Wycombe Wanderers 2-2 Stevenage

Fred Onyedinma
Wycombe Wanderers Fred Onyedinma has scored four goals in his last three games.

Wycombe keeper Matt Ingram saved Dean Parrett's last-minute penalty to deny 10-man Stevenage victory in League Two.

Fred Onyedinma stroked the hosts ahead, but Tom Pett's header drew Boro level.

Paul Hayes had a goal disallowed for a foul on Boro keeper Chris Day before Parrett's free-kick gave Stevenage the lead, but Onyedinma equalised by heading in his second from a corner.

Chris Beardsley was then dismissed for a second yellow card, before Ingram's dramatic save ensured a point each.

"I thought they were physical, but you're going to get that with Stevenage and that's no surprise. I thought we played around it really well.

"I know everyone's gone home smiling because we definitely got out of jail at the end, but it's nothing more than we deserved and if there was to be a winner today it deserved to be Wycombe.

"If there is a keeper that's going to save a penalty it's Matt Ingram. He takes up most of the goal he's that big."

Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"The emotions swung a little. The early goal got them off to a good start and it was difficult. We were hanging on at times in that first half.

"With the sending off and then the equaliser, it would've been easy for us to buckle and give everything up, but it was a good response from the players.

"They took the game forward. They attacked it as best they could and defended for their lives. It was terrific to earn the penalty and so much of a disappointment not to score it."
