Gareth Ainsworth hailed the performance of Jamal Blackman against Blackpool on Saturday after the goalkeeper produced a series of superb saves to give Wycombe a vital point.

The on-loan Chelsea stopper also saved an 87th minute from Brad Potts after Max Muller was adjudged to have fouled Nathan Delfouneso in the area.

Ainsworth was delighted to see his number one back to his best. He said: "Jamal is Premier League quality.

"You look at some of the keepers in the Premier League and Jamal could do what they do.

"I think he has learnt a lot with us. His kicking especially, as in League Two that is what you have to do.

"He is a great lad. He listens, he is humble and he fits right in with his humility and he works so hard.

"I am really pleased we have got him as we needed him there."

Overall, the results went Wycombe's way as they now sit just three points off the playoffs.

Ainsworth added: "I am pleased with a point. We had a couple cleared off the line and we had a couple of scrambles but nothing too clear-cut.

"Bayo won a lot of headers and flick-ons but we just didn't get anything to fall to us.

"That was the tale of the game. We nullified each other and Blackpool are a good side and for me it is a point gained."

However, on the injury front, Ainsworth received a blow with the news that defender Anthony Stewart could well be out for the rest of the season with a knee ligament injury.

He commented: "It looks bad for Anthony and it is a blow for us.

"Having said that we have a great medical team there is no reason why they can't work a miracle and get Anthony back before the end of the season.

"It is time for the others to step up and fill his boots but they are big boots to fill."
