Aaron Pierre An Aaron Pierre goal on 64 minutes was enough for Wanderers to win on the road again as Dagenham & Redbridge were beaten 1-0. Wycombe are now seven points clear of 4th placed Bury whose home game with Southend was abandoned after just ten minutes due to a waterlogged pitch.

Wycombe's eighth game without defeat came after Gareth Ainsworth made one change to the starting XI that beaten Luton Town in the week - Matt McClure returning up front in favour of Fred Onyedinma who was dropped to the bench. However, after a fairly uneventful first hour of the match, it was Onyedinma's introduction for McClure on 58 minutes that preceeded the pressure that led to Wycombe's winning goal. Three corners in quick succession culminated in Pierre stabbing home a loose ball to delight the travelling support.

Wycombe had chances to add more but had to be grateful for 'old boy' Jamie Cureton missing a golden opportunity to equalise on 87 minutes when he was one-on-one with Matt Ingram but then contrived to miss the target from just over six yards.

Post match reaction:
Gareth Ainsworth Commenting after the game, Gareth Ainsworth said, ""I think we deserved the win. The shot count and the possession stats will say that. We didn't get troubled too much by Dagenham. To come away with the three points is fantastic. I'm not going to think it's Wycombe Wanderers' year until I know the final table. There's still no pressure. They were tired today, which showed. That gives me a little heads up for the Easter programme. It was a tough, tough game today. They're still going to turn teams over here and I'm glad we weren't one of them. To take as many points as we can over the Easter period is the intention, and we'll see where we are."
