Back-to-back wins lift Blues out of relegation zone

THE scoring partnership of Paul Hayes and Stuart Beavon lifted Wycombe out of the relegation zone on Tuesday night.

THE scoring partnership of Paul Hayes and Stuart Beavon lifted Wycombe out of the relegation zone on Tuesday night.

A brace for on-loan Hayes and goal from top scorer Beavon took their combined tally to 13 goals in six league games.

And their blossoming relationship helped Blues secure back-to-back wins for the first time this season and stretch their unbeaten run to four games with a late Sheffield Wednesday leveller against Walsall enough to see them climb out of the bottom four.

A tight first-half saw the teams head in level at the break but it was Wycombe who struck first after the restart when Hayes tapped in after a Beavon shot was parried by Lenny Pidgeley on 58 minutes.

They doubled their lead five minutes later through Beavon before a powerful James Dunne free-kick hauled the Grecians back into the game.

But it was to be Wycombe's night as Hayes headed in on 70 minutes to seal the crucial points.

WANDERERS: Bull, McCoy, Winfield (Johnson 35), Doherty, Basey, Bloomfield, Lewis, Eastmond, Strevens (Ainsworth 90), Beavon, Hayes (Hackett 83).

Subs (not used): Laing, McClure.

Booked: Johnson (65 mins), Beavon (88 mins).
