Wycombe's 46-year-old goalkeeping coach Barry Richardson was forced into action 15 minutes into his side's match at second-placed Plymouth - and he kept a clean sheet.

Wanderers won the match 1-0 and it was the first time Plymouth have not scored at Home Park all season.

Richardson's last professional match was back in 2005, but after an injury to first-choice keeper Alex Lynch, he was forced to come on during the League Two match.

Plymouth were not impressed by the visitors' tactics, if this tweet from the club is anything to go by: "Wycombe came here to waste time, niggle and get under our skin. They did it and they won. See you next week."
