Another impressive home win and performance for Wanderers at the weekend!

Chesterfield were certainly one of the best teams I have seen in recent weeks at Adams Park. They had a different style from a lot of teams Wycombe have played this season.

They pass it out from the back and gave Wanderers problems by swamping the midfield which nullified the threat of Ebere Eze and Sam Saunders, especially in the first half.

However, it was a highly professional display from the Blues and what a goal to win it from Luke O’Nien. It was a wonderful hit by the midfielder, an absolute rocket on his left foot worthy of winning any game.

Then they saw out the game with arguably their best defensive display of the season. I thought the organisation and resilience shown by the team as a whole was fantastic and Scott Brown was hardly tested.

Adam El-Abd led the way with a terrific performance at the back. He and Anthony Stewart were absolutely flawless and didn’t allow the dangerous Kristian Dennis a sniff.

With El-Abd, he is proving to be one of the best centre halves in the league on current performances. He has been a rock defensively with a first-class positional sense and he has shown an assured touch on the ball.

The goals and threat from the Chairboys is still in abundance but they are showing a real defensive steel in recent weeks that was maybe missing at times at the beginning of the season.

To be fourth in the league after their last home game before Christmas is a great achievement. I think if you said that scenario to Gareth, he would have bitten your hand off for it.

Next up for the Blues is a tricky trip to Coventry, he saw off Wycombe to reach the Checkatrade Trophy final last season.

That defeat deprived Wanderers the chance of a memorable day out at Wembley and I know a few of the players were hurting after that loss so they will want to make amends.

I can’t wait to be at Adams Park on Boxing Day against Newport. I think the tradition of a Boxing Day game is a part of the game in this country and I hope that it remains on the calendar.

Wycombe put in a great performance at Newport earlier in the season but only drew 0-0 despite holding the upper hand for most of the game.

With the games coming thick and fast over the festive period, it is a defining moment in the season and the table really takes shape.

Merry Christmas to all our readers. COYB!
