Wycombe Wanderers 4-3 Southend United

Late goals from Anthony Stewart and Scott Kashket saw Wycombe recover from 3-1 down to win 4-3 at home to Southend, whose winless start to the season continued.

The visitors led with two minutes left but Stewart equalised in the 89th minute and Kashket struck the winner in stoppage time as the Chairboys continued their unbeaten start in League One.

Brandon Goodship had opened his account for Southend by coolly slotting home the opener into the bottom corner in the 11th minute.

On the half-hour mark the lead was doubled as Stephen Humphrys unleashed an unstoppable curling left-footed strike from outside the box which nestled in the far top corner.

The hosts grabbed one back six minutes later as Mark Milligan somehow put the ball into his own net.

But the two-goal advantage was restored two minutes after half-time when Humphrys doubled his tally with his second stunning strike of the afternoon.

Kashket stroked home in the 55th minute to make it 3-2 and Wycombe were twice denied an equaliser by the frame of the goal, as Jack Grimmer hit the crossbar and Dominic Gape smashed against a post.

Late on Nathan Bishop kept out efforts from Kashket and David Wheeler to seemingly secure the points for the visitors.

But Stewart broke through before Kashket neatly tucked home his second in the second minute of added time to complete a dramatic turnaround.
