The wait goes on.

After six hours of Championship football, Wycombe are still seeking their first point and their first goal, after old rivals Luton Town condemned them to a fourth successive defeat with a 2-0 victory at Kenilworth Road.

Although Wanderers were deservedly beaten by Blackburn and Swansea in recent weeks, losing this game was harder to take because they gave a much-improved performance.

Matching Luton for long periods, Wycombe came close to scoring on a couple of occasions and were on the wrong end of some disappointing decisions by Premier League referee Graham Scott.

However, you do not get any points for hard luck stories and there must be a significant improvement if Gareth Ainsworth’s team are to finally get off the mark at this level.

They now have a long break before the next game, at home to Millwall on October 17th, and the Wycombe manager says he will use the time to recruit new players.

Ainsworth has been unable to pick his strongest team in any game so far.

Talisman Bayo Akinfenwa is recovering from a knee operation, new signings Ryan Tafazolli and Uche Ikpeazu, and midfield ‘general’ Dominic Gape were all missing at Luton because of injury.

Wycombe made four changes from the side beaten by Swansea. Darius Charles and Joe Jacobson were recalled in defence, Daryl Horgan was preferred to Fred Onyedinma in attack, and Matt Bloomfield was left out for the first time this season to accommodate the return of Curtis Thompson.

After conceding early goals against Blackburn and Swansea, Wycombe looked more solid in defence during a goalless and largely uneventful first half.

Things livened up after the break and both sides had their chances before a moment of magic from Luton broke the deadlock. Midfielder Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu took possession just outside the Wycombe penalty area before curling a brilliant shot into the top corner to give the home side the lead.

Wycombe thought they had grabbed their first ever Championship goal – and with it a chance of their first point of the season – only to see a late effort by Scott Kashket ruled out for a marginal offside.

Luton added a second goal in the last minute, and to rub salt into Wycombe’s wounds it was scored by Elliot Lee whose father Rob played for the Blues when John Gorman was manager.

The early season statistics make grim reading for Wanderers - four defeats out of four, ten goals conceded, and none scored – but it is far too early to panic.

Last season it was Luton who made a bad start to life in the Championship, collecting just one point from a possible 12 in the opening weeks, but they survived and there’s no reason why Wycombe can’t do the same.
