For a 0-0 draw it was a lively game at Stevenage.

Personally, I thought Wanderers deserved all three points thanks to their excellent second half display at the Lamex Stadium.
Bayo hit the post with a fantastic header with a few minutes to go and Scott Brown saw his effort hacked away just in time.

There has been plenty of chatter around Scott’s ‘goal’. Did it cross the line? Some angles look as though it did but  to be fair the linesman would have had no time to spot that and gave the benefit of the doubt to Stevenage.

Speaking afterwards, both Gareth and Scott backed the officials saying it was a difficult job and preferred to reflect in what was a very solid display.

It was certainly more like the Wycombe we are used to seeing on the road. After three straight defeats, a performance like that away from home against a side boasting such a dangerous attack is a very good point and after their 3-0 loss their last season it was good to see the players banish those memories.

Another real positive for the Chairboys was the return of Nathan Tyson, who came off the bench for the last 30 minutes.

He looked very lively and caused the Boro defence real issues with his pace and power. He was also unlucky to not get on the scoresheet with a header and it was great to see him looking so lively.

It is fantastic for the Blues to see the players of Nathan’s calibre back and looking hungry. The next player to return is likely to be Scott Kashket.

The Chairboys have an embarrassment of riches in the striking department and with the likes of Tys and Scott back in contention that will surely serve as a word of warning to the rest of the division.

Akinfenwa, Mackail-Smith, Tyson, Kashket, Cowan-Hall, Freeman, Southwell and not forgetting Ebere Eze. The list is there for all to see and they all bring different attributes which poses defences real nightmares.

On to this weekend’s game and the Blues face a familiar foe in Chesterfield. Kashket, should he be back in the squad, will have good memories of the Spireites, having scored a sublime hat-trick in their 5-0 FA Cup win their last season.

Since that game, Chesterfield have been on a downward spiral. However, after finding themselves at the bottom of the league, new manager Jack Lester has galvanised them and in Kristian Dennis they have one of the division’s most in-form strikers.

It should be a great game and I am going for Wycombe to continue their superb home form, COYB!
