Fielding an unchanged line-up to the one that had defeated Lincoln City seven days previous, Wanderers went down 1-0 at second placed Darlington to remain 8th placed in the 'League Two' table. The only goal of the game came in the 77th minute strike when Pawel Abbott curled in a shot from the right channel following a pass from on loan Bradford City player Joe Colbeck.

Wanderers could have snatched a point with ten minutes remaining but Sergio Torres could only sidefoot a clear chance against the foot of the upright. Next game for Wanderers, home to Hereford on Tuesday 4th December.

A 39th minute goal from Scott McGleish proved to be just enough to see off ten-man bottom of the table Lincoln City at Adams Park on Saturday. The visitors had been reduced to ten men in the 27th minute when Oliver Ryan's lunge on the returning Will Antwi was enough for referee Graham Salisbury to produce a straight red. After Martin Bullock had struck a shot againt the crossbar, Wanderers eventually took the lead when Gary Holt's ball from the right was converted with ease by McGleish. Wanderers continued to dominate for the vast majority of the game but were denied again by the woodwork in the second period when Sergio Torres's shot cannoned off the foot of the right hand upright on 70 minutes. The Imps had a brief spell where they could have snatched a point but poor finishing confirmed one of the reasons why they are rooted to the foot of the table. Wanderers jump to 8th in table, four points away from the automatic promotion spots. Next game at Darlington on Saturday 24th November. Wycombe: Fielding, Martin, Johnson, Antwi, Stockley, Bullock, Holt, Torres, Oakes (sub 87 Boucaud), McGleish (sub 82 Sutton), Bloomfield - subs not used: Douglas, Woodman, Reid - Att: 4,297 (away end 288)

Wanderers will travel to Didcot Town in the next round on Tuesday 15th January 2008. Wycombe: Reading, Rice, Christon, Cadmore, Crooks, Phillips, Boucaud, Doherty (sub 75 Shulton), Duncan, Sutton, Reid - subs not used: Ellams, Savage, Ogbuagu, Botham - Att:100 (approx)

After announcing continuing losses in their annual accounts, the PLC's only option to progress now appears to be the previously talked up new stadium. Club Chairman Ivor Beeks said in his annual report, "Whilst the Board will continue to drive revenue opportunities and control costs at Adams Park, the long term solution to becoming financially self sufficient has to be the creation of a new stadium. This will provide the impetuous (sic) for larger attendances and higher revenues for both Wycombe Wanderers and London Wasps. Without achieving this goal it is unlikely that the ambitions of both Clubs and the local community in which they participate will be realised."

The PLC have announced a 700K loss for the 2006/7 season - a decrease of 1.2m compared to the previous season. However, the losses come despite benefitting 531K from the sale of Roger Johnson and Kevin Betsy, seeing an increase in matchday receipts, due to Wanderers run to the semi-final of The League Cup, by 364K to 1,584K and an increase in broadcast revenue from 98K to 230K. The main improvement financially came from reducing operating costs by 562K to 5,928K (particularly focused in the Catering dept.). However, Club MD Steve Hayes now has loans totalling 4,086K, while fellow Director Brian Kane's wife advanced the company 500K during the season. The AGM is due to take place on Thursday 6th December 2007.

Wanderers went out of the FA Cup at home to Swindon Town on Saturday to complete a season of misery in all major cup competitions this season. A fairly even first half ended goalless against Swindon but the visitors got the breakthrough on 66 minutes when a mistake by Tom Williams let in Christian Roberts to score. Six minutes later it was 2-0 when Billy Paynter's shot from the edge of the box beat Frank Fielding in the Wycombe goal. Wanderers pulled a goal back on 83 minutes when Matt Bloomfield was credited in getting the final touch to a back pass that had looped over Swindon 'keeper Peter Brezovan. However, the goal did not provide the catalyst for a comeback and it will now be promotion or nothing for Paul Lambert's side this season. Wycombe: Fielding, Martin, Johnson, McCracken (sub 21 Stockley), Williams, Bullock (sub 67 Sutton), Bloomfield, Torres, Holt, Oakes, McGleish - subs not used: Douglas, Boucaud, Reid - Att: 3,332 (away end 841)
