Wycombe Wanderers were well beaten in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Watford, as the Chairboys fell to a 4-1 defeat.

Taking place at the Hornets’ training ground in London Colney, a brace from Ismaila Sarr, a strike from Emmanuel Dennis, and a Yaser Asprilla goal saw the Hertfordshire-side defeat Gareth Ainsworth’s men in what was the first-team’s first loss this pre-season.

The first goal came just 120 seconds into the match when Sarr scored with a penalty.

He then got his second in the first-half after he rolled home from intercepting a loose ball, before Dennis made it 3-0 before the break.

In what was the first meeting between the two sides since March 2021, Wycombe pulled a goal back through Ryan Tafazolli after he was set up by Ali Al-Hamadi.

Asprilla then slammed home a fourth goal for Watford to seal the victory for Rob Edwards’ side.
