Gillingham   0 - 2   Wycombe

Gillingham 0-2 Wycombe

Gillingham 0-2 Wycombe

Wycombe extended their unbeaten away record with a win at Gillingham.

The home side nearly took the lead when Chris Palmer's cross was headed against his own post by Wanderers defender Chris Westwood.

Instead, the visitors went ahead when good work from Gareth Ainsworth allowed Stuart Beavon to drill home.

Gillingham went close through Cody McDonald and Adebayo Akinfenwa, but Wycombe sealed victory when Kevin Betsy fired in from the edge of the area.

Wycombe's fourth away win of the campaign lifts them to fifth, within three points of the automatic promotion places.

Gillingham's second home defeat of the season, their fourth game without a win, drops them to 20th in League Two - just three points clear of danger.


Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler said:

"The response of the fans was not good. I can understand the fans' frustrations. The players didn't go and not try, we're just in a rut.

"Do we give up on it or work through it? I know what I want to do and I know what I want the players to do.

"The players are lacking confidence at the moment. It's frustrating but we have to turn things round."
