Ainsworth slams 'unprofessional' Blues

Bucks Free Press: Gareth Ainsworth was unhappy with a lack of professionalism from his players Gareth Ainsworth was unhappy with a lack of professionalism from his players

DISAPPOINTED Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth said a lack of professionalism cost his side against Exeter - and he hopes his players have a bad night mulling over a defeat.

Normally in his post match press conferences an upbeat Ainsworth emphasises the positives, but today he said he 'lost his rag' at his players over aspects of their play that upset him during their loss against ten men.

Joel Grant had a penalty saved and Kortney Hause scored an own goal late on to condemn Wanderers to defeat and Ainsworth admitted his side hadn't done enough to deserve to beat City.

The Chairboys chief said: "I've said to them be disappointed and have a bad night tonight. You have to learn not to have this. Enjoy the good things and feel happy and have great nights, but when you get beaten make sure you have a bad night, because you teach yourself not to have too many of those.

"I've said a few things that will lead to them not having a good night tonight.

"I'm really gutted for the boys because they have put so much in lately, but today I've let them have it a little bit. Although we didn't do enough to win the game besides the penalty, a lack of concentration and professionalism has cost us again.

"We didn't attack like we have been doing at home. I lost my rag a bit with a couple of tactic things - it's unprofessional.

"Playing against ten men, sometimes you relax a tiny bit thinking you've won the game.

"It's a learning thing for a few of the young players. We seemed to drop a bit deeper second half - I don't know why. It's something we need to address."

Ainsworth added: "It's the strongest squad I've put out for a while and we got beaten by ten men."
