Wycombe Wanderers forward Adebayo Akinfenwa paid a glowing tribute to his team-mates as the Blues pulled off a crucial win against fellow strugglers Southend on Saturday.

Akinfenwa scored both goals in the second half and his all-round play caused the Shrimpers some real headaches but he focused on the rest of the players who more than played their part on a fantastic victory.

He said: "I have been in the game for a while and goalscorers always get the headlines but I promise you I can go from back to front.

"Rocky's positioning was second to none, I thought the back four were solid and I can't speak any more highly about Gapey [Dominic Gape] and Curtis Thompson.

"The way they got around the pitch was amazing and Al [Alex Samuel] doesn't stop running.

"The plaudits should be going to the team in itself because I felt off the back of the run we have been going on, I thought we outplayed Charlton and took it to Portsmouth in the second half.

"It is nice to get the victory as it has been a long time. A huge shoutout to the fans as they were in voices and we wanted to win for them."

Akinfenwa's first goal, in particular was a sublime finish, but he admitted he couldn't remember too much about his first goal.

He joked: "I thought Scotty [Kashket] shot because that is what he normally does.

"I remember it going across and I thought just make solid contact and it was more relief than anything.

"I didn't care who scored and it was the relief of it going in the net."

The big man also came off with about 10 minutes to go with a knock but he hoped to be alright for Friday's trip to Rochdale.

He said: "Fingers crossed, I will be ok.

"I felt my knee towards the end there but hopefully this body can heal and I am good to go again next week."
