Accrington Stanley 1-1 Wycombe: Match Report

17 Mar

Garry Thompson earns Wycombe a point at Accrington

Wycombe moved into the play-off places thanks to Garry Thompson’s goal in their 1-1 draw with promotion rivals Accrington.

Thompson levelled the scores in the 62nd minute, pouncing on a loose ball in the area and driving it home from 12 yards.

This was after Shay McCartan had opened the scoring for fifth-placed Stanley in time added on at the end of the first half.

In a first half of few chances, the game came to life when Billy Kee fed McCartan and, with Wycombe appealing for offside, the striker raced into the area and fired the ball into the bottom corner.

Stanley, who still hope to secure a top-three place, had chances to increase their lead after the break but Kee was denied by goalkeeper Ryan Allsop before Thompson pounced.

The game could have then gone either way, with Allsop denying Sean McConville and Piero Mingoia a Stanley winner while Wycombe’s Paul Hayes was kept out by Ross Etheridge at the other end.
