Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth has said that a ‘moment of quality’ is needed to help his side pick up wins.

Speaking after the narrow 2-1 loss away at Bristol City on Boxing Day, the defeat means the Chairboys are now winless in 11 matches and are rooted to the bottom of the Championship.

They have only won two games all season, and face Cardiff City and Middlesbrough next – two teams who are aiming for promotion to the Premier League.

He said: “They’ve [Bristol City], have scored twice, we’ve scored once and that was the tale of the game.

“We get to that final third really well as we have worked the division out now.

“But now it is just getting that moment of quality.

“And that isn’t the forwards – that is the midfielders and defenders from set plays.

"So we have got to make it count when we get it in there.

“Performance wise, I can’t fault them [the players].

“They gave me everything, absolutely everything.

“But performances won’t keep us up – results will, and we need to start getting points on the board."

The Robins took the lead on 23 minutes when Chris Martin scored his third goal of the season, and his first in the league at Ashton Gate, following his arrival at the club in September.

But the Chairboys equalised through Garath McCleary midway through the second-half before the Senegalese striker, Famara Diedhiou, bagged the winner with a wonderful goal with just three minutes left.

The defeat means Wycombe have lost five of their last seven matches, and are now four points away from safety.

He continued: “It is tough going home with nothing as we really did perform well.

“I believe that we are in all these games and we haven’t been beaten by more than one goal for a long time.

“It was tight, it was close, and it could have gone either way as the game was on a knife-edge, but they got it [the win] with a world-class finish from a striker who cost probably more than £5m.

“Them things are going to happen, but we need to make sure that when we are on top, as we were, we make it count and that is everything.

“Every pass, every tackle, every header, every shot – we have got to make them count and I am pretty confident we will get a win soon and once we do, I think it’ll put more confidence in us, it’ll start a run going.

“We knew that it was going to be tough coming up but we got up – it was phenomenal.

“Coming to places like this [Ashton Gate], an amazing stadium, is a fantastic place to play and I wish there were fans here.

“We deserved more than nothing, but you’ve got to score more goals than the opposition and they hit a great goal to win the game.”
