Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth believes the officials ‘have got to get them [decisions] right’ after the Chairboys had an injury-time equaliser disallowed in their 2-1 home loss against Coventry City.

Scott Kashket fired in what he thought was his fifth goal of the season as well as securing Wycombe’s 12th point of the campaign, in the 94th minute against the Sky Blues.

However, the officials deemed that the 24-year-old’s shot, which came from a spillage by City keeper Ben Gibson, who dropped Josh Knight’s thumping volley in the final few seconds, was deemed to be offside.

Replays have since revealed that Kashket was in fact onside.

Speaking after the defeat at Adams Park, Ainsworth said: “This costs clubs fortunes.

“These points, these decisions, and they [the officials] have got to get them right.

“I almost wish there was VAR at this level because we could have had a couple of penalties and an onside goal this year.

“It just seems to be that Wycombe Wanderers don’t seem to get decisions in the Championship, and I will end it there before I get into trouble.”

The defeat means Wycombe are now winless in eight matches as they remain in the relegation zone on 11 points.

However, the manager was happy with the performance against the team that were promoted alongside Wycombe last season, and for large parts of the contest, it looked like the Chairboys were on course to beat the side that hammered them 4-1 a year ago at Adams Park.

But a mistake by Alex Pattison gifted Coventry their opening goal through Liam Kelly on 34 minutes, before the former MK Dons man got his second on the stroke of half-time, from a poorly defended free-kick.

These were Kelly’s first goals for Coventry since April 2018.

Ainsworth continued: “I honestly believe we were the better team.

“Maybe I have got it wrong, but I'm usually pretty good with my eyes.

"We have got to put our chances in and we have got to stop conceding.

“The first goal is a gift and the second goal, we have got to defend the set plays better.

“But with all those things, we are in the Championship and we’re finding our feet still.

“The chances count must have been massive in Wycombe’s favour and we scored right at the death and the ref has given an offside, when for all the world it looked onside.

“It is one of those days where I am really pleased with the performance but disappointed with the result.

“I know results determine where we are in the league but all I can say is, if we keep playing like that, we will be fine.

“We have been more than competitive and I am really pleased with the performance.”

Up next for Wycombe is a trip to Bournemouth on December 15.
