Wycombe Wanderers 3-3 Cheltenham Town

Brian Graham struck a late equaliser for Cheltenham as they came back from a two-goal deficit to claim a thrilling draw at League Two high-flyers Wycombe.

This is the second season in a row that this fixture has finished with this scoreline, but it looked very unlikely after Adebayo Akinfenwa's two goals had helped turn the match in the hosts' favour.

Cheltenham took the lead when Carl Winchester helped Jordan Cranston's free-kick across goal and Graham applied the finishing touch.

Wycombe turned the game around with two goals in the first five minutes of the second half as Ebere Eze swept in Sam Saunders' cross before Akinfenwa scrambled in a rebound after Nick Freeman's shot hit the post.

The Chairboys extended their lead when Akinfenwa's first-time effort from Eze's cross was deflected in before a superb 25-yard strike by Winchester gave the Robins hope.

They then dramatically drew level with two minutes left when Graham's looping header from Mohamed Eisa's cross crept in off the post.
