Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth admitted the 1-0 win at Bristol Rovers was a "huge" three points as the Blues grabbed their third away victory of the season.

Sido Jombati's 57th minute header was the difference between the sides in a keenly-contested game at the Memorial Stadium and it edged the Chairboys closer to their 55-point target.

Ainsworth said: "Considering the results, it is a huge three points for us.

"There is an eight-point difference between us and that dreaded line [relegation] that I keep talking about but it is a big win because Bristol are down in the relegation area and we want to beat these teams below us.

"We have done fantastically against the top six teams this season but we want to pick up points against our rivals.

"In the Bristol programme, I think they have said that there is a 15 team relegation battle and I totally agree with that.

"We are one of those 15 teams and we need to make sure we get enough points to survive this season and we have potential at the club to strengthen and become stronger.

"I want to stay in League One and keep improving this team. We have a great young core of players here and all these youngsters are pushing through now.

"I am not taking anything away from the experienced players and it is great we can rely on these players and guide the young players through."

Ainsworth praised matchwinner Jombati, who was also magnificent in defence alongside Adam El-Abd.

He added: "He is in his fifth year at Wycombe Wanderers and we signed him as a full-back and he was phenomenal as a full-back.

"He has to step in at centre half when we didn't have anyone and we have almost moulded him into this fantastic centre half.

"Sido gives me heart attacks now and again with his Cruyff turns and they seem to come off and he did some ugly stuff and him and Adam did a really good job and they were absolutely outstanding and I am really pleased with a clean sheet."
