WYCOMBE 2 MANSFIELD 1|

The visitors took the lead in the 4th minute when Matt Rhead was left unmarked to head in following a corner from the right. Wanderers were perhaps a little fortunate to get back on level terms on the half-hour mark when Martin Riley handled a Paul Hayes' shot from the left of goal on the edge of the box, with Hayes stepping up to inch the resulting spot-kick past Dimitor Evtimov in the Stags goal.

MAWSON LOAN EXTENDED|
(Monday 1st September 2014)
Deadline day news saw Brentford defender Alfie Mawson extend his loan deal at Wycombe until 1st January 2015. The 20 year old arrived on one-month 'youth loan' on the opening day of the season and immediately impressed, appearing in all six opening League and cup games. Commenting on the news, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said, "Alfie has been outstanding for us, particularly for someone so young who had only played a handful of senior games before he came here. He and Aaron [Pierre] have formed an excellent partnership at the back and it’s a real boost for us to retain his services until January.”
(Monday 1st September 2014)
Slightly surprising news on transfer deadline day was the release of Junior Morias. Surprising, in as much that the now 19 year old agreed a new one year deal just prior to the start of the current season. Morias made his Wanderers debut under Gareth Ainsworth back in September 2012 and amongst loan spells with Hendon (twice) and Boreham Wood, totalled 27 League apperances but all from the bench and without hitting the back of the net. Also made four cup appearances for the Wanderers, with his only start coming in the FA Cup tie at Crewe in November 2012. A short statement of the official website confirmed he had left by 'mutual consent'.
