Ten-man Gillingham held on for a narrow victory away at Wycombe in League Two.

Danny Kedwell had a gilt-edged chance to put the Gills ahead early on but he nodded wide from eight yards out.

But Joe Martin was on hand to side-foot the visitors into the lead after the break when Myles Weston's free-kick came back off the post.

Gills midfielder Chris Whelpdale then headed wide, and Tom Flanagan was sent off for a second bookable offence when he pulled down Richard Logan.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wycombe manager Gary Waddock told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"Second half, I was disappointed with our overall performance - they went down to 10 men and we didn't use the ball well enough, we didn't create enough.

"We played into their hands really because they dropped off and we were just throwing balls into their centre-halves for them to be able to head it clear.

"In situations like that, you've got the extra man, you've got to move the ball quickly, get it into wide areas and try and get in behind them that way.

"Losing Sam Wood was a big blow, he was beginning to get himself into the game and becoming a threat."
