Wycombe Wanderers 0
Hartlepool United 1
Saturday 14th April 2007
Football League Two
Wanderers lost 1-0 at Adams Park as Hartlepool United clinched a return to 'League One' after just a one year absence. The visitors only needed a point to confirm their promotion place, but they got all three as Wycombe’s winless run was extended to eight games. The only goal of the game came on 81 minutes when Richard Barker headed home an Andy Monkhouse cross from the left.
Wycombe's League season is now quickly falling flat and was not helped by the loss of Tommy Doherty due to an injury picked up through a first half clash with teammate Lewis Christon. Doherty was returning after a two-match ban. It got worse when Christon was stretchered off himself after colliding with a post while making a second half goal-line clearance. Christon's departure saw Tommy Mooney switch to a temporary centre-half role and it coincided with Pool's winner.
Wycombe's best chances came earlier in the second-half through former Pools striker Jermaine Easter. He skewed an effort wide after Mooney had set hime up, and then had a second saved by visiting keeper Dimi Konstantopolous after more good work from Mooney and a clever Matt Bloomfield dummy. The Welsh international also found himself bearing down on goal again when he collected a long diagonal ball from Anthony Grant but again he could not provide the finish. The result leaves Wycombe one place below the play-off spots and probably needing to win all three of their remaining games to have any chance of making the end of season bun fight.
