The Uganda forward secured maximum points for the Blues but it doesn’t change their relegation fate
Uche Ikpeazu scored the only goal as Wycombe Wanderers secured a 1-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth in Saturday’s Championship encounter.
The 26-year-old found the back of the net in the fourth minute to separate both teams as the Blues grabbed maximum points at Adams Park.
The effort took Ikpeazu’s tally to six goals after 30 Championship appearances this season but it didn’t stop Wycombe Wanderers from going down to League One.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side is at the bottom of the league table with 40 points after 45 games.
Although they are three points away from safety with a game remaining in the second division, Wycombe Wanderers have a -33 goal difference – the lowest in the league.
Ikpeazu played the entire duration alongside Zimbabwe’s Admiral Muskwe while his compatriot Jordan Zemura came on as a second-half substitute for Bournemouth.
