EYEING THE HOTSEAT
Newport see off the Chairboys
on target shortly as the break, poking a long ball straight at Day as Wycombe looked to get themselves back into the contest.
And it wasn’t long before they were level.
The impressive Onyedinma slotted home from close-range on 55 minutes after Day had spilled Sam Wood’s 25-yard drive, and the hosts were back in the game.
Wycombe were in the ascendency and Alfie Mawson should have put the hosts in front on 65 minutes, but his header from Joe Jacobson’s cross was scrambled behind by Day.
But it was Newport who were to win it against the run of play.
Klukowski finished well after Ismail Yakubu neatly squared Byrne’s over-hit freekick.
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth wasn’t happy with the refereeing for the winner but was in philosophical mood despite suffering two defeats this week.
“It was a sucker punch to concede when we did in the second half,” said Ainsworth.
“I don’t know how the referee has given the foul in the build-up. He’s been conned in my opinion.
“The boys are down but it’s individual errors and set-plays costing us – it’s not like teams are tearing us apart like last season.
“We’ve lost two games but we’re still in the top three so that shows how good the boys have been all season.
“We deserved something but when you don’t stick your chances away you don’t pick up points.
“Scoring has been an issue of late.
“That may coincide with Paul Hayes being out but he’s made an appearance so he’ll be big for us when he returns fully fit.”
