  • Adebayo Akinfenwa can't take chances as Wycombe draw with ExeterExeter were knocked off the top of League Two after a 0-0 draw at Wycombe.The hosts had the better of the chances but Adebayo Akinfenwa had an off-day in front of goal as their four-game winning streak came to an end.The Chairboys' top scorer could not convert any of several chances that fell his way against the Grecians at Adams Park. The first big chance of the afternoon came from an awful mistake by Exeter's Pierce Sweeney, who presented the ball to Eberechi Eze and his cross was headed over by Akinfenwa.Exeter then had their first opening on the half-hour when Hiram Boateng turned on the edge of the area before his shot forced Scott Brown into a decent save.Jayden Stockley's free-kick from 30 yards then clipped the top of the crossbar for the visitors, who ended the first half well after a quiet start.Wycombe should have broke through in the 64th minute when Eze sent the ball across goal, onl..

  • Tyson KO for Wycombe's clash with ExeterWycombe will be without striker Nathan Tyson for their Sky Bet League Two clash with leaders Exeter at Adams Park.Tyson had to be carried off on a stretcher in the 3-1 win at Cambridge and a scan has revealed ligament damage.Defender Michael Harriman and striker Scott Kashket also face extended spells in the treatment room, according to boss Gareth Ainsworth."The positive side is we are going to be getting some good players back in the middle of the season," Ainsworth told the Bucks Free Press.Exeter hope defender Luke Croll will be available as the Grecians seek to keep top spot.Croll limped off midway through the first half of last weekend's 1-0 win at Carlisle and his presence will be important as captain Jordan Moore-Taylor is still recovering from a knock.Veteran Dean Moxey could switch to central defence if Croll fails to recover in time.Exeter have no other injury concerns with Jayden Stockley and Reuben Reid set to link ..

  • Pierce Sweeney sends Exeter back to the top of League TwoPierce Sweeney's header was enough for Exeter to see off Carlisle and move back to the top of the Sky Bet League Two table.A header just after half-time by defender Sweeney added to Carlisle's miserable home form.Carlisle skipper Danny Grainger was inches away from finding the target with an early effort, but it was Exeter who carried the main threat with Jayden Stockley's overhead flick hitting a post and Reuben Reid forcing a fingertip save from Jack Bonham with a rasping drive from the edge of the area.Carlisle's first-half build-up play was neat enough without directly troubling Christy Pym in the Grecians' goal, although Hallam Hope was a fraction away from making contact with a driven Shaun Miller cross inside the six-yard box.Exeter went in front in the 49th minute when Sweeney forced a corner on the right and was on hand to nod home from a couple of yards when the resulting kick came to him a..
