Matt Bloomfield lost his first game in charge of Wycombe Wanderers as his team fell to a 2-0 defeat away at Shrewsbury Town.

The opening 45 minutes saw the Chairboys enjoy a large portion of the ball as they forced Marko Marosi into several stops.

After Brandon Hanlan’s effort on 13 minutes from a tight angle smashed into the side netting, Garath McCleary saw his low shot from 13-yards go straight down the keeper’s throat.

Jordan Obita’s free-kick was expertly pushed away by the shot-stopper, whilst a Sam Vokes attempt went wide.

It was a promising half for Wycombe, but on 31 minutes, they suffered a real sucker punch as they went a goal down through a Jordan Willis own goal.

Christian Saydee did brilliantly to get past Joe Jacobson on the left-hand side before he whipped in a terrific cross into the six-yard box.

The delivery seemed routine for Max Stryjek to collect, but Willis got onto the end of the cross and tipped it past his own keeper.

Wanderers started the second period the better as they again had their fair share of attempts.

Hanlan fired over, Lewis Wing was inches away and Obita saw his free-kick narrowly miss the target.

Substitute Chem Campbell also saw his shot from the edge of the box get blocked by Marosi in the Shrewsbury goal.

However, the Shrews wrapped up the win in the final five minutes when Rekeil Pyke scored his third of the season from two-yards.

It was the hosts' first shot on target in the match.

Up next for Wanderers is an away trip to Bracknell Town in the Berks & Bucks Cup on February 28.
