Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has praised Tyla Dickinson after the goalkeeper made his league debut for the club in the Chairboys’ 3-0 home over Burton Albion.

Dickinson, who joined the Adams Park outfit last season, looked confident, assured, and dominant when collecting crosses, corners, and blocking shots.

His inaugural appearance in a Wanderers shirt comes after the club ‘didn’t get their goalkeeper across the line’, which is rumoured to be Manchester United shot-stopper, Nathan Bishop.

However, the 21-year-old showcased his talents in front of a 5,000-plus crowd inside Adams Park, as goals from David Wheeler, Anis Mehmeti and Josh Scowen sent the Chairboys to the top of the League One table.

Dickinson was also named the game’s Man of the Match just before full-time.

Speaking to the press, Ainsworth said: “We didn’t get our goalkeeper across the line, but I thought he was outstanding.

“I made the decision yesterday to go with Tyla because I didn’t want to panic over not getting someone over the line and that happens sometimes in the loan market.

“But there was no panic and no worries and for such a young boy to come in, Tyla stepped up.

“His tactical management of the game and his positioning were brilliant.”

All of Wanderers’ goals were scored by the half-hour mark and if it wasn’t for Burton’s keeper in Ben Garrett, Wycombe could have their lead increased.

However, the manager insists that throughout the season ‘there will be hard places to go to’, as Wycombe now prepare for an away trip to Bolton next week.

On the match, Ainsworth continued: “Credit my sports science team as they did a fantastic job, as they got the boys in top condition.

“I asked the boys for a quick start as they had the energy, they had the physical capabilities to get into a team that had new players gelling together and didn’t want that to happen, and we steamrolled them in the first-half.

“However, that doesn’t happen every week but we had some very good induvial performances today and the game was in our control.

“We knew that they would get in our faces in the second half and take a few more risks, but the damage had been done.”
