Commenting on the deal Lambert said, "I'm always one for giving people a chance to prove themselves. If Leon's goals can contribute to us getting out of this league, no-one will worry about what he was like." Lambert added, "So far I've had no problems with Leon and I don't think there will be any. He's very been pleasant since he joined. What he lacks in height he makes up ;for in other attributes. He knows where the goal is and has scored goals in higher leagues which is good for us if we go up. I just want him to score goals like he has for previous clubs. If we get that it'll be great."
Meanwhile Knight was keen to prove his doubters wrong, saying after penning a 18 month deal, "People have got this stigma obout me that I go and kick down doors, I'm only 5ft 6", I'm not kicking down no doors! When I was younger I admit I did have a bit of an attitude, but it wasn't a bad attitude, just a winning attitude. People didn't understand that I didn't like losing and when I was young I used to get in a strop when I lost."
Left Wycombe on 19th August 2008 after falling out of favour with new Manager Peter Taylor. Knight had failed to turn up for one pre-season friendly and was told to improve his discipline and fitness, as well as being fined by the Club. Taylor appeared to be giving Knight a second chance when quoted in the press as saying, "He has apologised and taken his punishment on the chin. He has bounced back and as far as I am concerned that is the end of the matter."
