Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth has provided an injury update on Dominic Gape.

The midfielder was stretched off just 16 minutes into Wanderers’ 1-0 win against Blackburn Rovers on Good Friday, with the ex-Southampton missing of this season with injuries.

He has only played 16 times this campaign.

Speaking after the victory over his boyhood club, Ainsworth said: “Dominic looks like he has injured his calf quite badly so we will have to readdress that and see where he is.

“He has had a terrible time with injuries in the Championship as he was tipped for big things.

“It happens.

“I was unfortunate to have it when I played, and I played at a good level.

“I managed to miss a year in-and-out with injuries, and I know what that is like.

“My sympathies are with him; he knows Wycombe are there for him and he will back.”

Gape’s injury was the only blemish in what was a perfect performance for the home side.

The win was only Wanderers’ seventh in the league this season, their eighth in all competitions, and despite being bottom still, they are now only eight points away from safety.

Ainsworth continued: “There were some fantastic performances from some individuals and as a team, we have worked over the last two weeks in changing what we wanted to be and I think it has paid dividends today.

“It is only one result so it is important to not get carried away, but, it is a big result considering what happened at their place and today, we stayed in that hunt and in the pack and it is brilliant.

“People will be looking at Wycombe and think ‘were they dead and buried?’ and that is absolutely no chance.

“We will be scrapping whatever happens and that is what I love about my boys and this place.

“It was a real shame to lose Dom Gape early because he is one of our young stars, and he is season has been so disrupted with injury, but Dennis came in and proved a point to me which is brilliant as that is what I want him to do.

“We create chances as Anis played a big part in the goal and getting set plays for us, as well as Admiral and I am really proud of the boys.

“It is another clean sheet and it’s another victory.

“Don’t write us off just yet.”

Wycombe go up to Rotherham on Easter Monday.
