Kashket's winning goal delight

The 'Little Genius' speaks following comeback victory over Southend United.

27 August 2019

Following Saturday's inspirational victory over League One strugglers Southend United, Scott Kashket expressed his delight after netting the winning goal at Adams Park.

Anthony Stewart netted the leveller with just one minute remaining on the clock, before an additional six minutes allowed time for Kashket to tuck the ball underneath the dispairing Shrimpers keeper Nathan Bishop.

The Chairboys remain unbeaten in league competition heading into Saturday's encounter with AFC Wimbledon, winning three and drawing two of their opening fixtures.

Now, the former Leyton Orient man is fully focused on retaining his place in the starting line-up and continuing his goal-scoring form.

"I was absolutely over the moon to get the win and get all three points. Unfortunately we conceded three and went behind - but if anything, we made it entertaining for the fans.

"I like to base my game around scoring goals and getting in the right position. If I get there, I always back myself to score.

"I hadn't played any minutes in the league leading up to the game - so for me, it was massive for me. Hopefully it lets the gaffer know what I can do and get more minutes in the next match."

Wycombe have become synonymous with comeback victories over the years, with Marcus Bean's famous late strike against Carlisle United and Craig Mackail-Smith's winner versus Scunthorpe United last season highlighting the resilience in the team.

"Being 3-1 down hurt. But as soon as we got our second, I just felt like another one was coming. We always believed that we would turn it around. Even at 3-3, we thought that if we get the ball, we're getting another.

"These wins always come at Adams Park! So the fans are definitely getting their money's worth."
