Match Gallery: Southend United vs Wycombe Wanderers

15 April 2019

Blues were dealt a blow to their survival hopes as Adebayo Akinfenwa’s brace gave Wycombe a 2-0 win over Southend at Roots Hall...

Neither side could break the other down in the first-half, with no team able to create a clear-cut opportunity in front of goal.

But the Chairboys would go in front midway through the second-half when Scott Kashket’s low ball across the face of goal was put in at the far post by Akinfenwa.

The striker then doubled Wycombe’s lead three minutes later when another cross, this time from the right, found its way to Akinfenwa who looped his header in, securing the points for the visitors.

There was to be no happy homecoming for boss Kevin Bond, who was making his first appearance at Roots Hall following his appointment, and he’d have been disappointed not to have built on last weekend’s morale-boosting performance and point at Fleetwood.
