Police are investigating alleged racist abuse from members of the crowd towards Wycombe striker Adebayo Akinfenwa during the Sky Bet League Two match against Cambridge on Saturday. Akinfenwa highlighted the incidents in Wanderers' 2-1 win at the Cambs Glass Stadium on Twitter.

He wrote: "Good 3pts 2day, great support again. It's a shame that a small group of Cambridge fans focus on colour rather than the game #KickOutRacism."

The incident was also reported to the match referee, Trevor Kettle, Wycombe said.

Cambridge are investigating after communicating with Wycombe, and Cambridgeshire Police are working to identify those involved.
