Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth has criticised his side’s defending following their shock 3-2 home loss against struggling Cambridge United.

The Chairboys went into the contest off the back of three straight wins in the league, whilst the Us had lost their last five in which they had only scored one goal.

However, strikes from Harvey Knibbs, Jack Lankester and Lloyd Jones ended this positive run.

Goals from Sam Vokes and Lewis Wing, which was the latter’s first at Adams Park since his move to Buckinghamshire in January, saw Ainsworth’s side lose for only the second time against Cambridge on home soil.

The previous defeat was in February 2001.

Speaking on the goals his side let in, he said: “It was not going good enough.

“Poor defending cost us and it was a poor showing.

“Prior to that, we defended brilliantly in the previous three games but tonight [October 25] we were just poor.

“We always looked dangerous on the attack as we can score goals and we’ve got players that can do that, but, we should not be having to try and score four goals in a game to win at home.

“We win and lose as a team, and I will never criticize anyone [individually] in public and I never will.

“But we will pick out the bones from the goals Cambridge scored as it was not good enough for a team that has been on a great run, and has performed well in recent games.

“We looked a bit out of sorts defensively.”

Wycombe sit 13th place in the table.
