Following a disappointing loss to Guildford last weekend Wycombe Men’s first XI travelled to Staines and got back on track with a 3-2 win. 

Fortunately Wycombe did not repeat last week’s insipid display and were on the front foot early, dominating possession. 

A patient move led to Stephen Sloan eventually receiving the ball and scoring with a composed low finish once he had rounded the keeper. 

Wycombe then had to withstand Staines pressure; Sam Burroughs denying a goal-bound drag flick off the post. 

However, Staines soon equalised; a highly contentious penalty flick award led to the scores being 1-1. Wycombe followed their game plan and displayed great composure with Sloan duly converting a penalty flick to make it 1-2 heading into half-time. 

Wycombe started the second half much like the first and were rewarded for their pressure. Needham received the ball at the top of the D and struck a reverse stick shot low into the corner to make it 1-3.

Staines ‘second goal came from a penalty flick and although they looked for an equaliser, Wycombe displayed excellent game management to hold on.
