Late Adebayo Akinfenwa header edges victory for Wycombe

Adebayo Akinfenwa's 89th-minute header snatched the points for Wycombe as they defeated fellow promotion contenders Swindon 3-2 in a thrilling contest.
The big striker's late intervention means the Chairboys stay third in League Two and in the automatic promotion places, but the Robins drop to sixth, five points adrift.
The match got off to a sensational start as Marc Richards tapped in for Swindon in the second minute after Matt Taylor's shot was saved by Scott Brown.
But Wycombe immediately levelled through a terrific strike by Luke O'Nien before taking the lead inside 10 minutes, as Paris Cowan-Hall squared the ball for Craig Mackail-Smith to roll into an empty net.
Swindon then drew level after 61 minutes through a thunderous free-kick by Taylor from 35 yards out that flew into the top corner.
After having an earlier 'goal' ruled out, Akinfenwa was the Chairboys' hero late on when he beat Robins 'keeper Reice Charles-Cook to O'Nien's cross to head in via the underside of the bar.
