Stevenage 0-0 Wycombe Wanderers

Adebayo Akinfenwa came within a whisker of a late winner as Wycombe Wanderers were forced to settle for a draw at Stevenage.

Borough have now gone seven league games without a win, and rarely threatened, while the Chairboys moved to within three points of third-placed Accrington, albeit having played a game more.

Akinfenwa did well to put Craig Mackail-Smith in behind the defence, although Joe Fryer made a brave block at his feet before Nick Freeman made a mess of the follow-up.

There was almost a bizarre opener just before half-time when Adam El-Abd's free-kick from inside his own half was missed by Fryer. Ronnie Henry bailed out his teammate by clearing off the line.

Chris Whelpdale headed the best chance of the second half into the side-netting from Joe Martin's cross, as chances remained thin on the ground.

Wycombe nearly snatched three points when Akinfenwa's flicked header from Joe Jacobson's deep free-kick came back off the post.
