Fleetwood Town 1-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Paddy Madden left it late to snatch a point for Fleetwood as they fought back to draw 1-1 with Wycombe at Highbury.

It was a quiet affair in the first half but it was the hosts with the majority of the chances.

Wes Burns rattled the crossbar with Madden, Paul Coutts and Peter Clarke all spurning chances for Town.

But they would rue those missed opportunities as Wycombe broke the deadlock in the second half.

Former Burnley and Blackpool goalkeeper Matt Gilks had replaced Alex Cairns to make his debut but he was beaten by Adebayo Akinfenwa in the 56th minute.

The forward managed to out-muscle Fleetwood's giant centre-half Harry Souttar at the back post and bundled home Alex Pattison's cross from the left.

Despite losing his clean sheet, Gilks was on hand to keep Town in the game late on.

He tipped over a dipping Pattison effort from distance and then somehow hooked away a Darius Charles header as the visitors went for the jugular.

Gilks stopped a late Alex Samuel strike and Fleetwood eventually got their leveller.

It was Madden, restored to the starting line-up, who popped up with a last-gasp equaliser.

The Irishman made it three goals in five games as he poked home substitute Ash Hunter's cross at the second attempt in the 89th minute.
