Wycombe left-back Joe Jacobson believes his side’s 4-1 win over Preston North End in the FA Cup was the first match this season that ‘everything fell into place’.

Goals from Fred Onyedinma, a Jacobson penalty, Josh Knight and an Alex Samuel strike sent Wanderers through into the fourth round of the competition for the first time in four seasons, and for only the third time in the club’s history.

It was without a doubt the Chairboys’ best display so far this campaign, as Wanderers were 3-0 up by 30 minutes and easily could have been out of sight by half-time.

Speaking after the match, Jacobson said: “It is probably the first game of the season where everything has fallen into place for us, especially attacking wise.

“We probably haven’t created as many chances throughout the course of the season, so it was nice to get into that flow early on with a few good goals.

“We could have had more as we created a lot of chances as the confidence was so high from the first minute.

“The gaffer picked a strong team as he wanted to win the game and progress and as we haven’t won too many games this season.

“We wanted to get that confidence and it was nice to be in a position where we were a little bit comfortable and have that buffer.

“We have only won three games in the league this season so this is a huge boost for us and now if you look at the form table, we have won two of our last three games.

“A cup run could kick-start our season and we want to do that.”

The set-piece specialist was also full of praise for Wanderers striker Uche Ikpeazu, who won Wycombe’s ninth-minute penalty which was converted by Jacobson.

It was first time this season that the forward has started three consecutive matches, with the Ugandan striker causing the PNE backline numerous problems.

Jacobson continued: “I thought Big Uche was unplayable at times and Adi [Muskwe], looked like he had been with us for a long time, so it was a nice game to be involved in attacking wise.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t get that clean sheet that we have been desperate for, but it was a good win.”

Finally, the Welshman revealed that despite being the designated penalty taker for the club, Ikpeazu had asked the left-back if he was allowed to take the penalty.

Jacobson explained: “To be fair to him, he grabbed the ball and was like, ‘can I?’ but I said I take them and that was it - he wished me luck.

“I said to him that if I were to get another one in the game, he was able to have it and I am all for that.

“I am not that sort of player where I am like ‘I am the penalty taker - I am having it all the time’.

“In games, if the score line is a bit comfortable or if someone needs to complete a hat-trick then they can have it.

“I don’t have any qualms over that.

“He did so well to win the penalty that I did feel a bit bad, but thankfully it went in.”

The draw for the fourth round will be on Monday night with Wycombe being ball number 18.
