Gareth Ainsworth

“Give me that performance for five games, and teams will not live with you. That will keep us in this league.”

"It is really hard to take. I would take a 1-0 with a rubbish performance all day but deep down I won't because I put my name to that performance.

"I can't ask the boys to give me any more than they gave here and to come away with nothing is shocking. They stuck their chance in and we had a glorious chance [Kashket in the second half] and the keeper knew nothing about it but the stats are in our favour. It is just really tough to take. I have said to the boys I put my name to that performance but you have to do that for five games now.

"That desire, that workrate. If they give that for the next five games, teams will not live with them. People questioned our fight at the start of the season. The one thing we have is fight and it is that bit of luck we are missing at the moment."

On the penalty claim in the second half when Adebayo Akinfenwa's shot appeared to strike the hand of a Charlton defender.

"The referee said he didn't have time to react but if it has hit his hand then by the letter of the law it should be a penalty but we are just not getting those at the moment. I am hoping that in these crucial games coming up now we do
get what we deserve."
