Wycombe Wanderers 1-3 Burton Albion

Burton began life under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink with victory at Wycombe.

Albion ended a run of three games without a win against a side who could only name four substitutes - including goalkeeping coach Barry Richardson, 45.

Phil Edwards headed in the first from a corner by Matty Palmer, who then set up Alex MacDonald for the second.

Paul Hayes pulled one back from the spot after Hogan Ephraim was fouled by Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, but Jacob Blyth nodded in to secure the points.

Former Chelsea and Leeds striker Hasselbaink's only previous managerial experience came in his one campaign as Royal Antwerp boss last season, but the 42-year-old has made a promising start as successor to Gary Rowett, who left to join Birmingham City, by beating the team who were top of League Two before the weekend began.

Wycombe finished with 10 men after Alfie Mawson had to go off injured late on with all three substitutions used.

This was only a second defeat in 13 games for the Chairboys, but they only remain above fourth-placed Burton on goal difference.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"We didn't stop fighting, we fought right to the end.

"There were a lot of bad things and we'll have to put them right at Cheltenham on Saturday,

"We have a very slim squad here. We know what we are and we'll get back on track.

"We're getting this reputation now as a really hardworking team and teams will come here and try and outwork us."

Burton manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told BBC Radio Derby:

"The performance was good. The team performance was solid.

"We were good together, worked very hard and matched Wycombe hard with the work rate.

"We knew that was going to be key. At stages we did really, really well."
