Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth was delighted to see his Wanderers side beat off his "nemesis" Accrington Stanley 2-1 on Tuesday evening at the Wham Stadium.

A last-gasp winner from Alex Samuel sealed all three points and their first win against Accrington in 12 attempts dating back to 2012.

Sean McConville had given Stanley the lead on 14 minutes before substitute Scott Kashket equalised with 13 minutes to go.

Wycombe were indebted to David Stockdale for a string of fine saves and Ainsworth couldn't conceal his pride at the final whistle.

He said: "I played the last time we won here so that shows how long ago it was.

"It was a fantastic game. Accrington play good football and without Bayo we have to play a different way and we did it really well.

"We tried to frustrate them and they had a couple of good chances and Stockdale made some fantastic saves.

"We had similar chances in the first half without having that final ball. At half-time I told the boys to press higher and I knew I had some heavy artillery on the bench and it was great to bring on Nathan Tyson and Kashket.

"I didn't know the subs would play such a big part and Scotty took his goal so well after a great ball from Gapey.

"And Alex Samuel, wow, he is something special. I am so pleased for him and he is so humble and grounded and his work rate is phenomenal and he never gives up and what a goal he scored."

Wanderers picked up 10 points from a possible 12 in November taking some big scalps along the way and they now have an 11-day break between games.

Ainsworth admitted this is definitely to his squad's benefit heading into a busy festive period.

He added: "We will have a bit of a break and we can have a full week to prepare for Barnsley on December 8 and we are at our best when we have a full week to prepare.

"It has been a tough three days and some of the boys will need a break and we are hoping the likes of Bayo and Matt Bloomfield will be back in contention."
