Southern Counties League
Wokingham V Wycombe
Wokingham began their Southern Counties League campaign against a well organised and disciplined Wycombe District side.
The first half saw Wokingham take the lead early on when Emil Mursalov broke through the defence and drilled a low effort past the keeper. Despite the early goal, Wokingham found it difficult in the first half as Wycombe prevented Wokingham from playing their usual fast tempo. Wycombe further frustrated Wokingham by scoring twice before half time putting the Bucks team deservedly ahead at the break.
The second half saw Wokingham come flying out of the blocks determined to get back into the game. The tempo of the game subsequently increased and gaps began to appear in Wycombe's defence. However, the equaliser came as a result of individual brilliance from Ejiro Abbey who beat three Wycombe players before nestling the ball into the top corner. This galvanised Wokingham but it was Wycombe who went 3-2 ahead against the run of play when their striker latched onto a long ball and finished well. Wokingham continued to press and the equaliser came when Josh Murray managed to get on the end of a Sam Robinson corner at the back post. It looked like Wokingham would go on to find a winner but Wycombe battled hard for the draw.
The team showed great character to come back against an organised and physically strong Wycombe team - meaning Wokingham maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Wokingham travel to Portsmouth next on 4th November in a Southern Counties and Surrey League double header.
Wokingham 3- 3 Wycombe
Well done all.
