To be honest though, Wycombe offered very little and yet they still managed to score and take a point from us. That's a concern for me as we will come up against much better sides.'
"14 shots on target to their 1 ... I can't believe we didn't win that game.'
"Great support and a great day, shame about the result!'
"Agreed. Great support. My 11 year old said he enjoyed this game more than any other away game he's seen. Reflective of the atmosphere I think, and the wit of those chanting at the big guy from Wycombe 'You're the face of Pukka Pies'.
