The final chance of the game fell to the impressive Scowen, but his strike was always rising and failed to trouble the Forest Green goal.

Josh Scowen cleared Eddie Oshodi's header off the line from a corner and James Norwood had a 20-yard strike well saved by Matt Ingram, before the keeper denied Norwood again seven minutes from time with a fine stop.

minute, however, his header was just off target following a move involving Grant Basey, Joel Grant and Beavon. th Chairboys came close to falling behind moments later when Vieira headed Styche's cross inches wide and Logan almost made them pay for that miss in the 49

Chances were few and far between in the opening period and it was the Blues who had the first effort after the break when Richard Logan was picked out by Sam Wood's clever pass, but the striker sliced his shot.

Styche had an effort of his own on the half-hour mark, however, Bull comfortably dealt with the long-range strike.

Magno Vieira had Forest Green's first chance three minutes later, but Nikki Bull reacted quickly and made himself big to deny the former Wycombe striker after he was played in by Reece Styche.

Skipper Doherty then headed the resulting corner at keeper Sam Russell.

minute when Stuart Beavon picked up Gary Doherty's lofted ball and fired goalwards, only for his low strike to deflect off a defender and drift wide. th Blues had the first effort of the game in the 19

Neither side were able to create many clear-cut chances, but it was a good workout for Wycombe against a physical and well-organised opponent.
