Re-live the 'Wycombe time' classics

Stoppage time has thrown up some incredible moments down the years.

11 January 2022

Joe Jacobson's equaliser against Sunderland was the 21st goal scored by the Chairboys in second-half stoppage time at Adams Park since the start of the 2014/15 season... here are the best of the rest.

Aaron Amadi-Holloway vs Northampton, 04/10/14
Wanderers trailed 1-0 to Ryan Cresswell's first header and threw the kitchen sink at the 10-man Cobblers in the second period, being rewarded when Aaron Amadi-Holloway rose highest to head home Joe Jacobson's corner with 97:34 on the clock.

Paul Hayes vs Exeter, 14/04/15
An epic end-to-end game between two promotion chasers ran deep into stopage time with the score at 1-1, and when Aaron Pierre was tripped at the very end of the game, Paul Hayes converted a penalty on 101:45 to spark pandemonium across the town.

Aaron Pierre vs Dagenham, 22/08/15
Former Chairboy Matt McClure appeared to have dented Wycombe's unbeaten start to the 2015/16 campaign, but Aaron Pierre came up trumps with a 95th minute equaliser (94:38) and famously celebrated the moment with a young ballboy.

Anthony Stewart vs Grimsby, 13/08/16
With the scores tied at 1-1 in the Chairboys' first home league game of the season, the stage was set for new signing Adebayo Akinfenwa to grab the limelight in stoppage time, and he nearly did, flicking a long throw onto the post only for Anthony Stewart to smash home the loose ball to win the game with 90:12 played.

Paris Cowan-Hall and Marcus Bean vs Carlisle, 03/02/18
Wanderers led 2-0 at half-time but trailed 3-2 to Carlisle after losing Luke O'Nien to a red card, and seeing Joe Jacobson's penalty saved. Paris Cowan-Hall dived in to head Craig Mackail-Smith's cross past the keeper on 92:03, and Marcus Bean sparked euphoria with a volleyed winner on 95:15.

Craig Mackail-Smith vs Scunthorpe, 20/10/18
Gareth Ainsworth's men were 2-0 down inside seven minutes, but recovered thanks to smart strikes from Dominic Gape and Fred Onyedinma, only to then lose Ryan Allsop to a red card. The Blues looked to be hanging on for a draw with Yves Ma-Kalambay in goal, but Craig Mackail-Smith robbed a defender on halfway and charged through on goal to stroke home a winner with 93:25 played.

Paris Cowan-Hall vs Doncaster, 12/01/19
Doncaster were 2-0 up with 15 minutes to play, but Cowan-Hall and Curtis Thompson swung the pendulum in Wycombe's favour as the game entered stoppage time, and Cowan-Hall's looped header completed a remarkable turnaround on 93:38.

Scott Kashket vs Southend, 24/08/19
Wycombe's superb start to the season came under threat from struggling Southend, who went 2-0 and 3-1 up at Adams Park. Scott Kashket made it 3-2, and Anthony Stewart smashed home for 3-3 shortly before the clock hit 90, before Kashket rolled home Nick Freeman's exquisite pass on 91:44.

Adebayo Akinfenwa vs Peterborough, 05/10/19
Another see-saw game saw the Posh open up a two-goal lead, but Akinfenwa's header and an own goal made it 2-2 before Ivan Toney lashed the visitors back in front. However, a late push in the box saw the referee point to the spot and Adebayo Akinfenwa did the honours on 94:28, before Wycombe's 10 men performed heroics to keep the ball out at the other end in a mad goalmouth scramble.

Joe Jacobson vs Doncaster, 23/11/19
Rovers held on valiantly after being reduced to 10 men, but a foul in the area presented an opportunity for Joe Jacobson to win the game in the pouring rain, and he did just that on 91:11.

Joe Jacobson vs Rochdale, 18/01/20
Ian Henderson's fortunate goal put Dale in front before Jason McCarthy's looped cross-shot landed in the net to make it 1-1, and the game looked destined for a draw before Luke Matheson tripped Paul Smyth in the box and Jacobson's penalty landed in the net on 93:57.

Adebayo Akinfenwa vs Bristol City, 21/04/21
Wycombe were in must-win territory in the battle for survival in the Championship, and threw David Stockdale forward for a late corner. Stockdale's shot was handled by Kasey Palmer, and Akinfenwa converted his first and last Championship goal from the spot on 92:41.

Curtis Thompson vs Morecambe, 02/10/21
The Chairboys were 2-0 down at half-time in the pouring rain, but turned the game on its head with Daryl Horgan, Sam Vokes and Ryan Tafazolli on target. A third Morecambe goal made it 3-3, but a fast counter-attack at the death saw the ball spin out to Curtis Thompson, who smashed it home from 20 yards on 91:59.

Ryan Tafazolli vs Crewe, 23/10/21
Tafazolli put the Blues 1-0 up but their perfect home record looked to have come to an end when Tom Lowery equalised. However, the Iranian defender found himself well-placed to turn Jordan Obita's cross home (with a little help from a fan in the crowd, whose quick reactions saw the ball returned to play swiftly) on 96:30.
