Exeter City 0-2 Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe Wanderers midfielder Garry Thompson scored his third goal of the season

Wycombe went second in League Two by beating Exeter to end the Grecians' unbeaten home record this season.

Exeter bossed the first half and came close when Joel Grant fired over from 12 yards before having a penalty claim rejected when Jordan Moore-Taylor felt he had been pulled in the box.

But the visitors took the lead when left-back Joe Jacobson curled in a fine free-kick from 20 yards.

Garry Thompson's 57th-minute drilled effort sealed Wycombe's victory.

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Ainsworth on Exeter v Wycombe

"First half we weren't good enough - we were not at the races and we were lucky to go in 0-0 at half time. I wanted a reaction and I got a reaction.

"The boys really grasped what we wanted to do in the second half to see the game out.

"To come here and take all three points away from Devon is great and the lads deserved it for that second half."
