Wycombe Wanderers are on the cusp of breaking an unwanted club record following their latest defeat. They were beaten 2-0 by Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park (report to follow) which saw the side equal a club record of five successive league games without scoring a single goal.
This season Gary Waddock's men have failed to score against...
Bury (H - L0-2)
Huddersfield Town (A - L0-3)
Brentford (H - L0-1)
Yeovil Town (A - L0-1); and
Tranmere Rovers (A - L0-2).
The last league goal came courtesy of Joel Grant's header that sealed a 3-1 win at Leyton Orient back on Tuesday 16th August.
The current side become the fourth to draw five successive blanks. The last time the Blues failed to score in five successive league games was back in October and November 1996 under caretaker boss Neil Smillie and then John Gregory. They failed to find the net against...
Bristol City (A - L0-3)
Stockport County (H - L0-2)
Wrexham (H - D0-0)
York City (A - L0-2); and
Crewe Alexandra (A - L0-3)
The drought was ended with a 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle at Adams Park.
Somewhat surprisingly Martin O'Neill's side suffered a similar lack of penetration in March 1995. They failed to notch against...
Bristol Rovers (A - L0-1)
York City (A - D0-0)
Birmingham City (H - L0-3)
Brentford (A - D0-0); and
Crewe Alexandra (H - D0-0)
They finally hit the onion bag in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Adams Park.
The first time the club went on such a barren run was way back in April 1900. The side was competing in the Second Division of the Southern League and failed to score against...
Fulham (A - L0-2)
Dartford (A - L0-6)
Wolverton L&NWR (A - L0-5)
Fulham (H - L0-6); and
Grays United (A - L0-9).
That sequence was ended with a 2-2 draw against Brentford in the last league game of the season at Daws Hill Park (which is a part of Wycombe Abbey that was being used as temporary home whilst Loakes Park was levelled).
As mentioned above however, the current team could be set to make history all by themselves. If they fail to score against Sheffield United, who visit Adams Park next Saturday (24th September), they will record a sixth successive blank and that is something no other Wycombe Wanderers team has done in the club's 124-year history.
