Cheltenham Town 0
Wycombe Wanderers 1
Friday 30th December 2016
Football League Two
Wanderers kept their unbeaten run intact with a gritty 1-0 victory at struggling Cheltenham Town on Friday evening. The only goal of what was Gareth Ainsworth's 200th League game in charge of the Wanderers came on 9 minutes when Scott Kashket scored for his fourth game running.
Wycombe had Scott Brown to thank for keeping the home side at bay after the former Cheltenham 'keeper came in for the injured Jamal Blackman. Brown was one of two changes forced upon Wycombe following the 3-3 draw at Plymouth on Boxing - Sido Jombati replacing the injured Michael Harriman, the only change to the starting XI.
The latest victory lifts Wycombe to 5th place in the table ahead of the regular Saturday fixtures where Luton will leapfrog Wanderers should they Barnet at Kenilworth Road. This round of fixtures marks the half-way stage of the season where Wycombe have accumulated 38 points from 23 games, compared to 40 at the same stage in 2015/16.

Speaking after the game, Wanderers Manager Gareth Ainsworth told the press: "We looked leggy, but I'm delighted with the win, and Scotty Kashket scores another goal! They dealt well with Bayo. I have to mention Scott Brown - he was outstanding."
"We know Graham Westley was here scouting for Newport [Wanderers opponents on 2 January 2017]. If we need to rotate we will do."
The Wycombe boss paid tribute to the Wanderers followers who had made it down the A40 for the Friday night game: "Thank you, thank you, thank you 871 times to the Wycombe fans. They kept us going."
