Exeter moved up to third in League Two as Danny Coles's back-heel secured victory over Wycombe Wanderers.

Gareth Ainsworth's deflected 25-yard drive put the visitors ahead before Jimmy Keohane, on his Football League debut, set up Arron Davies to level.

Wycombe went ahead again when Joel Grant crossed for Dean Morgan to nod in at the back post.

Jamie Cureton's 15-yard shot drew the hosts level and Coles secured Exeter the three points with a clever finish.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wycombe manager Gary Waddock told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"The players did very well and we should be coming away with something from the game.

"Unfortunately, we're not, but we now have to continue to perform at this level.

"We have to be consistent. The players have to take care of the performance - that's their job - and the results will then come.

"Hopefully they'll come sooner rather than later."
