Thomason | It's A Great Feeling


Midfielder George Thomason expressed his delight after finding the back of the net and ultimately claiming maximum points at Wycombe.

Thomason found himself on the end of a superb pass from Josh Sheehan before coolly lofting the ball home to give the Whites a 2-0 half-time lead as he registered just his third goal in a Wanderers' shirt.

“The gaffer has challenged me to add more goals and assists to my game and it’s something that I want to do myself," said Thomason, who is embracing a more advanced midfield role in the Whites' line-up.

"I feel I’ve been good in the first two thirds and that’s a strong part of my game but now I want to add more numbers to my game. It’s a great feeling to be on the scoresheet and hopefully this is the first of many more.”

Thomason's strike added to Paris Maghoma's first goal for the club put Ian Evatt's men in control at Adams Park.

But they then had to dig deep to overcome a Wycombe fightback with late goals from Eoin Toal and Aaaron Morley giving the Whites a thrilling 4-2 victory and fourth win in five games. 

“I think it was a game which had many emotions in it, to be honest," added Thomason.

“First half I thought was excellent at times and the way we found each other in pockets of space, trusted each other and got the goals was really good.

“In the second half it was almost backs to the wall and trying to hold on and win but after they got back into the game it was a big blow and I was thinking ‘We’ve got to liven up here’.

“It was pure elation when Toaly’s (Eoin Toal) header went in for the third and then we added the cherry on top with Azza’s (Morley) penalty and we’re all very happy.”

After showing their resolve to shift the momentum of the game with only minutes remaining, it was clear to see how much that meant to everyone in the Wanderers' camp.

And with a fantastic 750 fans make the long trip to Buckinghamshire to back the Whites, it was a journey rewarded with a first ever win at Wycombe to make the perfect start to a week on the road which continues with a trip to Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

“The togetherness within the group and with the fans as well is excellent. The determination and pride really saw us through. We were so positive on the pitch with each other and we pull each other through the tough times," said Thomason.

“At full time you could see how happy we were as a collective because traditionally Wycombe has always been a really tough place for us to come and win. We showed two different sides to us with the quality in the first half and grit in the second half.

“In this league it’s about putting little runs together and our full focus now is on Saturday and hopefully trying to go to Charlton, win another match and close that gap to the top two. Ultimately that’s where we want to be at the end of the season.

“I feel that there is a great confidence within the group at the moment as there’s no reason that we can’t carry that through to Saturday. Obviously it will be a different test against a good footballing side but I really do fancy us in any game at the moment.”
