Stephen McGinn's goal boosts Wycombe beyond Exeter

Stephen McGinn scored his first Wycombe goal to lead his side to a 1-0 win over Exeter and up to fourth in the Sky Bet League Two table.

Heading to Adams Park the Grecians had won their last three league games but they were undone by McGinn's curled effort on 53 minutes as the visitors stayed 13th.

After five minutes Jamie McAllister's cross found Jayden Stockley, who headed just wide for Exeter, while at the other end Michael Harriman's shot forced a save from Bobby Olejnik.

Joel Grant almost put Exeter ahead against his former club, but was denied by a great save from Ryan Allsop before Stockley put the rebound wide.

Stockley had another chance on the half-hour mark but his left-footed volley was met by another fine save from Allsop.

And Wycombe took the lead eight minutes into the second half with their first league goal at home in 2016.

It was worth waiting for as McGinn picked up the ball 25 yards out and curled a beautiful effort into the top corner, with the hosts seeing the rest of the game out for the victory.
