Football League Two

Leon Johnson - late equaliser versus Scunthorpe Wycombe grabbed a stoppage time equaliser for the second League game running as they drew 1-1 with Scunthorpe United at Adams Park. This time it was Leon Johnson who headed home in the sixth minute of added time to cancel out Deon Burton's strike a few minutes into the second-half. After conceeding, it got worse for Wycombe when Josh Scowen contrived to get himself sent off after picking up two yellow cards in the space of three minutes for two reckless challenges. Matt Ingram pulled off a series of class saves to keep Wycombe in the game before Johnson powered in his late header.

The result came after Gareth Ainsworth made four changes to the side that had lost to Preston in the FA Cup the previous Saturday - Nick Arnold came in for the suspended Marvin McCoy and Leon Johnson replaced the injured Charles Dunne with Kortney Hause switching to left-back. The other two changes saw Sam Wood and Steven Craig replacing Billy Knott and Dean Morgan. The draw leaves Wanderers 15th in the table with 24 points from their opening 20 games.

Post match reaction:
Gareth Ainsworth Commenting after the game, Gareth Ainsworth said, "I thought the lads deserved it (the draw), ten men worked really hard to get something at the end and chucked everything forward. Josh Scowen's red card, I've had a right go at him. I think it's reckless, I think he's stupid getting sent off, and he knows it. He's down, but he'll learn from that. It feels like a win, but I'm angry because we had chances in the first half and didn't convert, and just a couple of bad decisions. Two big players injured and a suspension. But this is football and I love my job. I'll be in on Monday morning trying to try out how I'm going to do things against Northampton "
