WYCOMBE CLOSING IN ON PROMOTION
AS the season ticks into spring the only thing that matters when you’re battling at either end of the table is the result.
This was third hosting second but Shrewsbury are hitting a rocky patch at the wrong time and Wycombe saw the opportunity to pounce.
In fact, Sam Wood did just that after just 40 seconds as the hosts edged themselves closer to what seemed a near impossible promotion at the start of the season.
Unbeaten in five compares to just one win in as many games for the Shrews who were second best throughout, muster- ing only half chances all afternoon at Adams Park.
For Wycombe, consistency is king and consistency breeds results.
This will be 27 weeks inside the automatic promotion places for Gareth Ainsworth’s men and after this latest result it would take a brave man to bet against them staying there and avoiding the drama of the dreaded play-offs.
If they see it through, this will be an achievement for the ages.
