Gareth Ainsworth

"I am just glad we have stopped the rot. We have broken some good club records this season and a long run of defeats would have been an unwanted one.

"My intention was to come here and not lose but I am disappointed we didn't win as, after we took the lead, it was a soft goal to concede.

"We have to learn lessons from that and we do have some rookie players but we need to learn quickly.

"I gave the players a rollicking at half-time as we hadn't tested their keeper and thankfully I got a reaction.

"We cannot do without Bayo scoring and I am pleased for the 97 Wycombe fans who made the trip as he gave them something to smile about.

"Hopefully our bad spell is now over and we can build on this and finish the season strongly. We need a mammoth effort to get us back where we want to be in the top seven."

John Coleman (Accrington Manager)

"They hadn't come near us in the first half and then we fell asleep for two minutes and they scored two goals. I am furious.

"Everyone knew their jobs, we had been through it in training and they didn't do them.

"Akinfenwa is a good player but we had kept him quiet in the first half and then we allowed him to be effective after the break as we allowed balls into our box. We had battered them for 45 minutes and then we needed a great header from Matty to get us back in it and then we were unlucky to hit the post. It could have gone either way at the end but I do not think a draw was a fair result on the balance of chances. We should have won."
