Gareth Ainsworth

“Absolutely gutted. We’ve given the game away. We deserved our lead; their keeper’s had a great game to keep them in it. And the finish was so disappointing.”

“We’re well and truly in a scrap to stay in the league. We always have been this season. But the next result needs to be a positive one.”
