The FA have rejected the Club's appeal against the red card shown to Matt McClure in the 2-1 win at Tranmere Rovers. The news was received at around 4pm on Thursday afternoon and will mean that McClure will now face the statutory automatic three match ban for violent conduct. The speed of McClure's sending-off has stirred several comments in the media. The time between the player entering the pitch and being red-carded was around 70 seconds but the time from when the ball entered play and McClure's challenge on Adam Dugdale was clocked at just shy of 4 seconds. The red-card is Wanderers' first of the season, compared to nine in the whole of the previous season.

The Club announced on Wednesday afternoon that they had appealled to the FA against the red card shown to Matt McClure in the 2-1 win at Tranmere Rovers the previous evening. A statement on the official website read: "Having reviewed footage of the incident, particularly in comparison to similar challenges which went unpunished by the referee, the Club feel the decision to issue a red card was unfair and have therefore submitted a case for the Football Association to consider."

Wanderers made it ten wins on the road in the League during 2014/15 following a hard fought 2-1 victory at Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday evening. However, Wanderers finished the game with ten players after substitute Matt McClure was red-carded on 69 minutes for an alleged elbow on Tranmere's Adam Dugdale. McClure had only been on the pitch for around a minute having replaced Sam Saunders in an unchanged starting Wycombe XI. Wycombe remain third in table, with Shrewsbury the new leaders after a late goal saw them beat Accrington Stanley and jump ahead of Burton who were without a game. 4th placed Luton lost 1-0 at Bury (who are now 5th). The Hatters are now five points behind Wanderers.
