Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth hailed his side's character as the Blues turned their match around against Doncaster Rovers, coming from two goals behind to win 3-2.

After a very even first hour, the game burst into life when John Marquis and Tommy Rowe put the visitors ahead.

However, with 15 minutes to go, Wycombe turned on the afterburners as Paris Cowan-Hall and Curtis Thompson levelled matters before Cowan-Hall's injury time winner sparked amazing scenes around Adams Park.

Ainsworth said: "I hoped the belief was still there with me and the way I am as well as the boys. It was a fantastic comeback.

"There were fundamental mistakes, especially in the second half, but for long periods I thought we were the better side. We frustrated Doncaster and our plans worked a treat.

"However, goals change games and we gave two sloppy goals away and scored from their strengths.

"The character everyone has shown was amazing. Doncaster are up there for a reason and at the end the Wycombe fans blew my mind and I hope we can use this a springboard now to get the points we need to survive in this league."

At 2-0 down, Ainsworth turned to his star pairing Adebayo Akinfenwa and Scott Kashket to come on and breath life into a potential comeback.

Akinfenwa, especially, had a huge impact on the game, giving their centre backs a very uncomfortable last 25 minutes and the Chairboys boss admitted the substitutions made a difference.

He added: "We have two different ways of playing. Once we have the pace in the team, people are worried about the space in behind but when the big man comes on, it is a totally different story.

"They have to get round him and compete with his physicality and he played a huge part here. He is a special guy and our relationship goes so much deeper than football and he is there for everyone and he was outstanding when he came on, as well as Scotty when he came on.

"I had to pick the right decision and have clarity of thought and I thought the changes were right."

With the loanees now back at their parent clubs, Wycombe now have a thin playing squad and Ainsworth praised Cowan-Hall for the impact he made in the game and added it shows the quality he still has at his disposal.

He said: "Paris was fantastic for us as well as the likes of Nick Freeman and Curtis, who goes from strength to strength.

"We have a good squad in depth. It might not be the biggest but we have quality and there are no passengers.

"There is no one who can't play in the first team and we are a threat going forward and I just want to cut out these goals against."
