WYCOMBE 1 SHEFFIELD WEDS 0
(Saturday 31st October 2020)
A first half stoppage time header from David Wheeler was enough to see Wanderers earn their first ever Championship victory - overcoming Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Adams Park. The result came with an unchaged staring XI for Wycombe from the one that had drawn midweek to Watford but who saw Richard Dobson take on the caretaker Manager role after Gareth Ainsworth was ruled out from attending due to recovering from a back operation. The decisive goal came following another assist from a Joe Jacobson corner. The result leaves Wycombe on 4 points from their opening 9 Championship games and sitting one place above bottom placed Wednesday who have minus 4 points following their 12 point deduction at the start of the season.
Wycombe: Allsop, Grimmer, Jacobson, Stewart, Wheeler (sub 71 Onyedinma), Kashket, Knight, Horgan, Thompson, Akinfenwa (sub 72 Ikpeazu), Adeniran (sub 55 Bloomfield) – subs not used: Stockdale, Samuel, Mehmeti, Tafazolli

WYCOMBE 1 WATFORD 1
(Tuesday 27th October 2020)
Wanderers finally recorded their first ever Championship point with a deserved 1-1 draw with Watford in the live Sky Sports game at Adams Park. Ismaila Sarr had headed the visitors into the lead against the run of play seven minutes into the second period, but the point was earned when Anthony Stewart headed home Joe Jacobson's corner on 66 minutes. Wycombe, captained by Adebayo Akinfenwa and making his first start of the season, were then denied a late winner when Alex Samuel was adjudged to have fouled Watford 'keeper Ben Foster who had deflected Jacobson's corner into his own net.

IKPEAZU UGANDA CALL-UP
(Monday 26th October 2020)
News came through on Monday 26th October 2020 that Wanderers striker Uche Ikpeazu had been called up for the Ugandan international side for their forthcoming coming international games with South Sudan on 12th and 16th November 2020. Ikpeazu is waiting his Uganda debut having previously been called up for the March 2020 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games but those fixtures were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
RECORD RUN OF LEAGUE DEFEATS
(Saturday 24th October 2020)
Wycombe's defeat at Norwich was their seventh straight League loss and is now the worse run of consecutive League defeats for the Wanderers in their Football League history - surpassing the run of six consecutive losses in League Two during the tail end of the 2005/6 season.
NORWICH 2 WYCOMBE 1
(Saturday 24th October 2020)
A hugely disputed stoppage-time free-kick netted by Mario Vrancic saw Wycombe fall to a cruel 2-1 defeat at Norwich City. The seventh straight League defeat came after Wanderers had conceeded a third minute goal from Teemu Pukki following a slip by Ryan Allsop in the Wycombe goal. It looked ominous then for Gareth Ainsworth's side but an equaliser by Scott Kashket on 12 minutes followed by an encourging rear-guard action looked to have been enough to earn a first point at this level. However, Fred Onyedinma was adjudged to have tripped Vrancic on the edge of the box in the first minute of stoppage time at the end of the 90 and the same player stepped up to steal all three points for the former Premier League side. City's Adam Idah was red-carded in the fifth minute of stoppage-time for rasing his arms at Joe Jacobson.
Wycombe: Allsop, Grimmer, Jacobson, Stewart, Knight, Adeniran, Thompson, Wheeler (sub 90+3 Akinfenwa), Onyedinma, Horgan (sub 84 Bloomfield), Kashket (sub 69 Ikpeazu) - subs: Stockdale, Phillips, Samuel, Mehmeti

READING 1 WYCOMBE 0
(Tuesday 20th October 2020)
Wycombe lost for a sixth consecutive time in the Championship after Reading scored with their only shot target throughout the 90 minutes. Wanderers had more than held their own in the opening hour before Lucas Joao's spark of individual brilliance saw him net the only goal of the evening on 63 minutes. Substitute Fred Onyedinma came closest to equalising for Wycombe during stoppage time. Wycombe now face relegated Premier League sides Norwich City and Watford in their next two Championship games.

WYCOMBE 1 MILLWALL 2
(Saturday 17th October 2020)
Wanderers bagged their first Championship goal with a scrappy effort from Scott Kashket on 9 minutes but still ended up as the losing side as Millwall left Adams Park with a 2-1 victory. Kashket forced the ball home after an error by Millwall 'keeper Bartosz Bialkowksi but the visitors eventally hit back with a Jed Wallace penalty on 48 minutes after Matt Smith had been adjudged to have been pushed over. Wycombe then controversially saw a 'goal' ruled out when Joe Jacobson's corner went straight in at the far post but the effort was ruled out for what was believed to be an infringement on Bialkowksi. That decision was made to look even worse for Wanderers when Ryan Leonard struck home from the edge of the box on 63 minutes for the winner. Wycombe included new signing Josh Knight in their starting line-up, while 38-year-old Adebayo Akinfenwa was given his Championship debuts as a second-half substitute, along with 19-year-old Anis Mehmeti making his Wanderers debut.
Wycombe: Allsop, Grimmer, Jacobson, Stewart, Wheeler, Kashket, Knight, Thompson, Onyedinma (sub 66 Horgan), Adeniran (sub 77 Mehmeti), Samuel (sub 64 Akinfenwa) – subs not used: Stockdale, Bloomfield, Charles, Freeman

HORGAN GETS IRELAND CALL-UP

News came through on Friday 9th October 2020 that Wanderer' striker Daryl Horgan had been called into the Republic of Ireland squad for their UEFA Nations League matches with Wales (Sunday 11th October) and Finland (Wednesday 14th October). Horgan subsequently came on substitute during the meeting with Wales and thus become the first Wycombe player to gain a full international cap since Aaron Pierre appeared for Grenada in 2015. The Irishman then gained a further cap after starting for Ireland in their game away to Finland on 2020.
20th ANNIVERSARY OF LIONEL'S VISIT
(Tuesday 6th October 2020)
The 6th October 2020 marked the 20th anniversary of BBC Watchdog broadcasting live from Adams Park prior to Wycombe Wanderers' home Football League meeting with Notts County. @GasmanCOTN took to Twitter to remind all of the occasion when Lionel Richie sang in the Woodlands Lounge.

(Monday 5th October 2020)
The club confirmed on Monday 5th October 2020 the signing of 23-year-old Josh Knight on loan from Leicester City until 3rd January 2021. Knight had spent the 2019/20 on loan in League One with Peterborough United – scoring against Wanderers in the 3-3 draw at Adams Park exactly a year previous. He was allocated the No.12 in the Wycombe squad.
LUTON 2 WYCOMBE 0
(Saturday 3rd October 2020)
There was still no joy for Wanderers on their Championship debut as second-half goals conceded at Luton Town saw a 2-0 defeat. Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu curled in the opener on 59 minutes but Wycombe survived further damage and thought they had grabbed an equaliser on 87 minutes – but Scott Kashket’s effort was ruled out for a marginal offside. Elliot Lee sealed victory for the hosts two minutes later with a tap-in from Kazenga LuaLua's assist.
Wycombe: Allsop, Grimmer, Jacobson, Stewart, Horgan (sub 69 Parker), Thompson, Charles, Freeman, Wheeler (sub 61 Onyedinma), Adenerin, Samuel (sub 64 Kashket) – subs not used: Stockdale, Bloomfield, Phillips, McCarthy

FOUR TRIALISTS SIGNED UP
(Tuesday 29th September 2020)
The Club confirmed on 29th September 2020 that four of the trialists that played in the game at Chesham United on Friday 11th September had signed deals with Wycombe. They were: Andre Burley, Andron Georgiou, Malachi Linton and Anis Mehmeti. Gareth Ainsworth commented: “It’s a big step for the club, bringing in these potential hidden gems who have not quite worked out elsewhere but we believe have what it takes to kick on and provide real competition for places in the first team further down the track.” All four players are believed to have a signed a one-year deal with the Club having the option to extend by a year at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
WYCOMBE 0 SWANSEA 2
(Saturday 26th September 2020)
Wanderers suffered a third consecutive defeat at the start of their debut season in Championship and have still yet to score after going down 2-0 to Swansea City at Adams Park. The damage was done in the opening 23 minutes after Andre Ayew slid in to put Swansea in front before Jamal Lowe doubled the lead with another close-range finish. Wycombe came more into the game during the second-period but despite an encouraging display by substitute Daryl Horgan, Freddie Woodman in The Swans goal was rarely tested.
Wycombe: Allsop, Grimmer, Stewart, Tafazolli, Wheeler (sub 83 Kashket), Bloomfield (sub 76 Parker), Freeman, Onyedinma (sub 69 Horgan), Adeniran, Samuel, McCarthy – subs not used: Stockdale, Jacobson, Phillips, Thompson

EVERTON MIDFIELDER ON LOAN
(Friday 25th September 2020)
News sources in the Merseyside area on 24th September 2020 linked Wycombe with a move to sign Everton 21-year-old midfielder Dennis Adeniran on a season-long loan deal. Adeniran is a former England U17, 18 and 19 international with five previous senior apps with Fulham, plus eight with Everton (all Football League Trophy). The Club confirmed the deal on 25th September 2020, with the player being allocated No.24 in the Wanderers squad.
BLACKBURN R 5 WYCOMBE 0
(Saturday 19th September 2020)
Wanderers were completely outclassed in their first ever away game in the Championship, losing 5-0 at Blackburn Rovers in what was also Wycombe’s first ever trip to Ewood Park. Wycombe, fielding an unchanged starting XI to the one that had lost to Rotherham the previous Saturday, found themselves a goal down on 16 minutes when Tyrhys Dolan was brought down in the penalty area by Matt Bloomfield and Adam Armstrong netted from the resulting spot-kick. Four minutes later it was 2-0 when Dolan scored with a follow-up. Armstrong tapped home on 33 minutes to make it three before Wycombe’s day got worse 12 minutes into the second-half when Darius Charles was shown a straight red-card for denying goal scoring opportunity when fouling Armstrong.
Gareth Ainsworth introduced centre-back Ryan Tafazolli and striker Uche Ikpeazu for their Wycombe debuts shortly afterwards but it was the home side who added to the score with a close range effort from Derrick Williams on 67 minutes, before Armstrong completed his hat-trick with seven minutes remaining on the clock. A baptism of fire for Wycombe who managed just a single shot on target compared to Rovers sixteen.
Wycombe: Allsop, Grimmer, Jacobson, Stewart, Charles, Pattison, Bloomfield (sub 63 Ikpeazu), Kashket (sub 58 Taffazoli), Horgan, Wheeler, Onyedinma (sub 77 Freeman) – subs not used: Stockdale, Samuel, Parker, McCarthy

The shirt was revealed during the League Cup tie at Brentford when Wycombe Finance Director Pete Couhig was seen wearing the shirt at the ground, along with representatives of shirt sponsors Cherry Red records. A red and white quartered shirt design was made famous during Wanderers' run to the FA Cup Semi-Final in 2001.
OUT OF LEAGUE CUP ON PENS
(Sunday 6th September 2020)
Wanderers were eliminated on spot-kicks in their League Cup 1st Round tie at Brentford. In the first competitive game at The Bees new stadium, a Pinnock header on 32 minutes gave the home side the lead but Wycombe substitute Daryl Horgan leveled on 76 minute despite Gareth Ainsworth’s side being reduced to 10 men after Gape had been red carded three minutes into the second-half for dangerous play.
The tie went straight to a spot-kick shot-out with scores level at 1-2 on 90 minutes but after Nick Freeman blasted over and Scott Kashket saw his effort saved, Marcus Forss netted the winner for Brentford. Joe Jacobson and Horgan were the scorers from spot on a day that Wycombe could have won in the closing stages when Fred Onyedinma went close.

(Wednesday 2nd September 2020)

The 28-year-old joins on a two-year deal for ‘undisclosed fee’. He had previously spent three years in League One with Peterborough United. Gareth Ainsworth commented: “We’ve come up against Ryan many times down the years and he’s always been a strong, commanding presence in any defence we’ve faced, and also a real threat from our set-pieces with his height and heading ability. “Our defence was the bedrock for our success last season and he’ll add real competition for places and give us another option with lots of games coming thick and fast. I’ve been working hard all summer on bringing Ryan to the club and I’m delighted it’s paid off.”

HORGAN IS SIGNING#5
(Wednesday 2nd September 2020)
Daryl Horgan was confirmed as Wanderers' fifth signing of the close season on 2nd September 2020 after signing a two-year deal from Hibernian. No fee was mentioned by either club but the 28-year-old winger was contracted with Hibs until 2021, so a fee is likely. He was allocated the No.17 shirt in the Wanderers squad. Gareth Ainsworth commented: “Daryl is someone we’ve kept an eye on ever since he put in that outstanding performance against us and we believe he’s ideally suited to the way we play. He’s quick, he’s direct, he loves to run at the defence and he’s got a strong goal threat in terms of scoring and creating chances for his team-mates.”

The Club confirmed the signing of Curtis Anderson on 2nd September 2020 on a one year deal. The 19-year-old ‘keeper became the fourth signing of the close season for Wanderers.
