Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth celebrated his 250th league game in style with his 100th league win after the 3-1 victory over Colchester.

Goals from Adebayo Akinfenwa, Paris Cowan-Hall and Luke O'Nien cemented Wycombe's place in the play-offs as they recorded their first ever league double over the U's.

With those statistics in mind, Ainsworth preferred to deflect that milestone to heaping praise on his players, especially debutants Tafari Moore and Nathan McGinley.

Both players were fantastic for the Blues and Ainsworth purred over a fantastic win for his charges.

He said: "I thought both of them were outstanding.

"They both played really well and they grew into the game. Second half, Nathan was imperious and Tafari looked like he has played for us for years.

"However, it is about the whole team and they wouldn't have been able to play like that were it not for the group.

"This group is fantastic to manage. I am so proud of their application and they took to what we wanted to do really well with the high press.

"Even when we were in the lead, we still kept pushing and probing and we had a lot of energy and it was a good win for us."

At the other end of the spectrum, Akinfenwa recorded his 14th goal of the season, just four off his personal best for the season.

Ainsworth added: "I think he is going to break that this season.

"He has been here 18 months and he must have 32 goals which is absolutely phenomenal.

"Bayo is a player that has come here and embraced the place and the fans have embraced him and he really has delivered.

"He is a big character to have around and he is a great guy and a leader.

"I am so pleased to have him at the moment. If there is anything you know there is a real chance that Akinfenwa will get his head on it."
