Anthony Stewart: The fans were terrific

Stewart's fine back-post header helped the Chairboys pick up their second victory in four days which ended City's unbeaten start to the season at St James Park.

And the centre-back joined his team-mates in racing to celebrate with the 57 away fans who made the 430-mile round-trip.

"It is always great to celebrate a goal with the fans, no matter how many of them are there," he said. "So a huge thank you to them for coming. It's a long way to come on a Tuesday night so thanks to them.

"I'd been ill for the last couple of days and only trained on Monday so I didn't think I'd be starting and it was great to get that second goal which we really needed as we'd been under the cosh for a few minutes.

"It was a great result but we always believe we can beat any team as we showed again. We needed a few wins under our belt, which we now have so we can keep going and believing."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
