Wycombe winger David Wheeler believes that the Chairboys’ victory against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday ‘had been coming’.

The 30-year-old scored the winner against the Owls which secured Wycombe’s first-ever victory as a Championship club, in a 1-0 win over Garry Monk’s men.

Wheeler’s goal came a day after he helped school children within the town receive free meals, following the Government’s decision to not extend the notion during the holidays.

Speaking to the club after the victory, he said: “I’m really chuffed.

“It was one of them [the goal] when time stood still a bit, but I'm happy.

“The lads really put in a great defensive performance in the last half-hour.”

Leading the team on the touchline was the club’s assistant manager, Richard Dobson, after Wycombe confirmed that Gareth Ainsworth had surgery on a back problem on Friday.

And despite the gaffer not being present at Adams Park, Wycombe managed to seal their first league win since the 3-1 triumph against Tranmere Rovers on February 22.

Wheeler continued: “The preparation was the same.

“We missed the gaffer’s energy and what he brings, but we stuck to the plan and it is one of those where you need to be consistent with what you do.

“I think it [the win] has been coming over the last two to three games.

"Some decisions have gone against us and today [October 31] we defended so well and we deserved the win.

Prior to Saturday’s victory over Sheffield Wednesday, their first win over the Owls in their history at the fifth attempt of facing the team from Yorkshire, Wheeler had been helping school children in the town.

He did this by suggesting that the club were to offer their services by giving free meals to those who were still at school.

This led the club to give away 250 meals to children on October 29 and October 30 at Adams Park.

The former QPR and Exeter man said: “I played a very small part.

“The suggestion was from me, but the majority was from Rob [Couhig], people from the community who were working in the kitchen, the supermarkets offering food and from local restaurants offering their services.

“There has been so much work into it, that I played such a small part.

“They all need recognition as well.

“If I can use the small platform that I have, then that is great.”

“I am very proud of Wycombe.

“Football clubs play a huge part in their community and if we could do more to help out, we will do.”
