Wycombe 1-2 Sheffield Wed

Wycombe's 15-year-old Jordon Ibe was booked for celebrating his first senior goal with his family in the stands as his side lost to Sheffield Wednesday.

Jose Semedo tapped the Owls in front when he reacted quickest after Ryan Lowe's shot hit the post.

But Ibe equalised on his first Football League start with a shot from 18 yards.

Lowe, starting his first game for the Owls, converted Semedo's inswinging cross to win it as Wycombe had Gareth Ainsworth sent off for two bookings.

Ainsworth, 38, had made 116 career appearances before his new team-mate Ibe was even born.

The game also saw Owls boss Gary Megson sent to the stands late on for his protests as he tried to get defender Rob Jones back on the pitch after receiving treatment for a cut.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Wycombe manager Gary Waddock told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Ibe given chance on merit - Waddock

"I really do feel for everyone at the moment because the players have shown 100% commitment and are just not getting the rub of the green.

"It didn't help when we went down to 10 players. They have got experienced players and an experienced manager as well. They are a massive football club.

On Jordon Ibe's goal:

"If it was a senior player, you would be saying what a fantastic goal. He is 15 and to do that your debut tells you the quality the lad has got.

"We just want to make sure he goes on an fulfils the potential he has got and possibly he could go and play at the highest level.

"He trains with us and we see the quality he has got. He is in the group on merit and he deserves his chance."

Sheffield Wednesday boss Gary Megson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

Megson sent off for 'stupid rule'

"I thought it was a terrific performance. We should have been one up in the first five minutes.

"We had a great start, were really on the front foot and scored a good goal from a surprising source.

"I know he's a young lad [Jordon Ibe] and it was a good strike from his point of view but we shouldn't be letting their goal in.

"At least we got ourselves a lead, hit the bar, had a decent goal chalked off for offside and after that we had chance after chance and didn't put them away, which made it a bit tenuous at the end."

On being sent to the stands:

"The fourth official was on at me for going to the wrong line. There's only two feet between them and I was getting a bit mixed up.

"Rob Jones came off with a cut - I've had worse cuts shaving then that - and they want him to have a new shirt and we've got our best header of a football off the pitch.

"I was getting the hump because I couldn't get him on the pitch. They [the officials] wanted him to have a new shirt, it's not the right shirt and I threw it down because it's not the right shirt and I got myself sent off."
