Wycombe 2, Morecambe 0.

WYCOMBE bounced back from last week's record 6-0 defeat at Stockport with a thoroughly-deserved victory over Morecambe.

Goals from strikers Scott McGliesh and John Sutton put Blues back on track and erased the memory of last week's caning.

Wanderers boss Paul Lambert had asked his shell-shocked for a response and they did it in style with a classy performance laced with a goal apiece from both of their strikers.

They took just 19 minutes to get Saturday's Edgeley Park embarrassment out of their system.

McGleish rose highest to plant Russell Martin's deep cross beyond the reach of visiting keeper Joe Lewis.

And it was no less than Lambert's team deserved. They opened with purpose, pace and passion against the team who began the day one place above them in the table.

At times it was as though they had the ball attached to a piece of string as they dominated the first half and the only concern was that it took them until the 68th minute to get a second goal when Sutton took one touch to control the ball in the box before blasting home a shot that threatened to rip the net from the goal frame.

Sutton, who had enjoyed his best night in Blues colours, celebrated with relish and his and the team's relief was felt all around the ground.

But the victory could have been even more emphatic. Twice Wanderers were denied by the woodwork in the second half with McGliesh and fit again skipper David McCracken the unlucky men.

Sutton also speared one into the side netting when well-placed while Matt Bloomfield sidefooted a shot straight in the keeper's arms while Gary Holt's effort also only succeeded in finding the keeper's gloves after another typically long-busting run from the midfielder.

The combined energy of McGliesh, Torres, Bloomfield and Gary Holt ensured that Wycombe stayed on top and although Frank Fielding in the home goal did have to frantically back-pedal to tip Carl Baker's first half lob over his crossbar, Wycombe were full value for the three points.
