Morecambe 0-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Defender Aaron Pierre scored the only goal of the game as Wycombe Wanderers kept up their 100% winning start to the season against Morecambe.

Home debutant Shaun Miller could have opened the scoring early on but a poor first touch meant the chance was lost.

The hosts kept pressing and were almost rewarded with the opener only for Kevin Ellison's drive to be judged offside.

Pierre sealed all three points for the visitors after the break when he nodded home Joe Jacobson's free-kick.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It is early days but sometimes you've got to grind results out, and today was a grind, no doubt.

"The physical side of the game is huge. We pride ourselves on being physically fit and strong.

"There's not many of us so we stick together. We're all in it together. That's the way it's got to be - and how it will be under me - and that's how we're producing the results we're seeing.

"We want a good mid-table finish at the minimum and that'll be success for Wycombe Wanderers this year, with the size of the club we are."
