Following yesterday`s sobering 2-1 defeat at Adams Park against Bury, here are the views of their caretaker manager Ronnie Jepson and some of their supporters.
Jepson was delighted with his team's performance.
'First half it was a little bit scrappy but we were still making headway, but second half it was a fantastic response from the boys, tails were up'.
'We`ve had a great week at training, we were well prepared and we gave it everything we can' said Jepson.
'We are getting that team ethic which is what you need to be a successful football club`.
'Knott has been excellent this year, from Sunderland, so Andy Proctor did a great job in that respect, we were pleased with that`.
'Even if we had got a draw, you could see the effort they put in, but three points makes it all the sweeter'.
Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth was not impressed with his side`s second half display and blamed naivety for the defeat.
'We are young and sometimes we look young when we're playing and inexperienced and in the second half, we didn't play the right way. We aren't going to win every game and we didn't win that one today`.
'As good as we were in the first half, we were bad in the second half.
The Bury supporters were delighted at a long overdue win and believed their side earned their win.
The following extracts are taken from The Mighty Shakers Forum.
Scales of justice said: 'A proverbial game of two halves....! We were dreadful 1st half, no cohesion or pattern and too much hoof ball. We never threatened their goal. Second-half, we looked a different team. Mayor and Forrester linked up really well and caused them problems. The sending off didn't change the game, we were already on top at that stage, and we could and should have won more comfortably'.
Shakercoola said: 'Been to Wycombe several times and we rarely get much so this was good, but it seems they, like us, are not the team of a few years back'.
Mattchew75 said: 'Really chuffed we turned Wycombe over, never an easy place to go so it was a great result'.
Eaves_wig said: 'I was in the family stand (free for 4 year old and with some Wycombe supporting friends) and was right in front of the sending off, it was a full blooded challenge that probably went a bit wrong but I was surprised the ref whipped his card out so quickly, thought he'd been really lenient with fouls and pushes for most of the game, was expecting a yellow. Wycombe fans weren't happy. Come the end I wished we were over the other side with celebrating fans and players!'
RaddyShaker said: 'Nice touch from Wycombe with their personalised welcome notices in the away end. Trees around the ground were also very, err, Autumny. Good performance too, for a change, from the ref. He missed a couple of things, should have booked the full back marking Mayor and was a bit fussy at times but he kept control and wasn't swayed by the home fans who, on the other side of the ground, were watching a different game!!'
HuddersfieldTownFan said: 'Great result at a place where not many Teams will come away with a win'.
On Gareth Ainsworth`s post-match comments:
Alanlondon said: 'Good fairly balanced interview on BBC. Liked him as a player and like him as a manager (by the sound of this interview)'.
Bonobo said: 'He's the sort of manager I'd hoped would take over after KB (Kevin Blackwell) insofar as he identifies weaknesses, holds his hands up over mistakes, gives credit to the opposition, doesn't whinge about decisions going against him and has a good grasp of the modern game and tactics. He's like the opposite of KB, really! He's right in what he says about Matt Bloomfield, definitely not a dirty footballer. I think most players these days will roll around after a bad tackle, that's par for the course, and could probably be interpreted as 'making a meal of it' when it's a decision against you'.
Raddyshaker said: 'Not sure Beeley 'made a meal` of the challenge for the sending off!'
Surrey__exile said: 'Mr Ainsworth talked much more sense than the interviewer whose first question was '......the sending off changed everything...?... Let's not get carried away. It was a good second half performance against a rather mediocre (but aren't a good number of them in L2) team on the day. I very much doubt this team will be challenging at the top of the table. But safety should certainy be assured if the form of the second 45 minutes can be replicated'.
