Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth paid tribute to Rolando Aarons following his vital winner in the 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury at a rain-lashed Adams Park on Saturday.

Aarons confidently finished past Max O'Leary following a flick-on by Darius Charles and the Newcastle loanee is settling well into life in south Bucks.

Ainsworth predicts Aarons will become a thorn in the side of a lot of Championship defences as the season progresses.

He said: "He is a great player and he will terrorise defences in this league and he is definitely above this level.

"That goal will give him confidence. The likes of Onyedinma, Samuel and Smyth are all out of the team and the boys know that they have to keep their levels high if they want to stay in this team.

"I wanted to go with trickery and pace and that was Rolando and Scotty either side of Bayo.

"I have to give Shrewsbury credit. They are a good side and they will take a lot of points this season but we are showing great spirit and all credit to the boys."

It was another clean sheet for the Blues, and a run which has seen them concede just one goal in four League One matches.

Ainsworth added: "I don't think these guys are unsung.

"Darius Charles is going from strength to strength, Anthony Stewart is becoming the player he has been threatening to become for years.

"Jack Grimmer is the perfect replacement for Jason McCarthy and Joe Jacobson has Jamie Mascoll pushing him all the way.

"The problem is keeping everyone happy. We have a great squad, not just five defenders.

"We are in a fantastic place at the moment. I know it can change but we have the momentum at the moment."
