Gareth Ainsworth

"We never give up here and they don't know when they are beaten.

"That was a reverse from two weeks ago and we definitely deserved to win the game again.

"I am disappointed with the goals conceded here as they were sloppy but we scored a fantastic three goals.

"Harriman's was an excellent finish and Nathan's goal almost broke the net so I am delighted."

"Ebere [Eze] was brilliant. He had two assists and shown people what he is all about.

"He still has a lot to learn and having him here is special. I said to him at the end this is the start of your career and he is a phenomenal talent."

"Bayo [Akinfenwa] will fight and scrap for this team and he is there for the lads on and off the pitch.

"He takes the focus of two or three players and that allows the guys to get space which gets the opposition in trouble.

"However, if you don't double up on Akinfenwa you will be in trouble so it is a great conundrum we have for opposition teams."

Nathan Tyson

"It was brilliant to score at the end there. I still believed we could win and we didn't let our heads dropped. We showed so much character and it really paid off.

"I didn't want to come inside as I wanted to hang out wide. Ebere gave me the ball and I knocked it and went and I thought I would have a crack.

"It brought back so many memories. Celebrating in front of the fans was so good. The supporters were fantastic and it is so refreshing to hear them singing my name.

"I have to praise the boys as well. They were simply fantastic and I am so pleased the gaffer brought me back. To have that happen was amazing and hopefully there will be a lot more memories."

"Ebere [Eze] has unbelievable talent. I don't want his head to get too big and he has the ability to go a lot further.

"Ebere has to learn the game a little bit, especially defensively. He needs to be aware of who is around but his technique and his ability to breeze past players is phenomenal.

"As long as he keeps grounded and keeps his feet on the ground, I am tipping him to go very far.
