Wycombe come from behind to seal automatic promotion

Wycombe Wanderers celebrated promotion after they fought back to win 2-1 at relegated Chesterfield.
The home side led through a Michael Harriman own goal but Nathan Tyson replied before Dominic Gape fired in the winner in front of 1,100 Wycombe fans.
Chesterfield almost silenced the away fans in the 19th minute when Jerome Binnom-Williams cut the ball back from the left and Kristian Dennis hit a left foot shot from the edge of the area that was brilliantly saved by Scott Brown.
Wycombe responded with a 25-yard free-kick that Aaron Ramsdale turned behind but Chesterfield struck first in the 39th minute when Bradley Barry's shot hit the inside of a post and went in off Michael Harriman.
But Wycombe equalised in stoppage time when Chesterfield failed to clear and Tyson turned in a low cross at the near post.
Ramsdale saved a Sido Jombati header in the 48th minute and the 'keeper did even better when he came out to deny Craig Mackail-Smith in the 69th minute.
But Wycombe's pressure told in the 76th minute when a corner was only half cleared and Gape's shot was deflected past Ramsdale.
