Following a disappointing loss to Guildford in their last home game Wycombe mens first XI entertained Purley Walcountians.

Despite their lowly position in the league, Wycombe knew that this would be a testing game.

Having previously failed to start games well Wycombe came flying out the traps. Founded upon a possession based approach Wycombe soon took the lead with a well worked team goal which started from a 16.

Possession was recycled in open play before birthday boy Lukas Qureshi, who would later leave the game injured, was in the right place to make the score 1-0.

Belying their lowly league status, Purley battled back. Perhaps guilty of overplaying from the back Wycombe lost possession of the ball in their 16.

In attempting to stop their forward from scoring Cameron Ryall was awarded a yellow card; a penalty stoke was given for what was deemed a deliberate foul in the circle.

Purley scored the resulting flick to level the scores at 1-1. Buoyed by the goal Purley quickly scored again with a close range tap in for 1-2.

Wycombe knew that they would have to score first in the second half and Will Needham duly obliged. Wycombe laid seige to the Purley goal and Needham was in the right place to score.

With pressure mounting on Purley indiscipline set in. They were awarded three yellow cards in the second half for stopping Wycombe from playing.

Unfortunately due to a combination of poor composure and execution from Wycombe and some aggressive defending from Purley, Wycombe were unable to find the elusive third goal and disappointingly the game finished 2-2.
