Flashback: 2017 - Chairboys edge five-goal thriller vs Crewe

Take a look at what happened when we last met Crewe.

16 January 2018

As the Chairboys prepare to head to the Alexandra Stadium this weekend, take a look back at what happened when the two sides met at Adams park in September.

It was late delight for the Chairboys as they came from behind to defeat the Railwaymen on a memorable night at the home of the Wanderers.

The Chairboys' early dominance was rewarded on 29 minutes as Craig Mackail-Smith opened the scoring. The striker latched onto Adebayo Akinfenwa's flick-on, rounded the keeper, and eventually converted to give the home side a deserved lead.

After a comfortable spell for Wanderers, Crewe's first sniff of goal handed them the equaliser shortly before half-time. Chris Porter rose highest to nod down Perry Ng's deep cross and Chris Dagnall was there to prod home.

Despite Wycombe's pressure, it would be Crewe who would take the lead on the break on 67 minutes. Dagnall bagged a brace as he slotted past Scott Brown following a flick-on from a route one ball. Two chances, two goals for the Alex.

Michael Harriman took it upon himself to draw the game level with less than three minutes of normal time remaining. A long punt from Brown was touched back by Akinfenwa to Ebere Eze who then set Tyson off down the wing. The forward found Harriman who smashed it into the far corner first time.

What was good, got a whole lot better on the 90 minute mark. Eze picked out Tyson on the left and off he went. He powered his way towards the box and sent a thunderous strike past Ben Garratt sending the home fans wild.

3-2 is how it finished in a pulsating fixture at Adams Park.
