(Tuesday 22nd November 2016)
An 87th minute pin point free-kick from Sido Jombati saw Wanderers grab a 1-0 victory at boggy Newport County and climb to 8th spot in the table, less than a month after they sat 21st in League Two. The winning goal was a near carbon copy of Jombati's previous free-kicks against Grimsby (August 2016) and Portsmouth (April 2016) - the ball being curled into the top left corner of the opponent's net and giving the 'keeper little chance on all three occasions. This was the first time Wanderers had won three succesive League games for 11 months.

SCOTT BROWN LOANED OUT|
(Monday 21st November 2016)
The Club confirmed on Monday that goalkeeper Scott Brown had joined Conference National side Eastleigh on a 28 day loan. 31 year old Brown joined Wanderers in the close season but after suffering an injury in the opening League game of the season was ruled out and prompted Manager Gareth Ainsworth to bring in Chelsea 'keeper Jamal Blackman on loan. Brown returned for the first time from injury in the recent Football League Trophy game with Coventry City but Ainsworth has said that Blackman has earned the right to keep his place in goal. The Wycombe boss added: "Scott needs games to get himself back to full match sharpness and this loan period will give him that opportunity, at a really competitive level in the National League and working under a very good manager in Ronnie Moore."
CAMBRIDGE 1 WYCOMBE 2|
(Saturday 19th November 2016)
A stoppage time strike from Aaron Pierre at Cambridge United saw Wanderers grab their first away win in the League since the 2-1 victory at Dagenham on 9th February 2016 (18 games). A 6th minute penalty, converted by Paul Hayes, had given Wanderers the lead after Pierre had been tripped. However, it looked like that elusive away victory would be put on hold again when Maris thumped home from close range on 87 minutes to level the scores at 1-1. But it was Pierre who managed to thump the ball home, high into the left corner of the net, after the home side failed to deal with a Joe Jacobson corner from the left.
