Flashback: 2014 - Chairboys come back to win at the Lamex

A look back at our last win away at Stevenage.

6 December 2017

Ahead of our trip to the Lamex Stadium to take on Stevenage this weekend, we decided to take a look at our last win there in August 2014.

Wycombe collected their third win in four league games at the start of the 2014/15 season, with a brilliant 3-1 triumph.

Gareth Ainsworth's men had to do it the hard way, coming from behind to claim all three points after Darius Charles had opened the scoring for Stevenage in the first half.

The opening goal had been a real moment of controversy on 34 minutes. Charles and Matt Ingram collided when challenging for the ball outside the box, and while Ingram lay stricken on the turf, Charles clipped the ball home. After a long period whilst Ingram received treatment, the referee awarded the goal. 

But the Blues weren’t behind for long, and if Boro’s goal was down to brute force, then this was a moment of magic from Paul Hayes. The captain controlled a cross with an exquisite touch before juggling the ball past a defender and lashing it home in emphatic fashion. 

And Wanderers’ second goal owed a lot to a training ground move which completely bamboozled the home side. Three visiting players appeared to make a mess of a free-kick routine before Sam Wood clipped the ball into the box, where Peter Murphy had evaded his marker and tapped home from close range. 

Matt McClure was Wycombe’s final sub in the second, replacing Hayes in the dying stages, and his first involvement of the game was to tap home into an empty net to double the visitors’ advantage. 

Stuart Lewis had broken the offside trap to latch on to a through-ball and after nudging it past the onrushing keeper, McClure was on hand to finish the job with aplomb. 

Wycombe: Ingram, Jombati, Jacobson, Mawson, Pierre, Cowan-Hall (Bloomfield 80), Rowe, Murphy, Wood, Craig (Lewis 74), Hayes (McClure 88). 
Subs: Richardson, Kretzschmar, Walker, Holloway. 

Stevenage: Beasant, Ashton, Wells, Dembele (Pett 45), Okimo, Whelpdale, Walton, Bond (Marriott 45), Deacon, Lee, Charles (Johnson 88). 
Subs: Day, Henry.
