Wow! For the second home game in a row Wycombe left it late as they produced another thriller at Adams Park to snatch all three points, writes Oliver White

Scott Kashket was the man of the hour as two very cool and calm finishes helped Wycombe edge Southend at Adams Park. 

However, Southend without a win so far this season, or a point for that matter, didn’t roll over and have their tummies tickled as some Wanderers fans may have thought. 

The masked man that was Stephen Humphrys was causing the Wycombe defence all sorts of problems and having already taken an early lead, Humpheys with too much time curled in an absolute stunner to put the Chairboys two behind.  

An own goal to remember by captain Mark Milligan got Wycombe back into the game but minutes after the restart Humphrys was given too much space again and toe poked another exceptional goal from 20 yards leaving it all for Wycombe to do.  

But Gareth Ainsworth’s men just simply don’t know when they’re beaten. Kashket who was given his first start of the season stepped up and took the game by the scruff of the neck.

He latched on Alex Pattison’s scuffed shot and coolly stroked the ball into the net starting the comeback. 

For the remaining half an hour, Southend were camped in their own half, often with all eleven players behind the ball. 

Adebayo Akinfenwa and Nick Freeman were introduced but as the game entered the final five minutes, it looked like it was going to be a case of what might have been. 

The substitutions worked, and with a deft touc Akinfenwa teed up Anthony Stewart to produce a finish the big man would have been pleased with. 

With the wind in their sails and five minutes of added time remaining a remarkable turnaround was completed.

Kashket, Wycombe’s best player of the afternoon, was found by the other substitute Freeman and after cutting inside and sitting down one defender, he slotted home confidently sending Adams Park into melt down. 

Wycombe will learn a lot from this game. They will know their defending must improve but also know they are a special team who all believing in each other and can beat anyone with their never say die attitude.

This result makes it the best ever start to a League One campaign and with Gareth leading the way this could be a very exciting Chairboys season.
