Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth felt his side should have been awarded a certain penalty at the end of the game as his side made it 11 games without a win as they lost 3-2 to Portsmouth.

Adebayo Akinfenwa appeared to be wrestled to the ground inside the Pompey box by defender Christian Burgess but referee John Busby waved away the appeals, with Akinfenwa furious that no penalty was awarded.

Ainsworth gave his view at the final whistle as his side suffered their fourth straight defeat in League One to leave themselves just a point above the drop zone.

He said: "How we haven't had a penalty at the end there, I do not know.

"I am not one to go on about referees and I have been very lenient this season. For me, that is a stonewaller. I can't believe we haven't got a penalty for that.

"I know Bayo is a big guy and he doesn't get his fair share of fouls but please give us something.

"The ref has blown up very quickly at the end there and I think that is to stop some protests because for me that is a penalty all day and that is a 3-3 and that means so much to us.

"We fought well and their keeper was the busier man. I am happy with the performance, especially second half.

"I know it is a results game but they showed some real fight and if we can do that for the remaining six games we will be fine."

Wycombe now have a game against Charlton on Tuesday evening and he believes it is a positive that a game follows so soon after.

He added: "It is a good thing if we can keep this momentum up.

"Second half we were great. Even first half we had chances and I am pleased with some players who came in today such as Michael Harriman and Ryan Allsop.

"I have plenty of options now which is good. This is exciting. We have six cup finals. I hope it is only four and we can enjoy a couple of games but if it goes to the end, it goes to the end.

"I am up for the fight and I am sure the boys are too."

Scott Kashket came off the bench to score a magnificent goal to bring Wanderers back into the game at 3-2 and Ainsworth was pleased to see his striker back amongst the goals.

He said: "It was a brilliant goal.

"He has got goals in him. He is confidence player and he must be sky-high was confidence after that. It is a fantastic finish from a player who has that bit of magic.

"People and moments are what will keep us up. That was a special moment and I hope there is more to come from him."
