Wycombe hold on to book their spot in the League One Play Off Final with a 6-3 win on aggregate.
It was Fleetwood who opened the scoring in the first half from a long range Danny Andrew finish to give the away side hope, but just after half time it was Wycombe who equalised the game at 1-1 through a tidy finish from Fred Onyedinma.
Ched Evans gave the away side the lead once again, this time from the penalty spot as the away side pushed for more goals. However, it was Wycombe who had the final say as Fred Onyedinma curled the ball home to give his side the win over the two legs.
With such a large lead going into the tie, Wycombe didn’t make any changes for this game against Fleetwood, whilst the visitors made one change with Danny Andrew coming in for the suspended Lewie Coyle.
The visitors needed to be extremely attacking in this game to get anything from it, with a few early corners testing the resilience of Wycombe Wanderers.
Fleetwood kept on coming at the Wycombe defence, this time it was Callum Connolly who was the furthest forward but he flicked his attempt just over the bar.
It seemed to be all one-way traffic for the first 20 minutes of the match, with Fleetwood having a few more chances and corners for Wycombe to deal with. However, the home side stood firm at the back. But in the 22nd minute, their defences were broken.
Another searching ball from Burns was slightly overcooked to the back post, but McKay was there to lift the ball back into the box. It was headed away by a Wycombe defender but only as far as Danny Andrew on the edge of the box and he hammered a wonderful left footed half volley home to give the away side a route back in the game.
It wasn’t all Fleetwood in the first half however, as Wycombe were very close to levelling the game up. Cairns steams out of his area to clear the ball up field, and it was Ofoborh who went for the spectacular halfway line goal, and it needed a wonderful stop by Cairns.
Not much else happened in the first half, except for a very strong penalty appeal for the away side as McKay’s long-range effort clearly hit the outstretched arm of the Wycombe defender but was waved away by the referee.
Fleetwood went into half time well on top of Wycombe, but as the second half began it was Wycombe who took the game out of the visitors’ sights. It was a long driving run from Fred Onyedinma, who stood up to Harry Souter. The defender got his body in the way of the forward, but made the inexplicable decision to pass the ball back to the attacker rather than clear the ball about 2 yards out and he slotted it underneath Cairns.
Just before the hour mark, Fleetwood continued pressure going forward led to a clumsy challenge in the box from Joe Jacobson on Barrie McKay, and Ched Evans dispatched the penalty into the bottom right hand corner to give the away side some hope.
Down the other end, Adebayo Akinfenwa really should have put the game beyond Fleetwood, as his close-range shot was not powerful enough to trouble Cairns in the net.
With 10 minutes to play, Ched Evans really should have made this game even closer. A wonderful cross from Burns on the right was headed down by the unmarked Ched Evans, but his header was straight at Allsop in the Wycombe net.
But it was the home side who had the final laugh in the match. Onyedinma picked the ball up on the edge of the box and curled a beautiful finish past Cairns in to the back of the net and sealed Wycombe a spot in the Play Off Final.
Fred Onyedinma: My MOTM.Scored a very tidy goal after the mistake by Soutter, and was a handful every time the home side went on the counter attack, especially for the final goal of the game. 8
Alex Samuel: Struggled up front on his own against Souter and Gibson, and was substituted at half time for Adebayo Akinfenwa. 6
Curtis Thompson: Struggled when he first came on, getting a yellow card in the first minute of his appearance. Came into the game more in the second half. 6
Adebayo Akinfenwa: Did the job that was expected off him in the second half, but really should have buried his chance that he had. 6
Alex Pattison: Not enough time to judge.
Nick Freeman: Not enough time to judge.
Alex Cairns: Made a loose passes at the back at times, but made a great save to stop the long range effort from Ofoborh. 6
Callum Connolly: Much better game from Connolly compared to the first leg. Started drifting higher up the field in this game and found himself on the end of a few chances he probably should have put on target. 6
Harry Souter: His defensive error is the reason why Fleetwood are not in the Play Off final, and he struggled to keep the ball under control throughout the second half. 5
Lewis Gibson: Performed well at the back and made a lot of key passes throughout the match to push his side forward. 7
Danny Andrew: Took his goal very well in the first half, and always looked a threat on his left foot and close to the box. 7
Josh Morris: Ball seemed to bypass Morris in all the attacks that went Fleetwood’s way in the game. 6
