Wycombe finally have their first point as a Championship club, and it could so easily have been their first win but for a brilliant display by Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster and another controversial disallowed goal.

For the second time in four days, Wanderers faced a side who were playing in the Premier League only last season, but you would never have guessed there were two divisions between the teams just a couple of months ago.

The unlucky defeat at Norwich proved that the Chairboys have what it takes to survive in this division, but their performance against Watford was even better.

They tore into their illustrious opponents right from the kick-off, giving them no time on the ball with a pressing game that had the visitors rattled.

Watford’s defence struggled to cope with the pace and energy of Wycombe’s diminutive striker Scott Kashket, who might have had a hat trick if visiting ‘keeper Foster hadn’t been in such magnificent form.

Foster, an England international who holds the record for the most saves in Premier League history, was deservedly voted man-of-the-match by Sky TV, who screened the game live.

One first half save to deny Kashket his third goal in four games was world class, and he was also at his best to thwart David Wheeler early in the second half.

They were the pick of a string of great saves that prevented a rampant Wanderers from taking the lead, but it was Watford who broke the deadlock just after half time.

A perfect cross by Kiko Feminia, who has spells with Real Madrid and Barcelona on his CV, was met by Senegal international Ismaila Sarr and his firm header gave Watford the lead against the run of play.

The goal might have knocked the stuffing out of Wanderers after they had played so well, but they roared back with an equaliser just 14 minutes later.

Predictably, it came from a Joe Jacobson corner that was met by Anthony Stewart, and even Foster was unable to stop the defender’s superb header from flying into the net.

But the Watford ‘keeper had a big let off when Jacobson swung in another of his devastating corners as the game moved into stoppage time.

Distracted by Wycombe substitute Alex Samuel, Foster appeared to punch the ball into his own net to give Wanderers a famous victory, but referee John Brooks disallowed the goal for obstruction by Samuel.

It was an unlucky ending to a great night for Gareth Ainsworth’s team and if they can follow it up with their first win when Sheffield Wednesday visit Adams Park on Saturday, this will go down as the week they truly ‘arrived’ as a Championship outfit.
