Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth was full of praise for youngster Anis Mehmeti, after the striker scored his first goal for the club in the 1-1 draw against QPR.

The 19-year-old, who has been part of the club’s B Team set-up since joining the Chairboys this summer, came on as a 76th minute substitute for Nick Freeman, and scored the equaliser with two minutes remaining.

It was his first-ever professional goal.

The draw means Wycombe are winless in 10 and are bottom of the Championship, but have stopped their three-game losing run.

Speaking after the draw, Ainsworth said: “Anis Mehmeti is part of the future for this club.

“With the talent he has got at his feet, he can be fearless.

“Sometimes, that can be a real asset because when you’re young, you play without fear and it is like life – when you get older, you start fearing things more which is a crazy way to live, but that is how we live as human beings.

“He is unbreakable and unstoppable at the moment.

“He can achieve anything, and I can see him playing in the Premier League.

“He came in as part of the B Team, but has progressed into the first team because he is one heck of a talent.

“He’s so comfortable on both feet, he has scored some amazing goals in training, and he is a super talent.”

Mehmeti’s goal was part of a dogged display produced by Wycombe in a game that they could easily have won.

Scott Kashket had two chances within the first four minutes, but both efforts were denied by Timothy Dieng.

Daryl Horgan also tested the Senegalese keeper whilst Adebayo Akinfenwa had several headers loop over the goal.

And despite falling to the bottom of the Championship table after the draw, which will mean the Chairboys will be at the foot of the division on Christmas Day, Ainsworth is feeling positive.

He continued: “We have got to take our chances when they come because we had one in the first minute.

“We have got to be clinical and we have got to make sure we stick them in.

“We looked like we were going to win the game in the second half, and I said to the boys that I believed in them and it almost came to fruition.

“QPR are a tough team.

“They have been in the Championship for a long time and know the level.

“I am pleased that we didn’t get beat but I am gutted we take our chances as it was a great performance.

“I would rather be where we are than having horrendous games and sneaking wins here and there because I don’t think that has any structure.

“Eventually, you will end up losing as you will be playing badly, and I think there is only one way for us and that is up.

“The wins will come because of the performances."

Up next for Wycombe is an away trip to Bristol City on Boxing Day.
