Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth has revealed that he will ‘take the blame’ for the Chairboys’ 3-0 defeat away at Bolton.

His side were two goals down by half-time as Kyle Dempsey and Aaron Morley got onto the scoresheet before the former got his brace in the second period.

The result saw the Trotters score their first goals in what was the inaugural time that they had defeated the Buckinghamshire-outfit after four straight Wycombe wins and clean sheets get kept.

However, Ainsworth’s men were very much second best and he revealed to the press after the 3-0 loss that the defeat was down to him.

He explained: “I will take the blame for that today as that was on me.

“It’s been a long while since we took a 3-0 defeat like that and that’s tough to take, but we are in this together and we always will be.

“Bolton were very good and fair play to them.”

Despite hitting the post through a Lewis Wing shot and Josh Scowen twice testing James Trafford in the Bolton goal, the day belongs to Ian Evatt’s men, as they are now unbeaten in 10 games in League One.

Ainsworth added: “I thought we had some good chances and at some points it was an even game, but Bolton took their chances and in the first half, they put two of them away and we didn’t.

“So, I decided to change it in the second-half back to something more familiar and I thought we did really well.

“First 20 minutes we were the aggressors, but their breakaway goal bursts our bubble and it kills us as 3-0 is always different whilst at 2-0, you have a chance.

“The players are down but I will pick them up for next week and we will get going again.”
