Jon Obika came off the bench to inspire Yeovil to a 4-0 victory over Wycombe at Huish Park.

The visitors offered stubborn resistance for much of the game but a flurry of late goals saw them slide to a heavy defeat.

Yeovil took the lead after 36 minutes when midfielder Kieran Murtagh met a left-wing corner with a perfect volley - giving Wanderers' goalkeeper Scott Shearer little chance.

Wycombe had their chances to equalise after the break, but on-loan Yeovil keeper Alex McCarthy made a number of superb saves to preserve his side's advantage.

Obika made an immediate impact in the 70th minute when he collected a quick throw-in and crossed from the left for JP Kalala to apply the finish from close range.

Two minutes later it was Obika's turn to score as he burst through the defence with a perfectly-timed run before firing past Shearer.

Yeovil added a fourth when Andy Welsh, another substitute, crossed for Sam Williams to slot home.
