Anthony Stewart had three reasons to celebrate last night following Chairboys’ 2-0 victory at Exeter City in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Not only did the Blues secure their passage into the second round, but Stewart headed home Sam Wood’s cross eight minutes from time to secure the win, and also played a major role as Gareth Ainsworth’s men recorded a deserved clean sheet.
“I didn’t actually expect to get on it, but you have to gamble in the box and that’s what I did,” Stewart told wwfc.com.
“We had the mindset where we wanted to come out and do well from the start and keep our winning run going - that’s what we’ve done.
“I’d always prefer a clean sheet over a goal. Goals are nice, but clean sheets count for more.
“I always believed that I could score goals from the youth team. I’d already got the one for the first team and I always knew I could score more like I have tonight.”
