Bournemouth 1
Saturday 13th October 2001
Football League Division Two
Andy Rammell continued his amazing scoring record this season to head home the goal that earned a deserved draw against Bournemouth at Adams Park. 'Rambo' rose in the 73rd minute to power home Chris Vinnicombe's cross from the left bye-line. Bournemouth had taken the lead in the 21st minute when Derek Holmes' shot from the left side of midfield had eluded Martin Taylor.
Lawrie Sanchez, taking charge of his 150th competetive game at Wycombe, stuck with the same starting line-up for the fifth consecutive game and his team started in bright fashion. After two minutes Jermaine McSporran's cross from the left bye-line was left awaiting that vital touch and moments later Darren Currie forced Cherries' 'keeper Gareth Stewart to collect. On five minutes Rammell's first time effort lacked accuracy and three minutes later Michael Simpson's shot from the edge of the penalty area went inches wide of the left hand upright with Currie just failing to connect with an outstretched boot. Danny Senda then saw a speculative 20 yard effort fumbled away from under his crossbar by Stewart as Wycombe continued their onslaught on the visitors goal.
Brownie - first half screamerHowever, it was the visitors who took the lead against the run of play when Holmes' soft shot skipped past Taylor and nestled in the far corner of the net. The goal, that came after a bizarre decision against Currie, seemed to knock Wycombe off their stride although Simpson could have done better with a free-kick from the left edge of the penalty area after Steve Brown had been tripped by Narada in the 26th minute.
The visitors introduced Tresor Kandol on 28 minutes for his Cherries debut following an injury to Chukki Eribenne and the ex-Luton Town trainee, who scored for The Hatters at Adams Park just over a year ago, went close with a couple of headers before the break.
Steve Brown came closest to equalising during first half stoppage time when he forced Gareth Stewart into a one handed save to claw away an effort that was heading for the top left corner. From the resulting corner the visitors scrambled the ball clear to retain their lead at the break.
Half-time Wycombe 0 Bournemouth 1
Vinni - crucial cross Brian Stock sent a dipping shot just over Taylor's bar five minutes after the re-start but Wycombe showed their grit again by clawing their way back into the game. On 54 minutes a quick exchange between Rammell and Richard Walker ended with the Aston Villa striker being denied by another last gasp save by Stewart.
Five minutes later Sanchez made his obligatory move from his seat in the stand to direct proceedings from the bench. McSporran was withdrawn for Bulman and on 73 minutes Wycombe finally got their reward for their never say die attitude. Vinnicombe's cross from the left wing made Rammell's conversion look easy as the veteran striker bagged his fifth goal in seven games.
After Rammell's equaliser both sides had chances to claim victory. On 78 minutes Taylor made an amazing double save in front of the Valley End, first denying a header by Eddie Howe and then collecting Kandol's follow up on the goal-line. Jamie Hayter also headed just wide before Wycombe rallied in the latter stages. Substitute Gaven Holligan looked extremely nippy and forced Stewart to save in the 89th minute and then in the stoppage time Wycombe almost snatched all three points when a goal mouth scramble saw Walker and Holligan go close.
