Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth bemoaned the conditions as Wycombe went down by a solitary goal at a windswept County Ground against Swindon Town.

Harry Smith scored the only goal on 15 minutes, volleying home Matt Taylor's deep cross.

Wycombe threw the kitchen sink at Swindon in the second half but ultimately fell short as both teams felt the affects of Storm Brian.

Ainsworth said: "It was tough for both teams. Neither side showed much quality. The wind played a massive factor. In the first half they camped on our half and in the second we camped in their half.

"Goals change games and they made it work for them. I think we had more shots but they were wayward.

"They made it count early on and that was the tale of the game but there wasn't much to shout about after that.

"It was disappointing and tough to take. The boys have been fantastic on the road for me but it wasn't going to be today but we go again next Saturday and I am looking forward to it."

Ainsworth was only able to field five substitutes due to the growing injury list and defensive options were limited due to Sido Jombati and Anthony Stewart being out injured.

He added: "Both picked up injuries and it is hard work. We definitely hope to have both those guys back for next week's game.

"There is every chance that they can come back for the next game and this is positive for us and we pick ourselves up."

There were two positives for Ainsworth as Scott Brown produced an excellent display in goal in tough conditions and Dominic Gape slotted in well in an unfamiliar role at right-back.

The 44-year-old said: "Browny made some excellent saves. Shots on target Swindon outdone us and Scott was brilliant first half and his kicking was magnificent.

"Dom did well. I have seen him play there for Southampton many times. He is good and quick enough to do it. I thought he was an ample replacement and with Sido and Anthony out he showed his quality."
