WANDERERS are on top of League Two after their 1-0 win over top-of-the-table rivals Grimsby on Friday night.

Tommy Mooney was the hero at both ends, scoring the only goal of the game after 11 minutes and then clearing off the line as Grimsby staged a second-half onslaught.

But it wasn't just the Mooney show. Wanderers had a team of heroes out there and a real star for the future in debutant keeper Andy Lonergan.

The on-loan Preston stopper produced a stunning save, reminiscent of Gordon Banks' stop against Brazil, to foil Michael Reddy as Grimsby chucked everything but the kitchen sink at Wycombe in the second half.

He also tipped Justin Whittle's 54th minute overhead kick onto the bar as well as producing match-saving stops to deny Michael Reddy and Martin Gritton.

Blues thoroughly outclassed Grimsby in the first half but they had to show their defensive qualities in the second as Grimsby refused to give up their position at the top of the table without a fight.

Mooney cleared off the line on 84 minutes, then Grimsby had another effort hacked off the line on 88 minutes.

Wycombe totally dominated the first half and would have had a much easier ride in the second if the linesman had not raised his flag in the 51st minute when a Mooney cross was glanced home by the head of the diving Sergio Torres.

The Blues missing the injured Nathan Tyson and Rob Lee controlled the opening 45 minutes.

Kevin Betsy tortured Grimsby down the right and it was from an inch perfect cross from his left boot that Mooney evaded his marker to head Wycombe into a well deserved early lead.

The lead should have been more. Matt Bloomfield wastefully headed wide after Betsy and Danny Senda caused Grimsby more problems down the right. Mooney went close as well, sticking a boot out to nudge another Senda cross just over the bar as Wycombe assumed total control.

Grimsby went into the break knowing they were lucky to still be in the game and their luck continued as Torres' effort early into the second half was ruled out.

But, roared on by a hostile 7,000 plus, who had been lured into Blundell Park by the dual prospect of seeing their side at the top of the table and also vouchers for their team's cup game against Newcastle, Grimsby became an increasing force as the half raced on but Wycombe dug deep to ensure that they replaced the Mariners at the top of the pile.
