WANDERERS boss Gary Waddock is hoping their last-gasp leveller against Shrewsbury could be a sign their season could be changing for the better.
It was Wycombe's sixth draw in their opening eight League Two games.
But two of those draws, at Northampton and Accrington, came about after the Blues conceded late equalisers.
Against Shrewsbury, it was their turn to taste the other side of late drama when Lewis Montrose scored in stoppage time to earn a 2-2 home draw.
It leaves Waddock's promotion hopefuls sitting in 13th place in the table but just three points from sixth spot.
And with struggling Barnet visiting on Tuesday night, the Wycombe boss is hoping to ditch their 'draw specialist' tag this season.
He said: "At the moment we are not getting what we want. Draws are no good to us at the minute. "I am frustrated that we have only got a point because we want to win games. But that goal might be the turning point for us.
"Moments like that can change the course of a season."
Wycombe took the lead against the Shrews through an Andy Sandell free-kick rocket on the hour mark before Tom Bradshaw and Lionel Ainsworth looked to have sealed an away win for Graham Turner's men.
But, after a poor first-half, Wycombe got the draw they probably deserved thanks to Montrose.
"I think the performance second-half was slightly better and we probably deserved that slice of luck at the end," said Waddock.
"First-half we didn't play too well but credit to the players because they kept going. To get a goal so late in the game shows the spirit and the character in the group.
"At the moment we are finding it a bit frustrating. But we will come through it and the only way to do that is with sheer hard work and commitment and in the second-half the players showed that."
