Gareth Ainsworth

"The boys deserved that but Jamal Blackman was outstanding.

"He kept us in it at 1-0 and the save in the second half was one of the best saves I have seen all season.

"Jamal made a double save in the first half that possibly no other keeper in the league could do and no keeper in the league would have been able to do his second save.

"That is what he is paid to do. Like I keep saying he will play at the very top.

"Sam produced an absolute moment of genius to get the first goal and I am sure that will be shown quite a few times on the TV.

"It was great for him to open his account and I thought he had an excellent game and when the game opens up, he produces moment of brilliance.

"I thought we got it right today and the result says that as well. It is fantastic to be just two points off the playoffs at this stage.

"What a position to be in and I am really looking forward to Saturday's game against Doncaster."

"I thought Sido and Aaron handled [John Akinde] really well.

"Also we put Marcus Bean in front of him the first half just to give Akinde that little bit of front screen.

"We have had that come up against us a few times with Bayo and I thought it went well."

"The playoff dream is still alive and if we win the final three games, I am sure we will be in the playoffs. That is the intention."
