The Opposition View - Burton Albion
Following yesterday's impressive 4-1 win over Burton Albion, here are some views on the game from the Brewers' manager Paul Peschisolido and a few of their fans.
Peschisolido was refreshingly gracious in defeat.
"Wycombe were excellent in every department," he told the Derby Telegraph.
"They wanted it more, they were better on the ball, they passed it better and they closed down better."
"I think we realise that we're nowhere near as good as they are. That's why they're fourth in the table and we're where we are."
Speaking to BBC Radio Derby, he said: "We were beaten by a much better team. I wanted people to dig deep today, but it just didn't happen, and let's give credit to them, they're an excellent side."
"I don't like losing football games and I certainly don't like getting battered in football games and that was the case today."
The Burton fans were a bit downhearted and grumbled about the pitch, but they knew their team had been thoroughly outplayed on the night.

'We have never played well on rubbish pitches as we don't do hoofball. Clearly Wycombe are experts in the genre.'
'I used to play football on Sunday morning quagmires and our old manager told us whack it out to the wings when it was muddy down the middle as there was actually grass down the side of the pitch. I should get him to call Pesch. Hoofing the ball up to Zola is an awful tactic and we're too good a team to sink to that level. We don't have that problem at home because we've got a great pitch to play on.'
'Legzdins was unlucky to concede four. The punches he made while under immense pressure were good - shame the ball kept flying back towards his goal.'
'Wycombe were big, fit, fast and well-organised. We were nowhere near on all counts. As for Moore - I've seen a bus with a better turning circle.'

'Peschy changes a defence that has only conceded one goal in three games, brings Moore in and we concede four.'
'Two more defeats and the Pesch out threads will start. It's too late now whatever happens. I think we're in for a bumpy ride to the end of the season. It doesn't seem that long ago we were being tipped for the play-offs. Definitely a relegation battle now - I'm sure most of us would give our right arm for mid table mediocrity!!
'Well that was crap. I'll have a pizza and get off to bed with Mrs porky, see what comes up.'

'The pitch wasn't great and we may not have played fantastically but in my opinion we were beaten by a much better side, and over the course of the two games we've played, I would say that Wycombe were the best side we have seen in League Two this season.'
