Wanderers took a one point lead at the top of 'League Two' after continuing their hugely impressive away form in 2014/15 with a 3-1 victory at bottom of the table Hartlepool United. Paris Cowan-Hall opened the scoring on 33 minutes before the hosts missed a chance to equalise five minutes later when Neil Austin blasted a penalty over. Two goals in three second half minutes from Matt Bloomfield and Alfie Mawson sealed the points for Wycombe before former Premier League player Marlon Harewood scored a late consolation for Pools - it was the first time this season that Wycombe had conceeded a goal after the 75th minute. Wycombe's seventh away win of the season is more than they achieved in the whole of the 2013/14 campaign and is currently the best away record amongst all Premier and Football League clubs.

Loan deadline day saw Wanderers confirm the signing of Millwall attacking midfielder Fred Onyedinma. The former Lions youth teamer, who turned 18 on 24 November 2014, caught the eye of Gareth Ainsworth when he played against the Wanderers in the second-half of the League Cup tie at The New Den in August 2014. He has joined Wycombe on a 'youth loan' running until 3rd January 2015 but he has not been given permission to play in the FA Cup. He made his First Team debut for Millwall in January 2014 and has since made a further eight appearances, the most recent as substitute in The Championship clash with Wigan Athletic on 21 October 2014.

The saga surrounding Wanderers defender Anthony Stewart has opened another chapter with the news that 'League One' strugglers Crewe Alexandra are close to reaching an agreement to sign the now 22 year old. The former Youth Teamer at Adams Park had been offered a new contract by The Wanderers at the end of the 2013/14 campaign but the player and his agent appeared to be holding out for a better deal elsewhere. The former Youth Teamer impressed for Wycombe since making his First Team debut in January 2012 - making 38 appearances last season and scoring four times before turning down a new contract. He went on to score on trial for Crawley Town during pre-season but no deal was agreed and he has not played a competitive game since. He started training with Crewe during November and Alex boss Steve Davis, on the club's website, said: "He just wants to play again and we hope we can work something out to suit everyone. Wycombe are entitled to compensation and we respect that." It's since been speculated that Stewart could sign a temporary deal with Crewe before the 5pm Thursday (27th November) loan deadline. Wanderers are entitled to a transfer fee because the player is under 23. However, the compensation figure may need to be set by a tribunal who would calculate the annual training costs since the player joined Wycombe as a 1st Year scholar in the 2009/10 season.

Wanderers 'keeper Charlie Horlock has returned from his loan spell at Harrow Borough and immediately joined Southern League Hitchin Town on loan until 14th December 2014. The youngster, who rejoined Wanderers in the summer of 2013, was initially loaned to Harrow on a short term deal in August 2014. On 9th September 2014 the Club reported that the deal had been extended until the end of the 2014/15 season. However, after making 17 apps for the Isthmian League side, the return of former Boro 'keeper Nicky Jupp to Earlsmead in October 2014 saw Horlock relegated to the bench and the lack of First Team opportunties appears to be the reason for his switch to Hitchin.

It was confirmed on Monday that Rotherham midfielder Nicky Walker had returned to his parent club following the end of his three month loan from the 'League One' club. Walker, who celebrated his 20th birthday while at Wycombe, failed to make a First Team appearance for the Wanderers, his solitary appearance coming when he played the first half of the pre-season friendly at Barnet. Walker, commenting on Twitter, said: "I would just like to thank everyone at Wycombe for the past three months. Although I'm disappointed not to get the game time, it's been a great experience and I wish them the best of luck for the season (hopefully promotion). A really great club throughout and are definitely heading in the right direction. They're a great group of lads and I know I have left with my head held high giving it everything I had."

Wanderers returned to the top of 'League Two' after coming from behind to beat Oxford United 2-1 at The Kassam Stadium - the home side missing a 90th minute penalty that would have seen them take a share of the spoils. Paul Hayes and Peter Murphy got the Wycombe goals at the start of the second-half after Danny Hylton had given the home side the lead from the spot in the 37th minute. However, it was Hylton who blasted over in the final minute to delight the 1,700 contingent supporting the Wanderers.
