Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth was thrilled to see his side make it five league wins on the bounce at Adams Park on Saturday thanks to a 3-2 win over Shrewsbury - their best run at home since February 2011.

Goals from Adam El-Abd, Joe Jacobson and Alex Samuel saw off a strong challenge from the Shrews, who took the lead through former Chairboy Aaron Holloway and pulled a goal back with 20 minutes to go through Fejiri Okenabirhie.

The win propelled Wanderers into the top half of League One and Ainsworth was delighted that his side kept the winning feeling going.

He said: "This winning run at home hasn't been a flash in the pan.

"We have really worked and deserved most of those wins. The Scunthorpe win [3-2 in the last minute] was a one-off but the rest of them we have ground it out.

"We are beginning to make this place a fortress. The away form has always been quite decent under me so if we can get the home form going it is a really good equation to get many points on the board.

"I think the lads are comfortable at home. We have this core support who are coming in and making a lot of noise, which is great.

"They helped us to see out the game and it is brilliant to make Adams Park the fortress it once was and I am so proud of the efforts of everyone.

"Shrewsbury are a tough side. Danny [Coyne] has them playing well and we were able to see the game out well. Aaron Holloway was always going to score but after his goal, we weren't troubled too much apart from that ridiculous goal in the second half.

"We played very well going forward and we found a few holes and it is nice when it comes off. Joe's goal was a fantastic strike and those bits of magic come off and Alex deserved his goal, he led the line brilliantly."

Ainsworth was also keen to praise debutant goalkeeper David Stockdale for his performance against Coyne's side.

He added: "I was very impressed with David. The second goal is harsh on him. He has been unfortunate with two great strikes.

"He commanded his area very well and he showed a lot of calmness and experience which filters out into the team and the terraces."

Wycombe now face a long and tricky trip up north on Tuesday as they face Accrington Stanley (kick off 7.45pm).

Ainsworth is relishing the task and wants to get one over on their "bogey" team as he described.

He said: "It is almost a bogey team for us so I want to get rid of that jinx and take the mockers off that.

"We will be looking at the squad and recovery levels and am sure we will rotate if we need and the big man [Adebayo Akinfenwa] will be back very soon."
