Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth has admitted that ‘MK were the better team’ in their League One play-off semi-final second leg fixture.

The north Buckinghamshire side had an incredible 29 shots on goal compared to Wanderers’ two, however, only six of Milton Keynes’ efforts were either saved by goalkeeper David Stockdale, or blocked by the Chairboys' defence.

The 1-0 loss on the day saw Wycombe prevail into the League One play-off final with a 2-1 aggregate victory, where they will face either Sunderland or Sheffield Wednesday on May 21

The boss also credited his players for speaking up at half-time on how to avoid MK from going further in front.

Ainsworth, who turns 49 on May 10, said: “I actually got calmer as the day went on.

“As the game went on, I had about four different formations going through my head and we worked out this deep press and we need to give credit to the players because, they were saying about where the gaps were and where they were getting run at.

“This meant I needed to come up with a solution.

“So getting Dominic and Josh in front of the back four was key to stop Scott Twine as he is a fantastic player.

“I’m not going to stand here and say we were the better team.

“MK Dons were the better team, but over the two legs, Wycombe were the better team.

“That’s been proven by a 2-1 (aggregate) scoreline and I can’t believe we’re going to Wembley.

“It’s going to be amazing and I am looking forward to it.

“I’m so proud of them.”

This is Wanderers’ third play-off final in seven seasons.
