Wycombe 2-1 Stourbridge- Match Report

Last updated : 07 January 2017

Adebeyo Akinfenwa breaks Stourbridge hearts

Adebayo Akinfenwa's late header denied non-league Stourbridge a replay as League Two Wycombe scraped into the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup with a 2-1 win.

The team from the Northern Premier League, the seventh tier of English football, more than held their own in what was the first third-round tie in their history and were unlucky in defeat.

Scott Kashket put Wycombe's first clear chance wide, but Stourbridge were providing plenty of menace, with Jamal Blackman forced to push a fine effort by Dan Scarr behind.

The hosts broke through in the second minute of the second half, when Sam Wood turned the ball in from close range after Matt Gould had beaten away Luke O'Nien's initial shot.

The visitors then sent their fans ballistic when Scarr managed to finish past Blackman after Leon Broadhurst's free-kick was not properly cleared.

Tom Tonks' cross-cum-shot then hit the bar for the Glassboys, but they were left heartbroken with seven minutes left when Akinfenwa was left alone to head in a terrific cross from Joe Jacobson.
