Wycombe Wanderers 1
Carlisle United 1
Saturday 24th October 2015
Football League Two
A 90th minute goal from Paul Hayes rescued a point for Wanderers as they drew 1-1 with 10-man Carlisle United at Adams Park.The draw brought to an end Wycombe's run of three consecutive League defeats and keeps them in 10th place in the table.
The result came after the surprise team news that an injury to Matt Ingram would mean the Wanderers 'keeper would miss his first League since making his debut in March 2013. Alex Lynch came into the side to make his first Wanderers appearance since stepping out at Wembley in May.
Lynch looked solid on a day that saw United's Luke Joyce was shown a straight red card on 24 minutes for a string challenge on Sam Wood. However, the visitors took the lead three minutes after the break when Troy Archibald-Henville headed home a Danny Grainger corner. Wanderers pressed for an equaliser and were eventually rewarded with 90 minutes approaching when Hayes cleverly looped the ball in from the edge of the box with Carlisle 'keeper Mark Gillespie stranded.
Next game for Wycombe, away to Mansfield Town on Saturday 31st October.

Speaking after the game, Wanderers Manager Gareth Ainsworth told the press: "We created so many chances and I am pleased with the way we came back into the game. We are back to scoring goals, showing fight and never knowing when we are beat. I think we had some massive performances out there. I am happy with the performance and even if we hadnít got the goal late on and lost I would have been pleased because the performance was good."
Commenting on the return of Paul Hayes, Ainsworth added: "It was great to see Hayesey back in the team from the start today. He is above this level and adds so much creativity and industry to the side. I went through a range of emotions but I am happy with the result and more so with the performance we put in as well. Sometimes it is hard to break down 10 men and to do so late on was great. The reaction from how we have been playing was good. Iím hoping that the fans see that even though we didnít get the result we played well."
