Football League Two

Wanderers lost more ground on their outside chance of reaching the play-offs after playing out a goalless stalemate with Yeovil Town in front of the lowest crowd of the season at Adams Park (2,821).

Gareth Ainsworth made one change the side that had drawn with Barnet the previous Saturday - Jerell Sellars coming in for Max Kretzschmar - but once again it was lack of form from the Wanderers strikeforce that cost the chance of taking the three points.

The closest Wycombe came to grabbing a goal came two minutes into the second-half when Marcus Bean's goalbound effort was tipped away from the top right corner of the Valley End net. Wanderers struck the woodwork too but the visitors could have won the game in the second minute of stoppage time when substitute Marc Laird shot wide of the post after a comedy of errors in the Wanderers defence.

Wycombe travel to Portsmouth on Saturday (23rd April) in their last chance saloon attempt at squeezing into the play-off places.

Gareth AinsworthSpeaking after the game, Wanderers Manager Gareth Ainsworth told the press: "We will go again on Saturday [at Porstmouth] and unbelievably we are still in the play-off race. It is going to be tough and we need results to go our way elsewhere. I remember that happening a couple of years ago and it coming off for us though. I believe a couple of wins and a draw or maybe three wins will get us into the play-offs places."

Ainsworth added: "We have reached our target of 61 points and we are just creeping along with draws now and really need a win. We have lost one game in our last nine and that sounds good but there have been too many draws and I understand that. The effort of the players canít ever be questioned. Anyone who says that the boys donít give everything can come and see me because they do."
