Gareth Ainsworth was a happy man at Adams Park as his side drew 0-0 against Brentford, which has put Wycombe one point from safety in the Championship.

A solid defensive display that saw Ryan Allsop produce a couple of stunning saves, secured Wycombe’s eighth point from their last 15 available.

And even though the match was a game of two halves, with Thomas Frank’s men controlling the first-half, with Wycombe dominating the second period, a point was a fair result and gives the side a confidence boost going into the game against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.

The match at a very cold Adams Park, also saw Dominic Gape play his first game in two-and-a-half months, with Ryan Tafazolli being on the bench.

Both players have been out recently because of injury.

Speaking after the game, Ainsworth said: “We knew that they would come with a possession-based system and play out from the back.

“We knew we had to control that and come up with a plan to make them take a few risks and once we got going, I thought we broke really well.

“The subs gave us a lot of fresh energy and I think a couple of tackles from Brentford really stopped us.”

He was also very complimentary of his counterpart, Thomas Frank.

The two men praised each other after their first encounter this season which was in the EFL Cup back in September.

Just over two months later, the pleasantries were shared this time around too.

He added: “Thomas Frank is a great manager.

“I have got a huge amount of respect for him and he is a brilliant guy with a fantastic team which makes that point really special for us.

“I’m really proud of the boys today.

“I’m proud of the efforts.

“Every single one of them, right to the subs who didn’t play as you can hear them and they’ll be involved Tuesday without a doubt, because we’ll have to change thick and fast with these nine games or so games before Christmas which is mental.

"So thank goodness that the five sub rule came in as we’re going to need it.

“But when you ask the boys to do something and they do it with everything they’ve got without question, then I’m just a happy manager.”

Finally, the boss was full of praise for goalkeeper Ryan Allsop.

The 28-year-old, who is now in his third full season with the club, produce a stunning stop to deny Bryan Mbeumo in the first-half, with the keeper tipping the winger’s shot onto the post from 15-yards.

Allsop also denied Bees captain Pontus Jansson with a couple of headers.

Ainsworth added: “It is really important to shut out and Allsop did his job with that save and I think Raya made some good saves too.

"So it was tit for tat today.”
