Keith Ryan - injury problem again - picture Paul DennisThe Reserve XI returned another disappointing result as Keith Ryan continued his comeback from injury. But there was a set-back for 'Rhino' when he had to be substituted just two minutes into the second-half with a thigh problem that needed a heavy ice-pack to quell.
After the previous week's 5-1 reverse to Brighton there was little to get excited about as Wycombe put in another lacklustre display, albeit against a fairly strong Rovers side. Ex-Wycombe loan player Mark Foran was joined by ex-QPR and Reading midfielder, Mike Meaker, ex-QPR defender Trevor Challis and ex-Portsmouth defender Robbie Pethick in the Rovers line-up. Their experience proved far too strong for The Wanderers, with forwards Danny Senda and Peter Holsgrove being completely snuffed out by veterans Pethick and Foran.
A dull first half saw Meaker miss two good chances for Rovers while Wycombe failed to register a single worthwhile effort on goal. The inevitable winning goal came after 66 minutes when Matt Brady lost possession in his own half and Christian Parker latched on to convert past Westhead - the ball going in off the post. Wycombe's only noteworthy effort came eight minutes from time after a strong run from Leeyon Phelan saw Senda chip in for Holsgrove but with only the 'keeper to beat from 18 yards, the Wanderers Youth Teamer pulled his shot wide. The high point of the match for Wycombe was when 16 year old Jonny Dixon made his Reserve Team debut after he came on as a late substitute. Dixon has been a prolific scorer for the Youth Team and it will interesting to follow his progress at a higher level.
