WYCOMBE Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth and star Joe Jacobson have won the Sky Bet League One Manager and Player of the Month awards.

The Chairboys have had a brilliant November with three wins and a draw from four league matches, leaving them top of the table and four points ahead of second-placed Ipswich Town.

Wycombe beat Shrewsbury Town 1-0 at Adams Park, enjoyed a 2-0 victory at Tranmere Rovers, before a 1-0 home success against Doncaster Rovers and then a 0-0 draw at Ipswich.

Ainsworth said: “It’s a really proud moment to receive this award, and for us as a club to be recognised for how we’ve been performing this season.

“I know the award is for the manager, but it’s really for the whole team of staff around me who deserve the credit too.

“We had a great month, with some tough games, but to collect 10 points without conceding a goal was a fantastic return, and we played some really good football along the way too.

“Thank you to the panel who chose us to win the award and now we’re looking forward to getting back into action on Saturday after a long break with no game.”

Ainsworth said of Jacobson: “Joe is one of the most humble guys I know. He’s been playing some of the best football of his career.

“I’m really proud to have been able to give him five years at this club to enjoy longevity and be part of the culture that we’ve created.

“He’s been a phenomenal left-back for us throughout that time, and in particular this season.

“He’s showed what a threat his left foot can be with many brilliant assists and important goals, alongside the 11 clean sheets we’ve been able to pick up, and he thoroughly deserves his award.”

Jacobson said: “It’s a real honour to win this award and it’s something I always hoped I might achieve at some point during my career.

“I think the whole team has had a fantastic season so far – everyone knows their jobs, works hard for each other, and it seems to be working.

“Last month I think you could have given this award to any of our defenders or goalkeeper because we’ve been really proud of our defensive record, not conceding a goal for quite some time now.

“It’s a special accolade for me to collect the trophy and I’m proud to have played my part in helping the team at both ends of the pitch.”

Wycombe Wanderers return to action with a visit to Adams Park from Burton Albion this Saturday (3pm).
