In the wake of yesterday's thrilling 3-2 victory, here are some views on the game from the opposition's assistant-manager Karl Robinson and a few of their customers.
"At times this year we have played magnificent football and just not got the rub of the green, and there were spells in this game where we were much the better side, but for the last 20 minutes we weren't," Robinson told his club's official website.
Referring to Kevin Betsy's late winner, he said: "I would call it a lack of match understanding at the right times. You don't try and play your way out of trouble with 95 minutes gone, you just clear it. But I thought the players gave it everything today."
Their customers were surprisingly gracious in defeat.
The following extracts are taken from The Moocamp, MKD Forum, BBC606 and The Football Forum.
'A fair result, due to the fact they wanted it more than us.'
'Wycombe thoroughly outplayed us in the second half and they're second-bottom of the division so that was disappointing.'
'At least it was better than Tuesday. But the fans need to put in the effort as well. The Wycombe fans could be heard all match. Why should the team try if the fans don't?'
'Fair play to Wycombe - particularly their positive attitude in the last 15 minutes. Fantastic support. Hope they stay up.'
'What a pile of cr*p, no commitment, no desire, no passion. They wanted it more than us, but they were not a good team.'
'Decent game to watch. We pulled it back to 2-2 and then decided to try and shut out a team who needed the win. We sat too deep and asked them to score again and they obliged.'
'As angry as I am, we have to congratulate Wycombe. They came here hungry, they wanted goals, they never stopped fighting, and you really have to say it - they were superb, and on that performance, I hope they stay up.'
'The Wycombe fans and a fair few of our own rightly condemned Gueret's time wasting and I'm at a loss to explain why it was necessary at 2-2 in a meaningless end of season game. Maybe it's become so ingrained in how we play the game that players struggle to do anything other than run down the clock?'
'I thought we battled really well under the circumstances against a Chairboys side that are fighting for their survival. It's just a shame that some of the players and a large majority of the home support were not up for this game.'
Just Dons wrote:
'Well done to The Chairboys today. A deserved victory even though it looked like it would be a draw. Your fans were marvelous and if you play like that for your remaining games you have a good chance of escaping by the skin of your teeth.'
'I was not unhappy to see Wycombe win as I would like to have the derby to look forward to next season. They never gave up and bust a gut to get their winner on an energy-sapping hot afternoon.'
