Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has called for referees at League Two level to become full-time professionals after a foul in the build-up to Cheltenham's late equaliser was not given by referee Lee Collins.

No foul was awarded after what Wanderers claim was a blatant push on Ebere Eze by Cheltenham forward Mohamed Eisa.

Eisa then crossed the ball in for Brian Graham, who headed into the Wycombe net despite vociferous protests by several Blues players.

Ainsworth said after the game: "It is incredibly tough to take.

"I have seen the video and for me it is a blatant two-handed push on Ebs.

"Ebs was welling up after saying he couldn't stay on his feet and I was going to nail him if he could have cleared the ball but he was blatantly pushed.

"I can't believe it has been missed and refereeing is a tough job. However, it is League Two and we won't get scrutinised and people won't look at that.

"We will just go on now, having lost two points. If this was the Premier League it would have been on Sky Sports, being ripped to pieces and everyone would know about it.

"It is tough at this level sometimes. I have always asked for the referees to be professional at this level and I still want that.

"Lee Collins is a good referee but give him and these guys the extra help and make them professional at this level because we are professional players and this means a lot.

"I have spoken to the ref and he said he wants nothing more than to become professional and I feel for him.

"However, we did let Cheltenham into the game with two sloppy goals and I believe they will cause problems in this division due to their size so it was disappointing but I was delighted with our reaction second half."

In terms of positives, Ainsworth was pleased with the attacking threat on show.

He added: "Ebs set the place on fire second half and Bayo got another two goals. Add to that, Nick Freeman and Craig Mackail-Smith looked very threatening and we still have guys to come back so it looks good."

Ainsworth also bemoaned the injuries that the Blues currently have, with the likes of Anthony Stewart, Dan Scarr and Sido Jombati all missing against Cheltenham but he hopes that those guys will be back this week for two crunch cup games.

He commented: "I think Anthony and Dan will be in contention for next Sunday's game against Solihull Moors.

"Sido and Jack Williams will also be very close for that match. Luke O'Nien as well is ready to start this week. I just cannot afford any more injuries though, especially in defence or attack."
