Full time!

And the referee blows his whistle to end an extraordinary night of football! It was a frantic start with three goals in seven minutes and Wycombe never looked back.

The Chairboys made full use of their numerical advantage, constantly applying pressure and were rewarded for their enterprising play.

All to do for Fleetwood as they not only need to find four goals and will be without Coyle and Madden for the second leg. For a team as hot as the Cod Army were coming into the play-offs, the apparent end of their season will be bitterly disappointing. 

That's all for now. My name is John Lupo and I hope you enjoyed tonight's coverage as Wycombe are on their way to Wembley. That's all for now. Take care!

21:482 years ago

Fleetwood down to nine men!

85' Madden is sent off after having words with the referee. He felt aggrieved after being booked for diving against Darius Charles and the argument sees him pick up a second yellow and he will miss the fixture at Adams Park next week.
21:482 years ago

Fleetwood miss

82' Burns gets a little ambitious. After playing a one-two with Madden, he decides to take a speculative shot that's nowhere close with teammates available to pass to.

Second drinks break

69' A time out for some refreshments as Evans saw a poor delivery by Andrew off of a corner one minute prior.

21:352 years ago

Cairns prevents a fifth

62' It's been a nightmare evening for the Fleetwood keeper, but he makes a really good save after a neat one-two, Onyedinma latching on to a lovely through ball from Samuel that's kept out.
21:302 years ago

Fleetwood response

60' The hosts nearly get a second as Barrie McKay's free kick is tipped over Allsop.
21:292 years ago

21:212 years ago

Chance wasted for the hosts

55' Fleetwood have a good spell of possession with Burns playing a cross down the right, but Evan's doesn't complete his run. Typical of the Cod Army today.
21:192 years ago

Second half is underway!

We have returned with Wycombe in pole position, up two on the scoreboard and with a man advantage.  Fleetwood manager Joey Barton makes a substitution with Kyle Dempsey replacing Callum Connolly.
20:392 years ago

The halftime whistle blows!

What a first half. Four goals, three bookings, two penalties given, an own goal and we still have 45 minutes to play.


We're going to take a short break and be back with the second half. 

20:362 years ago

20:252 years ago

Fleetwood substitution

36' The first change by either side sees Danny Andrew replacing Josh Morris.
20:232 years ago

Penalty saved!

34' Joe Jacobson takes the spot kick, but his attempt is saved in the bottom right corner by Cairns, who also diverts Wheeler's follow-up over the bar, atoning for his earlier error. 
20:212 years ago

Fleetwood down to 10 men!

33' A horrible tackle by Lewie Coyle on Jacobson and he is sent off after being shown a straight red card!
20:072 years ago

First booking of the night

30' The game has slowed down in the last few minutes, but Jacobson is booked.
20:052 years ago

Drinks break

Visitors dominating

Wycombe are really on top of things. Fred Odenyima and Dominic Gape take resulting free kicks after corners, but neither are able to convert. Still, a signal of intent from Gareth Ainsworth's side.

Wycombe almost add a third!

11' The visitors go close again as Matt Bloomfield wins just outside the Fleetwood penalty area, but Joe Jacobson blazes over from just outside the box.
19:482 years ago

Wycombe re-take the lead!

GOAL! 7' This is a bonkers game so far. Souttar swings in a corner that Fleetwood keeper Alex Cairns accidentally puts in his own net to give Wanderers the lead again.

Fleetwood level from the spot!

GOAL! 4' The Wycombe goalkeeper Ryan Allsop takes down Lewis Gibson after Wes Burns does well to keep possession alive and the ref awards a penalty that Ched Evans coolly finishes in the bottom left corner.

Wycombe take the lead!

GOAL! 2' That was fast! Ofoborh with a brilliant first-time strike that leaves Cairns with no chance as the visitors get off to the perfect start!
