Wycombe Wanderers 1
Saturday 5th August 2006
Football League Two
Wanderers drew their opening game of the 2006/7 campaign under new Manager Paul Lambert - the game finishing 1-1 with Wrexham after a mistake by 'keeper Ricardo Batista allowed Mark Jones to equalise Tommy Mooney's sixth minute opener.
Batista was one of four Wanderers making their debuts alongside Anthony Grant, Sam Stockley and Chris Palmer as Wycombe kicked off the new season under new Management. Palmer was the standout of the debutants. The left sided midfielder got past three players before slipping in a low cross into the box for Mooney to blast home.
Wycombe could have increased their lead before disaster struck on 31 minutes. Batista cleared Russell Martin's dodgy backpass but then inexplicably raced 20 yards outside his own area chasing his own kick and was then caught in no-man's land when he mis-queued his second kick allowing Jones to cleverly lift the ball over him and into an empty net.
It was then Wrexham, who had come out of Administration just 48 hours earlier, who had the better chances during the remainder of the first period. But Wycombe responded again and had their best chance for winner on 80 minutes when substitute Jonny Dixon ballooned a header over the crossbar. Batista was then grateful for a last minute goalline clearance by Russell Martin after the Wycombe 'keeper could only parry Matty Done’s cross straight into the path of Neil Roberts.
