LOAN WATCH: McCarthy helps Wycombe advance in FA Cup

By SFC Media time Mon 07 Dec Club

Jason McCarthy played the full game as Wycombe Wanderers won 2-1 at Millwall to reach the Emirates FA Cup third round.

The Saints defender started at right-back for the League 2 Chairboys, helping them stun their League 1 opponents and ensure they will be in the hat for tonight’s draw, alongside his parent club.

McCarthy was involved in Wycombe’s 94th-minute winner, sending forward a free-kick into the area that found Aaron Pierre, who showed excellent skill to control the ball, beat his man and square for Michael Harriman to convert.

Earlier, Wycombe had taken a 50th-minute lead at The Den, when Matt Bloomfield lofted a ball over the top of the hosts’ defence for skipper Paul Hayes to slot home.

Ben Thompson looked to have earned Millwall a replay with a 25-yard strike that found the bottom corner seven minutes later, but Harriman struck deep into added time to send the visitors through.

In the Championship, striker Sam Gallagher came off the bench in the 66th minute for MK Dons, as they lost 2-0 at Brentford.

Lasse Vibe’s 20th-minute header put the hosts in front, before Alan Judge wrapped up the win in the 71st minute, giving new manager Dean Smith victory in his first match in charge of the Bees.

The result sees Dons slip one place in the table, to 20th.

Elsewhere, Lloyd Isgrove was an unused substitute for Barnsley, as they beat Wigan 4-2 on penalties to reach the northern area final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Former Saints loanee Adam Hamill put Barnsley in front at the DW Stadium just before half-time, only for Will Grigg to equalise shortly after the break. Ivan Toney then restored the visitors’ lead, before Grigg levelled matters again eight minutes from time, but the Tykes prevailed in the shootout.

They will meet either Fleetwood or Morecambe, who play tomorrow night, in the area final for a place at Wembley.
