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.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
