Wycombe   3 - 6   Bristol Rovers

Wycombe 3-6 Bristol Rovers

Jo Kuffour's excellent hat-trick helped Bristol Rovers seal a thrilling nine-goal game in the area quarter-finals of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The striker headed in early on before exposing Wycombe's offside trap.

Scott Rendell then headed home for Wanderers before further strikes from Kuffour and Chris Lines and a Jeff Hughes penalty sealed Rovers' win.

Rendell sealed his own treble with a penalty and a late header, before Ben Swallow fired in the visitors' sixth.

Wycombe came out at the start of the second half all guns blazing and Rendell's fine finish from Ben Strevens' cross looked to have given them a fighting chance.

But their defence could not deal with the pace of Kuffour, who completed his hat-trick and the home side's off-form back-line fell apart with Lines finishing from Hughes' ball.

Alan Bennett fouled Kuffour as Hughes fired home the penalty to grab Rovers' fifth.

The hosts kept battling away with Rendell completing an excellent hat-trick, as he fired home from the spot after being fouled by Lines before nodding in Matt Bloomfield's cross.

Swallow then caught Wycombe on the break to add Rovers' sixth and seal an impressive away victory.


Wycombe Wanderers boss Gary Waddock told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"Defensively it wasn't our best performance. With the attacking threat they've got, opportunities came and they took them.

"It's an incredible scoreline, it just goes to show we can score goals.

"But it shows that defensively tonight we weren't good enough as individuals and as a unit."

Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope told BBC Radio Bristol:

"The skipper (Stuart Campbell) immediately gave us the competitive edge that you look for, and others then followed suit.

"He (Ben Swallow) showed a fantastic bit of quality for the goal but we have talked about his defensive duties as well.

"It is a competition we're taking seriously and as it gets closer it gets more interesting."
