In the wake of yesterday's unlucky 1-0 defeat at home to Coventry City, here are some thoughts on the game from the Sky Blues' manager Steven Pressley and a few of their fans.
The Coventry boss was pleased to make it through to the next round with a young team consisting mainly of academy players.
"Coming here and getting a result with such a young squad is an outstanding effort, 11 of the 15 came up through the Academy, and I'm really proud of them," said Pressley.
"We weren't at our best tonight, although that's credit to Wycombe who pressed us very hard. I said to the group before the game that football is ultimately about winning and that's particularly important in a cup competition."
"Going into the game, we knew it would be a difficult test as they've had a great start to the season and it proved to be the case."
"It was a great goal to win the game and it epitomised the type of football we like to play here. Quick, sharp, counter-attacking football which was brilliant."
"The young lads stood up to the physical aspects of the game really well, especially when we were under a lot of aerial threat in the second half."
The Coventry fans enjoyed their win but knew they were fortunate.
The following extracts are taken from Sky Blues Talk, GMK online and Twitter.
"Playing out from the back nearly caught us out on numerous occasions. Pretty much all of Wycombe`s attacks came from us giving up possession and an alarmingly high number of passes played across our own box. Still a win is a win."
"Wow, how did we win that. It must have been the most one sided game I have seen in a long while. We were awful, one attack, one goal, admittedly a good goal but christ we were woeful."
"We were singing 1-0 to the Under-9s after 17-year-old Kyle Spence was handed his debut to make nine academy graduates on the pitch."
"Great win for the young skyblues against an in-form Wycombe side."
"It's a skyblues record for the club to have nine out of 11 players on the pitch from the Academy."
"Most one sided football match I've ever seen. How we beat Wycombe I will never know."
"Wycombe were exceptional tonight, definite contenders for play-offs. City were outplayed in most areas."
"Not the best game in the world, but we did enough. Wycombe huffed and puffed but apart from a header towards the end, they didn't really look like scoring."
