Match ends, Rochdale 1, Wycombe Wanderers 0.
Ian Henderson's late goal kept Rochdale out of the relegation zone as they beat Wycombe.
The Chairboys were unfortunate not to take a share of the spoils after shading the game for long periods.
They had the better of a poor first half, Scott Kashket going closest when he cut in from the right and sent a curling effort goalward with a slight deflection off Jim McNulty sending the shot against the crossbar.
Wycombe kept the ball alive and Adebayo Akinfenwa's flick sent Kashket in on goal - he managed to nick the ball past Josh Lillis but wide of the far post.
And Gareth Ainsworth's men continued to look the more likely scorers after the interval, Kashket rounding Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Lillis before rolling the ball towards an empty goal, only for McNulty to race back and rescue the situation with a goalline clearance.
But the winner came 11 minutes from time when Aaron Wilbraham's looping header struck the crossbar, Rekeil Pyke's follow-up shot was blocked and Henderson fired home the loose ball from close range.
