Wanderers defender Jason McCarthy felt his side deserved more from their 3-2 defeat to Walsall at the Bescot Stadium on Saturday.

Before the home side took the lead, Wycombe hit the woodwork through Paris Cowan-Hall and Craig Mackail-Smith missed a great chance to give the visitors the opportunity to go ahead.

McCarthy said: "It is a shame that we didn't come away with anything after I think we probably should have.

"First half we were pushing for that opening goal and it looked like we were going to get it and then a sloppy set-piece given away followed by two poor goals conceded was disappointing.

"It is disappointing not to get anything after scoring two goals away from home.

"We have got six points this week and if you look at the bigger picture that is massive for us and that is what we will look at.

"They scored at important times in the game and that was a killer for us and we couldn't get a foothold."

McCarthy is forming a promising partnership in the centre of defence with captain Adam El-Abd and the former Barnsley man praised El-Abd for his guidance.

He added: "He helps me a lot and he is a big experienced head and it is a pleasure to play alongside him."
