Gareth Ainsworth

"It was a game of two halves. We were easily the better side in the second half but you can't give away two goals like we did in the first half.

"Bayo has come up with his 10th of the season, but we have left ourselves with a mountain to climb with a poor first half display."

"We were terrible in the first half and I have not said that this season. It wasn't us.

"We played as individuals and not as a team. The balls forward were hopeful and the marking for both goals we can't let happen.

"The second goal wasn't unbelievably clever either. It was just the basics and we had no-one with him and he easily slotted in the goal.

"There were mistakes there and once you get yourself two goals down, you have a mountain climb.

"We nearly climbed it but nearly isn't good enough. The second half will gloss over what we did in the first half but not for me.

"We weren't good enough first half and we need to make sure we start games like we did in the second half.

"It is a tough place to come but it is three points dropped. We wanted to win this match but fair play to Jim Bentley, he has got us again but we have to put it right next week against Crawley."

"There was a thought about starting Adam but there is pace through their side too and Adam had a hamstring a couple of weeks ago.

"He did come on last week but felt a little bit sore and resting him was the right thing but the outcome doesn't always work and another week under his belt will do him the world of good.

"I am looking forward to working with the squad and places are up for grabs now."
