Wycombe Wanderers entertained Slough Town in what many viewed as a make or break game for The Rebels' hopes of catching Wycombe in the Conference table.

On an amazing evening a capacity crowd of 7,230 packed into Adams Park to witness a tight encounter. Those that couldn't get in - with the gates locked - watched from the hillside above the Woodland terrace.

Vircavs went straight into the side to make his second Wycombe debut and was like a rock at the back for Wycombe.

The only goal of the game came on 27 minutes with a move started by ex-Rebel Steve Thompson. He fed Carroll down the right wing and his cross was met by Keith Scott. The initial header was saved by Carl Emberson in the Slough goal but Scott was able to touch in the rebound.

Moments later an innocuous looking challenge between Emeberson and Scott left the Wycombe striker with an injured ankle and, after lengthy treatment, was replaced.

The second half was a fiery affair. On 55 minutes Andy Kerr jostled with Andy Sayer and as Sayer fell to the ground Kerr flicked out a leg. Referee Graham Barber produced a red card and the temperatures rose again.

Mark Fiore's challenge left Stapleton hobbling and on crutches after the game.

Stapleton had already dropped back into defence to cover for the departed Kerr and when Stapleton limped off Carroll converted to a defender.

But Wycombe held on without too much trouble and the challenge of Slough was all but over.
