Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 York City

Fred Onyedinma
Onyedinma joined Wycombe on loan in November

Fred Onyedinma made it two goals in as many games as league leaders Wycombe saw off York at Adams Park.

The Chairboys were denied a bigger win by York keeper Bobby Olejnik, who was in fine form on his debut.

Millwall loanee Onyedinma broke the deadlock after the break when he headed in following Sam Wood's volleyed cross.

Marvin McCoy nearly equalised against his former side but home keeper Matt Ingram produced a superb save from the full-back's deflected shot.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It was a performance that we were worried about, we had a couple of ins and outs in the week. I was worried about this one as York's away form has been great.

"Our first-half performance was great. And what a save from Matt Ingram at the end, he's really dug it out when he was called on. Today he was superb.

"I thought we saw the game out really professionally which is really important."

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"I thought the best team won today, no qualms.

"We did a lot better in the second half and we didn't create enough opportunities today but you've got to give credit to the opposition.

"You can see why they're at the top end of the league.

"We've always started games well, but we couldn't get a foothold in the game today and that's credit to Wycombe."
