Slobodan Tedic’s header with five minutes remaining, which was his first goal for the Tykes, gave the South Yorkshire club their ninth win in 11 games as they move onto 69 points for the season.

The result means they are eight points off the automatic promotion places, but have two games in hand over Plymouth Argyle who are second.

He said: “It was a scrappy game and we weren’t at our best.

“But we managed to find a way to get the result and most importantly, a clean sheet.

“We’ve got quality in the team and with the five subs that we managed to make made a positive impact on the game and that won us at.

“Did it look like it was going to peter out?

"Yes, because there weren’t many chances in the match.

“We were fortunate to be level at half-time as Wycombe created the better chances, but, we found a way to stay in it.”
