Adebayo Akinfenwa helped fire Wycombe to their first League Two win of the season as they beat Port Vale at Vale Park.First-half strikes from Akinfenwa and Paris Cowan-Hall put Vale on the back foot in their first league game at home since being relegated from League One last season.Gareth Ainsworth’s men made the best possible start when Akinfenwa nodded in a Joe Jacobson free-kick with just two minutes on the clock.

The Chairboys doubled their lead 10 minutes later when Cowan-Hall cut in from the left side of the box and curled an effort past Valiants keeper Sam Hornby.Wycombe made it three when a Luke O’Nien volley at goal was met by the head of Akinfenwa, who doubled his tally for the day.Vale got a goal back in the 88th minute when substitute Dan Turner headed in a Lawrie Wilson cross.Two minutes later fellow substitute Ben Whitfield made it a nervy finish for the visitors, smashing a shot into the top left corner, but it proved in vain.Report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsPort Vale12Hornby2Wilson6KayBooked at 77mins24Smith3Denton7Myers-Harness8PughSubstituted forReevesat 60’minutes28de Freitas11MontañoSubstituted forWhitfieldat 79’minutes9Pope22PykeSubstituted forTurnerat 60’minutesSubstitutes5Davis18Reeves19Turner21Gibbons23Boot31Whitfield32TongeWycombe1BrownBooked at 50mins16Harriman2Jombati6El-Abd3Jacobson7SaundersSubstituted forBloomfieldat 69’minutes4Gape17O’Nien23TysonSubstituted forFreemanat 80’minutes20Akinfenwa12Cowan-HallSubstituted forSouthwellat 25’minutesSubstitutes8Bean9Hayes10Bloomfield13Richardson15Southwell21Müller22FreemanReferee:Craig HicksAttendance:4,909Match StatsHome TeamPort ValeAway TeamWycombePossessionHome43%Away57%ShotsHome7Away14Shots on TargetHome3Away10CornersHome4Away3FoulsHome21Away14Live TextPosted at Match ends, Port Vale 2, Wycombe Wanderers 3.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, Port Vale 2, Wycombe Wanderers 3.Posted at 90’+5′ Attempt blocked.
