‘I would not want to be a referee.’

These were the words from Gareth Ainsworth after his side had victory snatched away from them in the dying seconds against Watford, as Alex Samuel’s 90th-minute header was disallowed by referee John Brooks.

The man in the middle believed that the Welshman impeded Watford’s Ben Foster, with the striker backing into the former Manchester United and Birmingham City goalkeeper.

Replies showed that the decision was somewhat harsh against the ex-Swansea man.

Ainsworth said: “It looks like there is nothing wrong with it, but I have said this before, I would not want to be a referee.

“I’m not going to criticize referees or the officials.

“I know John Brooks is a good ref as we have had him before, and people are saying, maybe it is to do with us being the smaller club in the Championship, small club syndrome, we’re not getting the rub of the green, but it is nasty to say that.

“It is not going our way at the moment but it evens itself out, and I am hoping that in the second half of the season, we might get a few decisions that go for us.

“We were the better side, I am happy with the performance and when the opposition keeper gets Man of the Match, then that tells you everything about the game.”

It is the second home game in succession that the Chairboys have had a goal ruled out, following Joe Jacobson’s disallowed goal which came directly from a corner in the 2-1 home defeat to Millwall on October 17.

However, with positive performances in their last three games against Millwall, Reading and Norwich, Ainsworth is confident that the results and wins will come, following Wycombe’s first point of the season.

He continued: “The last three games, I thought we were worthy of a point and today [October 27], I thought we could have got all three.

“I thought we were the better side today against a team that were in the Premier League last season and almost stayed in the Premier League last season, and it was a phenomenal effort my boys put in.

“I’m really proud of them and it has been coming.

“I hope people watched that and thought, Wycombe is not going to be an easy game, it is going to be a tough game.

“Daniel Farke gave us great compliments on Saturday [after the loss against Norwich] and hopefully, the whole of Watford are thinking, it wasn’t easy to get that point at Adams Park.”
