Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has praised every single player in his squad, after the Chairboys reached their second League One play-off final in three seasons.

The Adams Park club defeated Milton Keynes 2-1 on aggregate and made it through to the Wembley showpiece on May 21, despite losing to Liam Manning’s men 1-0 in the second leg at Stadium: MK, thanks to a Tory Parrott header.

The north Buckinghamshire outfit were by far the better team, but every Wanderers player from keeper David Stockdale, to Sam Vokes up front, defended for their lives as they faced 29 attempts on goal.

Speaking after the match, Ainsworth said: “Don’t put any of the credit down to me because I just said ‘can you do this please, boys? Can you sit and deny the space from behind?’

“I can’t wait to go to Wembley.

“It’s going to be brilliant.

“Today is up there as one of the best games we’ve had this season.

The boss also singled out Joe Jacobson who produced an incredible tackle to deny Parrott what looked like a certain goal with the score at 1-0.

Ainsworth continued: “It was incredible.

“For someone who is 35-years-old and people were saying he was written off, for him to put that block in was amazing.”

Throughout the contest, it seemed inevitable that MK were going to get themselves back into the tie with the amount of efforts they conjured up.

And even though most Wycombe fans were holding their breath, the boss admitted that he didn’t feel pressure when Milton Keynes dominated large parts of the match.

Referring back to that famous day at Torquay in 2014 which kept Wycombe’s status in the Football League, the boss said: “That was the biggest piece of learning for me, ever.

“I’m never going to go back to that place.

“That was the most pressure I have ever had in my life.

“This [fighting for promotion] is not pressure.

“This is enjoyment, fun, something to achieve together and I am so, so proud of the boys.

“When we got a throwing in the far corner with a few seconds to go, I knew that might be it.

“We were not the best team tonight, MK were, and they have got some fabulous players.”

Finally, on whether he would like to face either Sunderland or Sheffield Wednesday in the final, the manager said: “Don’t ask me who I want because, I don’t want either!

"They are two very good clubs.

“I can’t wait for the final.”
