Wycombe butcher Bantams to book place at Wembley

2024/02/21 22:29

Wycombe dramatically reached the final of the EFL Trophy on Wednesday night thanks to a stoppage time matchwinner from substitute Matt Butcher.

Butcher chose the perfect time to score his first goal for the Chairboys - his fine half-volley arrowing into the bottom corner of the goal with the prospect of a penalty shoot-out looming. 

Hosts Bradford enjoyed the better chances during the contest, but were unable to breach the backline of their Buckinghamshire opponents - and Butcher's late sucker punch sent the Bantams spinning out of the competition. 

Wycombe will now play Peterborough United in the final at Wembley on Sunday 7 April.

Wow, what a game! Incredible performance from Wycombe to secure their spot in the final. Butcher's goal was a thing of beauty, perfectly placed to seal the win. Commiserations to Bradford, they gave it their all but couldn't break through Wycombe's solid defense. Can't wait for the final at Wembley, come on Chairboys!

As a passionate Wycombe fan, I am overjoyed with this win! Butcher's goal was truly an incredible moment and it just goes to show the determination and never-give-up attitude of our team. We may have had some close calls during the match, but our defense held strong and Butcher's goal sealed the deal. Can't wait for the final at Wembley - let's bring home the trophy!

Wow! What a stunning victory for Wycombe! Butcher's goal in stoppage time was nothing short of magical. Unfortunate for Bradford, but what a way to seal the win for Wycombe. Can't wait to see them at Wembley against Peterborough.
