LMA PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: WANDERERS WIN IT IN STOPPAGE TIME

The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett, Barry Fry Paul Ince and Rachel Yankey, has determined that the LMA Performance of the Week Award, in association with Sky Sports Soccer Saturday, should go to Wycombe Wanderers for their 2-1 victory against Birmingham City on Wednesday 4th November 2020. 

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,500 competitive matches in professional football.

Manager Gareth Ainsworth and Assistant Manager Richard Dobson will jointly receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LMA Performance of the Week trophy.
