Wycombe Wanderers scored a whopping 23 goals by the end of September, equalling a club record for the amount of league goals scored by that point since the start of the season.

Last season, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Scott Kashket topped the scoring charts with 18 goals and 16 goals respectively with a bit of a gap back to the third top scorer at the club.

This term, Akinfenwa leads the way once again with six goals so far but the goals have been rattling in with the likes of Joe Jacobson on three goals and a host of players on two goals including Akinfenwa’s strike partners, Nathan Tyson and Craig Mackail-Smith.

The front three and Josh Umerah, who grabbed his first senior goal last weekend, have got 11 goals between them and Akinfenwa hailed the quality and depth of the squad.

He said: “It was great to see Josh score his first senior goal. It was also beautiful to see Craig get his first goal for us as we are all delighted for him because he works tirelessly for the team.

“The more we can get goals from different players, the more it breeds confidence into the squad. For me, you can see Macca, one of the fittest team, and Nathan, who is one oquickest in the squad, produce the goods. Age is nothing but a number for me but we have to keep on our toes as there are plenty of guys such as Paris, Josh and Nick who are very good players.

“It really does show that with the experienced boys we know who we have breathing down our necks and we go for as long as we can and we know who there is to come in so there is a beautiful balance at the moment.”

The young players who have come unto the squad in recent weeks have really impressed the experienced front man and he said their mentality is one of their strongest assets.

He added: “It is great to see the likes of Dan Scarr coming in and show what he is about. He made a comment to me that he doesn’t lose headers and it is great to see youngsters like that have confidence and I am really impressed.

“Their mentality and how they have clicked into the squad is brilliant and all three of them have shown their quality.

“Ebere Eze, for me, has all the ability in the world and they have fitted in like a jigsaw puzzle.”

Tomorrow represents a tough game for the Blues, and Akinfenwa is looking forward to testing himself against one his old rivals.

He commented: “I will be up against Leon Legge on Saturday and I have known him for many years and it is always a good battle.

“Cambridge are a big strong side from defence right through to their two strikers, Jabo Ibehre and Uche Ikpeazu.

“To be fair, there is no easy game at this level and we know it will be tough and we are working tirelessly on the training field and hope to continue this winning run.”

Akinfenwa himself added he was happy with his own form at the moment too.

“I am happy with myself at the moment,” explained Akinfenwa.

“I have played a lot of minutes so far, although I missed two games.

“The main thing for me though is that the team wins and as long as that happens I am happy.”
