BBC3CR quotes via @wwfcofficial

“I’m so proud of the boys. They were fantastic. Scott Brown’s made some crucial saves. That’s four wins in a row and we’re creating something special.”

“That was a fantastic match. The boys gave absolutely everything. Luton are a very good side and they’ve got some class. We dug deep. Tyson’s been on fire in training and I only decided today to play him.”

“The fans were unbelievable from the first minute to the 99th. What a game.”

Plus from press session

"Nothing has been achieved yet. It is one game but it is nice to come to the league leaders. They were possibly looking at the fact they could pull away from fourth place and we can get into second place if we can win. I said to the boys before the game to go out there and be potentially what you are because the boys believe this year.

"They don't want to be underdogs but with Luton, we are a million miles away resource wise and they need to get out of this league and they will. I would put money on Luton getting promoted this season without a shadow of a doubt and that is what makes it even more special to come here with the resources we have and win.

"It is a nice result. Nathan Jones is a good manager. He was very passionate at our place when they beat us and that was a compliment and I said to the boys that people respect you and to go out and prove it."

"I won't name individuals as it was a true Wycombe performance but 'Browny' did pull off some cracking saves when we needed him to and the plan was put in place and executed nicely. 'Tys' was on fire in training this week and I had a feeling he would score. [Matt Bloomfield] said in the hotel before the game that he wasn't 100 per cent so I changed it up and put Paris at the tip of the diamond where 'Blooms' was going to be and put Nathan up front."
