Wycombe Wanderers won their second successive game under caretaker manager Keith Ryan with a 1-0 defeat of Bristol Rovers.

The Pirates were sunk thanks to a 54th minute penalty from Nathan Tyson.

The first half produced a number of opportunities for both sides, but neither team possessed the necessary quality to take advantage.

After 22 minutes Rovers striker Junior Agogo fed Stuart Campbell who blasted over the top from six yards.

Wycombe too had their chances; Ian Stonebridge collected a bad goal kick from Kevin Miller but the forward was crowded out in the area.

Ex-Celtic winger Steve Guppy drilled in a 25th minute corner which was headed over by Ryan and Gus Uhlenbeek fired a 20-yard shot which whistled just over.

The only goal of the game came on 54 minutes. Tyson was clipped in the area by Christian Edwards and he picked himself up and scored emphatically with the penalty.

Stonebridge wasted a glorious chance to double the home side's lead when he headed over from six yards and Kevin Miller brilliantly kept out a Roger Johnson header, both from Guppy crosses as the ex-England star showed his class.

As the game wore on Rovers threw more men into attack in an attempt to salvage a point and Agogo fizzed a 20-yard shot just wide and substitute Lewis Haldane steered a volley from a Robbie Ryan cross just wide on 81 minutes.
