Richard Kone’s first league goal helped Wycombe recover from 2-0 down to earn a point against 10-man Fleetwood in an entertaining 2-2 draw at Adams Park.

Fleetwood looked in control thanks to first-half goals from Promise Omochere and Jayden Stockley but they suffered a huge setback on the stroke of half-time when Omochere was sent off.

Wycombe made their numerical advantage count after the break to pull a goal back through Garath McCleary’s penalty before Kone salvaged a point with seven minutes left.

The Cod Army, looking to move off the bottom of League One, took the lead in the 14th minute when Omochere poked home Harry Boyes’ smart low cross.

Stockley nodded home his fifth goal of the season to make it 2-0 after the half-hour but Fleetwood’s hopes of victory were hit just before the break when a reckless lunge on David Wheeler earned Omochere a second yellow card.

Wycombe upped the pressure in the second half and won a penalty in the 53rd minute when a goal-bound strike deflected off an arm, but Luke Leahy was denied fantastically by Jay Lynch from 12 yards.

Another handball gifted the Chairboys a second chance from the spot in the 62nd minute, and this time McCleary confidently dispatched his effort into the roof of the net.

January signing Kone saw a header ruled out for offside as Wycombe pushed for an equaliser, but his smart finish with time running out earned the hosts a point.
