Wycombe Wanderers made it five League One wins on the spin at home as they secured a 3-2 victory against Shrewsbury Town in a lively encounter at Adams Park.

Goals from Shrewsbury old boys Adam El-Abd and Joe Jacobson and a third of the season for Alex Samuel gave the Blues maximum points against Danny Coyne's side.

Former Wycombe striker Aaron Holloway gave the visitors an early lead and Fejiri Okenabirhie scored with 20 minutes to make the game interesting.

Wycombe made a fast start and Fred Onyedinma came close to opening the scoring in the first minute, letting fly from 20 yards which whistled just past the post.

However, Shrewsbury opened the scoring on three minutes when Holloway headed home from eight yards after great work down the right by Greg Docherty.

With their very next attack, former Shrews defender El-Abd equalised with an incredible effort, controlling expertly before rifling home from 15 yards past Steve Arnold.

Wycombe were beginning to get on top and brilliant work by Jason McCarthy on 16 minutes saw him storm into the box but his low cross was cleared.

There was a really lively tempo to the game with Shrewsbury looking lively up top and Wanderers possessing plenty of threat going forward.

More great work by McCarthy on the half-hour mark presented Nathan Tyson with a chance but he was always stretching for the ball and it went out of play for a goal kick.

The Blues were looking good and Jacobson gave the Chairboys a deserved lead on 40 minutes, smashing home an unstoppable shot with his right foot to give Arnold absolutely no chance.

Shrewsbury immediately responded and Luke Waterfall smashed a header against the post from six yards on 42 minutes.

The second half started in fairly even fashion. The tireless Alex Samuel saw a shot from a very tight angle drift harmlessly over on 52 minutes.

Excellent work from Samuel again presented a chance for Nick Freeman on 55 minutes but his fierce strike was blocked by Josh Emmanuel.

Wanderers came close to making it 3-1 on the hour when Sido Jombati headed into the side netting from Jacobson’s wicked corner.

The Blues were knocking on the door and Arnold made a smart save on 62 minutes to deny Freeman’s rasping effort.

Wycombe managed to keep up the tempo and managed to extend their advantage on 71 minutes when Samuel rifled home from 12 years after brilliant football from Randell Williams and Freeman, who laid it to him.

However, a minute later, Shrewsbury capitalised on a mistake in midfield and Okenabirhie coolly slotted home after a lovely pass from Oliver Norburn.

Wycombe continued to press for a fourth goal with Onyedinma to the fore although Shrewsbury.

El-Abd had a great chance to make it four and the game safe on 82 minutes but he headed over when well placed from Jacobson's corner.

Wanderers looked more likely to get a fourth that the Shrews did to equalise and Dominic Gape's piledriver from 25 yards on 85 minutes only just went over.

With the win, Wycombe jump to 12th in League One and face Accrington Stanley away on Tuesday evening.
