Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth believes his side deserved at least a point as they yet again conceded a last minute winner, losing 2-1 to Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium.

It has looked good for the Blues who were aiming for their first win in nine games as they took the lead through skipper Adam El-Abd on 20 minutes.

However, they were pegged back when Jerome Sinclair equalised 10 minutes later before Josh Ruffels' injury-time winner broke Wycombe hearts.

At 1-1, Wanderers had a golden chance to retake the lead when Alex Samuel was fouled for a penalty but Joe Jacobson blasted the spot kick wide.

Ainsworth said: "There is no such thing as luck at the moment at the me. If there is, it is only bad luck we are getting.

"We have deserved a point here, maybe more. The missed penalty is going to be looked back on and hitting the bar.

"Moments and people are what is going to keep you in this division. We have the right people, I am sure of that. We just need to take those moments now and that will be enough to survive in this league.

"I thought Alex Samuel and Nick Freeman were excellent and didn't deserve to be on the losing side.

"We will brush ourselves down and I will pick the boys up and we know these performances will turn into three points very soon."

Ainsworth also hailed the fans as 1,800 turned out at the Kassam to cheer their hearts out for the team.

He added: "I am blown away by the support.

"On a winless run like we are on, for them to turn up like that has made us proud. Our fans were absolutely brilliant and I was gutted for them and they have supported me from thick and thin.

"In these tough moments, I need them. The boys need their support and thanks for getting behind them."

Jacobson's missed penalty came at a pivotal moment in the game but Ainsworth defended his full-back for the effort.

He said: "There was quite a way to go but if he scored there is every chance we would be talking about three points.

"It happens. It has happened at a bad time for us when we could really do with some luck but I am going to vilify Joe.

"He has been a fantastic servant for this club and he has played a big part in where we are sitting today.

"There are no moans at Joe. I am sure he will step up and take the next one but he was gutted in the dressing room after the game and I can understand that."
