Gareth Ainsworth

“The performance was there. I can’t be more proud. My boys were superb. I thought we were the better team, we should have had a bigger lead, and it’s a shame we couldn’t hold on.”

“Tuesday [at home to Accrington] will be different but I’m asking the fans to please come down in numbers again and support us.”


"It is hard to look through the result and look at what happened at the end of the game as I really did think we were the better side. It is harsh. It is a mistake for their goal and it happens and I have immense pride for the boys.

"We have some awesome players and hearts that beat like lions and they were magnificent from the first whistle to the last. It is unfortunate. It feels like a loss but a point against Sunderland, both home and away, is a real message that Wycombe are here to compete. We are hear to give it everything and I am really proud of the boys."

Commenting on Matt Bloomfield's 500th appearance for Wanderers

"Lee Cattermole is a phenomenal player but you couldn't have split him and Matt. Blooms has really done his 500th game absolute justice. What a guy and what a player and what a great leader he was out there. It is unfortunate we couldn't hold on for [Matt].

"Alex [Samuel] has gone from strength to strength and I think he is going to be worth a lot of money the way he plays. He is becoming a real asset for us and what a guy he is. He is a great lad and deserved to be on the winning side."

Commenting on the incident around the dug-outs shortly after Sunderland had equalised

"It seems to have erupted. I think the injury time went up. What I recall is a ball went over and one of the Sunderland staff tried to get the ball back in play quickly and I didn't see too much more than that. I was concerned with stopping my players getting involved but I am hoping it isn't anything more than a passionate response by both benches."
