Huddersfield Town v Wycombe programme August 1994 Wycombe's first ever meeting with The Terriers back in 1994 was significant for the fact that it was the first ever game at The McAlpine Stadium.
The all-ticket gate of over 13,000 saw the local side frustrated by a well organised Wycombe side. Simon Garner should have given Wycombe the lead in the 29th minute when clean through on goal but the ex-Blackburn hero made no mistake from the edge of the box four minutes before the break.
That strike proved to be the winning goal with Andy Booth going closest for the home side with a free header in the 69th minute. A bad day for Town and their fiery Manager Neil Warnock was completed in the dying moments when defender Pat Scully was sent off for a second bookable offence.
Wycombe: Hyde, Cousins, Creaser, Evans, Brown, Carroll, Stapleton, Ryan, Thompson, Regis, Garner (sub 86 Hemmings)
Huddersfield Francis, Billy, Mitchell, Scully, Cowan, Baldry (sub 62 Dunn), Bullock, Reid, Starbuck, Booth, Jepson

Just to prove that the result was no fluke, Wycombe beat Huddersfield 2-1 at Adams Park four months later in one of the most memorable League games ever at Adams Park. Huddersfield were leading 1-0 through a Ronnie Jepson goal before Gary Patterson was sent-off on his Wycombe debut for a second bookable offence. The dismissal lifted Wycombe and a goal from Terry Evans following a Dave Carroll cross from the right and then a strike from Garner while everybody was ball watching, capped an excellent double over a side that eventually clinched promotion via the play-offs.
