Wycombe Wanderers claimed three vital points against Cheltenham Town following a 3-1 at the Completely Suzuki Stadium.

The win was Wycombe’s first away from home in the league since October, following this well-documented run of poor form.

First-half goals from the skipper Jack Grimmer and Garath McCleary set the tone for Wanderers, in a classic away day performance.

Wanderers rode their luck in the early stages, a bright start from the hosts caught their visitors off guard, although there were no clear-cut chances to report.

Jack Grimmer’s opener came from Wycombe’s first real period of sustained pressure.

Luke Leahy’s corner was flicked on towards the back post, and the Scotsman had the simple task of bundling the ball home.

Garath McCleary’s strike to double the lead was vintage, as a neat interchange with Sam Vokes on the halfway line gave the Jamaican a clear run at goal, albeit fifty yards. Fine finishing, hard and low, gave Luke Southwood no chance.

Wycombe were comfortable up until the halftime break, though Cheltenham squirmed a big chance just before the interval, Elliot Bonds put the ball on a plate for Aidan Keena, but his effort rolled comfortably into Max Stryjek’s hands.

The third came within four minutes of the restart.

McCleary’s penalty was comfortably saved by Southwood, only for Freddie Potts’ ball across the box on the rebound to be steered into his own net by Curtis Davies.

Matty Taylor scored his first Robins goal on his debut moments after the penalty to quickly push Wycombe back to a two-goal lead.

Wycombe missed big chances to kill the game off, with two of them coming through veteran striker Sam Vokes.

Cheltenham threw the kitchen sink at Wycombe in the closing stages, only for the imperious Joe Low and co to stand firm and see the game out for an invaluable three points.

Wycombe face promotion chasers Peterborough United next in league action.
