Ronnie Jepson: Giving it his all

William Edjenguele's late header handed the League Two strugglers the win after Tom Soares had equalised Anthony Stewart's 16th-minute opener for the hosts.

Matt Bloomfield was sent off 14 minutes from time for the Chairboys but it didn't detract from the much-needed victory for Jepson, who was given a deal until the new year on Friday.

"It was a good victory," said Jepson, who replaced Kevin Blackwell earlier this month. "It was a shame to go 1-0 down from a set-piece. In the first half we were a little bit scrappy but we were still making headway.

"At half-time there were a few words said and I got a fantastic response from the boys. Even before they were down to 10 men we were at it and our tails were up and thankfully we got a couple of goals today.

"The chairman has asked me to take over until January. I'll do that and once I'm here I will give it my all. If it's successful and then come January he thinks I'm the man for the job, then fine - if he doesn't, I'll shake his hand.

"I'm not one of those people who shouts: 'give me the job'. You get judged on results. My appointment gives the club stability and that's the decision the board made."

Stewart gave Wycombe the lead from a corner, meeting Josh Scowen's cross at the far post to volley into the top corner.

But Soares grabbed a deserved equaliser for the visitors on 69 minutes when he finished Anton Forrester's clever cut-back.

Bloomfield was sent off for a rash challenge on Shaun Beeley before Edjenguele climbed highest to head home Chris Sedgwick's corner two minutes from time.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
