For the few attending the game they saw an unchanged line-up to the one that beat Stockport County the previous Saturday - Steve Williams continued in goal despite Frank Talia being ready for his comeback while Mark Rogers retained his place in the centre of defence after recovering from heatstroke against Stockport.
Harris opened the scoring after only two minutes when he headed home from close range following a Chris Vinnicombe cross whipped in from the left.
The visitors responded two minutes later when a corner from the left saw Patrick Agyemang's header blocked by Roger Johnson. Then on nine minutes Williams managed to parry another effort by Agyemang sent in from the edge of the penalty area. It was another confidence booster for Williams in only his second competitive First Team start for the Wanderers.
Johnson saw a shot parried by Steve Banks in the Wimbledon goal on ?? minutes as Wycombe went in search of a second. A fairly even first half ended with Jermaine McSporran slicing a shot over the bar from inside the penalty while at the other end Nigel Reo-Coker had two efforts at goal, one going wide and the other being blocked again by Johnson.
Half-time Wycombe 1 Wimbledon 0
The second-half belonged in the main to Wycombe. On 53 minutes Michael Simpon's shot was blocked and Harris headed the rebound wide. However, three minutes later it was the ex-Palace man who added his second to double Wycombe's lead. It was another header and this time getting on the end of a Jermaine McSporran cross from the right wing after Vinnicombe had delivered a free-kick from inside the Wycombe half.
Wimbledon introduced veteran Dean Holdsworth shortly after the goal but the visitors rarely troubled Wycombe again and the final winning margin could have been greater. On 72 minutes Danny Senda saw his shot go just wide following another long throw from Harris while four minutes later Darren Currie almost scored with a spectacular overhead kick that would have capped another delightful display by the Wanderers midfielder.
They may not have been many there to see it but those who were will surely pass on the message that Wycombe may still turn a few heads this season and get the bookmakers re-thinking.
