In the end, it was easy – a routine stroll past a willing, but limited Wycombe side. A well taken goal from the loan winger in the first half settled the nerves and a header from the loan Ranger in the second made sure.
In a disturbingly un-Wednesday like performance, it never really looked in doubt and it was pretty much party time in the stands for the whole 90 minutes, with paddling pools, beachballs and comedy outfits aplenty.
