It was his first goal of the season and his first since getting the fourth in Wycombe’s 4-1 win against Fleetwood Town at Highbury Stadium, in their successful play-off campaign last July.

It was also his first goal at Adams Park since netting in the 2-1 win against Blackpool in January last year in League One.

Speaking after the match, he said: “Scoring meant the world to me – it was great.

“It has been a frustrating couple of months, so to get my chance and to put the ball in the net really meant a lot as you can most probably see from my celebration.

“We said before the game that every game is pivotal as it can start a bit of momentum and like with the result today, it just lifts the whole mood.

“It spurges us on and it puts us in a positive headspace for the league.

“These games are massive so I am sure this will kick start our season.”

Finally, Samuel was full of praise for his strike partner Uche Ikpeazu.

The Ugandan forward had another stellar display and won Wanderers a penalty which was converted by Joe Jacobson.

He continued: “Uche has been brilliant since coming in.

“His hold-up play has been amazing, his goal against Middlesbrough was fantastic and he won us the penalty today.
