24th September 2015 marked the third annivesary of Gareth Ainsworth being appointed as 'Caretaker' Manager of the Wanderers following the dismissal of Gary Waddock after the previous Saturday's home defeat to Wimbledon. The then 39 year old was appointed on a permanent basis a few weeks later on 8th November 2012. With three years service as Manager at Adams Park, Ainsworth had become the second longest serving Manager of Wycombe Wanderers as a Football League club, recently surpassing his predecessor Gary Waddock. Lawrie Sanchez has been the longest serving to date with four and half years at Adams Park. Martin O'Neill spent just over five years with the Wanderers but the first three and a half seasons were during the Club's Conference days.

'The Dubious Goals Committee' have ruled that Wanderers' goal scored at Leyton Orient on Saturday (19th September) should be credited to Gozie Ugwu and not Matt Bloomfield, as originally reported by the Press Association. A comment on the official website read: "DVD evidence was inconclusive as to who had the final touch of a mini-scramble in front of goal just before half-time, as Joe Jacobson's cross from the left resulted in the ball being turned home." The match report and statistics on have been updated to reflect this decision.

Wanderers came away from leaders Leyton Orient with a 1-1 draw but frustrated that they didn't grab all three points. Matt Bloomfield, making his first competitive appearance for Wycombe since the Play-Off Final defeat in May, was credited with the opener after getting the last touch on Gozie Ugwu's close range effort on 40 minutes. That goal was just reward for a positive Wycombe performance but The O's were allowed back in the game on 66 minutes when the home side broke following a Wycombe attack and Aaron Pierre and Sido Jombati both got tangled up trying to clear the loose ball before Jay Simpson smashed home from 12 yards. Wycombe remain 4th in the table ahead of next Saturday's visit to 9th placed Exeter City.
