Late goal gives Wycombe welcome away win

Aaron Pierre slammed home with virtually the last kick of the game to give Wycombe a long-awaited away win with a 2-1 triumph over Cambridge.

The Chairboys were without an away league win since February 9, but finally got over the line as Pierre thundered the ball into the roof of the net after Brad Halliday failed to clear a corner.

Cambridge had only equalised three minutes from the end of the 90 as George Maris converted a rebound after Uche Ikpeazu's effort hit the inside of the far post.

It was the least the U's deserved, having been kept at bay by an inspired performance by goalkeeper Jamal Blackman.

Blackman parried an effort from substitute Ikpeazu, before producing two superb stops in a matter of minutes to twice deny U's defender Mark Roberts.

Luke Berry lifted a freekick narrowly over and Blackman was called into action again to save Blair Adam's effort at his near post, before being finally helpless to prevent Maris slamming home Cambridge's equaliser.

Paul Hayes had given the visitors an early lead, lifting a sixth minute penalty over Will Norris after Roberts was penalised for a challenge on Pierre.
