Wycombe Report - Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
WYCOMBE were awarded a daft free kick 25 yards out, the ball was lofted into the box, there was a bit of head tennis, a scramble, a block, a bump, a barge, another scramble and the ball fell to the big centre half, Rogers.

In added time at the end of the half, Wycombe were awarded another weird free kick, for Ford failing to touch a striker. It was taken quickly and the ball was half cleared to the right. Crowe was a bit slow to close down the Wycombe player and enough space was allowed for a cross to be curled to the far post. Onuora, about 3 yards out, headed back across goal. The ball looped towards goal, bounced once and, as if by magic, Groves appeared. The ancient monument stooped and flicked his head back up, making the ball arc away from almost on the line and over the bar for a corner. Hail to the chief. No-one heckled him then.
Half time: Grimsby Town 1 Wycombe Wanderers 0
And that was the first half. Mainly poor, occasionally laughable, there was the hint of something to savour from Town, with the merest suggestion that Wycombe would be able to get inside he Town penalty area if they could actually string more than two passes together, in a line, one after the other, this year. Cas frightened the life out of them on the three occasions he touched the ball, Rowan was proving to be a more effective link player than Ten Heuvel, if not exactly dangerous, and Campbell was sparky. Crane had no difficulty heading the ball, and Ford was in overdrive, purring across the park to dispossess and ooze strikers away from goal. All in all, acceptable and rather comfortable, if not earth shattering.
