Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth declared himself "gutted" at seeing his side dumped out of the FA Cup at the first round stage for the first time in three years as they lost 2-0 to Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

In truth, Wanderers were second best for the majority of the game as goals from Andrew Shinnie and Harry Cornick sealed the passage through for the Hatters.

Ainsworth said: "I am absolutely gutted.

"I am hoping that round three for the last three seasons has not been a bad return for me as manager.

"I would love to do it again and it means as much off the pitch as it does on the pitch.

"People don't realise the prize money and potential it has. It means so much to us. Some clubs won't even register for them but for us it could mean a hell of a lot.

"I now hope we can some good results and keep in League One."

Ainsworth added: "I didn't think it was a terrible performance.

"We conceded two really bad goals. I will look at that and make sure things are put in place to stop those.

"We now need to get a run going in League One. We want to stay at League One club. It is going to be tough.

"Luton are probably going for the top six. They have good players and it is tough when you are against that but we will pick ourselves up and dust ourselves down."
