Wycombe Wanderers’ three-game winning run ended as they lost 3-1 at home to soon-to-be-promoted, Portsmouth.

Pompey, who have former Chairboy John Mousinho in charge, took an early lead at Adams Park when Abu Kamara's cross was swept in by Colby Bishop, via a huge deflection of Ryan Tafazolli.

It was his 17th strike of the season.

But the lead didn’t last long as Wycombe equalised just three minutes later.

Richard Kone, who was making his first league start since the 1-0 away defeat at Stevenage in February, played a brilliant one-two with Matt Butcher as the latter placed his first-time attempt beyond Will Norris.

It was a well-taken goal from the ex-Plymouth Argyle man as he made it three goals in two appearances at Adams Park.

After a chaotic opening, the first period mellowed down as both sides enjoyed large chunks of the ball.

For Portsmouth, Paddy Lane, Marlon Park, Sean Raggett, and Kamara all went close, but Franco Ravizzoli in the Chairboys goal was on hand to thwart any attempt that came his way.

But he was beaten for a second time on 28 minutes, when Bishop swept in another Kamara cross.

It was a near-carbon copy of their opener in terms of the build-up play.

Wycombe also had chances to take the lead as Kieran Sadlier, Bez Lubala and Kone tried their luck but to no avail.

Wanderers started the second period strongly as Kone made his presence known in the Pompey box, whilst Josh Scowen fired wide and Luke Leahy’s free-kick smashed the crossbar.

The introductions of Dale Taylor, Sam Vokes and Chem Campbell tried to break down the well-resolute Pompey defence, but the league leader’s quality shone through in the latter stages of the contest, as they wrapped up the win with a third.

After some terrible defending at the back, Christian Saydee was on hand to fire home from close range for his fourth of the campaign.

Wycombe remain 13th and face Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Easter Monday.
