Wycombe defender Joe Jacobson has revealed that he was more ‘pleased’ with his goal line clearance than his actual equaliser in the 3-3 draw against Sunderland.

The Welshman bundled in a last minute strike to rescue a point for the Chairboys against the Black Cats at Adams Park, but, when the score was level at 2-2, Jacobson produced a brilliant goal line clearance to deny Ross Stewart what looked like to be a certain goal.

After David Stockdale parried an Alex Pritchard shot, Stewart’s diving header from the rebound looked certain for the net, but, Jacobson’s reflexes saw him hook the ball away from danger whilst producing a scissor kick.

On the incredible climax in Saturday’s lunchtime fixture, he said: “I was like a prime Kevin Nolan trying to be a poacher in the box, and did you know, I only went in to try and block Ross Stewart from getting a clean header on the ball.

“Chris [Forino] has produced a great header from the set piece, it fell to me and I kind of tackled the ball in with my right foot which is a strange thing in itself but I’d take in.”

On the clearance, he said: “It is something that we work on.

“The gaffer has always said to follow up on shots both attacking and defensively, and as soon as the shot came in and the rebound came in from Ross Stewart, I thought I’d try and help out and it was one of those where I kind of gambled it because if it heads it the other way, it’s a goal.

“But I managed to get my boot on it to go over and in a way, I’m more pleased with that than the actual goal because that’s something we work in training as a defender.”

It was Jacobson’s fifth goal of the season.
