Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth praised his side's conquerors from Saturday, Luton Town, hailing the Hatters as "the best team in the league" after seeing his Chairboys lose 3-0 at Kenilworth Road.

A late brace from substitute George Moncur and a first half goal from James Collins sealed the three points for Mick Harford's side but Wycombe were still in the contest with ten minutes to go, Wanderers were still in the game.

However, it wasn't to be as the Blues lost their first game in six but Ainsworth was far from despondent at the final whistle.

He said: "They are a really good team.

"Over the last four or five years, we have had some great battles with them and I am honoured to be in these battles with them.

"It is always a spicy atmosphere and they have grown over four years and they are different class to what they were.

"They have a very good side and they have household names who would step into any team in League One.

"They are the best team in the league, in my opinion, and I will be very surprised if they don't get promoted this season."

Wycombe improved in the second half and frustrated Luton until the dying embers of the game and Ainsworth admitted his side were well in the game until that point.

He added: "We did well in the first half and defended stoutly and then for 25 minutes in the second half we were well in the game.

"If we nicked one, it would have been a special point but the last 10 minutes we tired and gave everything and came a cropper to one of their substitutes.

"The scoreline may be a bit flattering but we can't be too down about that and it is awesome and these experiences are great for us."

There were positives to take from the match with lively cameos from Scott Kashket and loanee Luke Bolton in the second half.

Ainsworth said: "I thought Scotty made a real impact and he is a nippy little character and Luke is getting up to speed.

"It was great for him to get more minutes and this is big for Luke and I am sure he won't have seen an atmosphere like this and hopefully he can start performing like we know he can in his natural position wide."
