Wycombe Wanderers 3-0 York City

Anthony Stewart
Anthony Stewart opened the scoring as Wycombe won comfortably.

Wycombe made a flying start to their League Two campaign with a comfortable win over York at Adams Park.

Anthony Stewart, making his second Wycombe debut, headed in the opening goal after a York defensive error.

Garry Thompson then did well to play in Aaron Holloway, who fired a low shot into the net.

The scoring was completed in bizarre circumstances when York defender Stephane Zubar's attempted back-pass lobbed keeper Scott Flinders.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It was always nice to see some of the new boys jump into what we do and get off to winning ways.

"We played some great stuff out there today and we are really pleased to get all three points.

"There is no play-off hangover because it was a no disappointment situation for me, it was total pride.

"The wounds of Torquay are still open on me and I'll do my utmost not to return to those dark days."

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"It was always going to be a difficult place to come but you can't defend like we did today.

"That was our strength towards the back end of last season. We gave a soft goal away and goals change games.

"I'm very disappointed with our defensive display. In a nutshell we've got to be better in both boxes."
