Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth admitted that ‘there a few choice words’ during the half-time break as Wanderers came back from behind to beat Morecambe 4-3 at Adams Park.

Goals from Daryl Horgan, Sam Vokes, Joe Jacobson and an injury-time winner from Curtis Thompson, saw the Chairboys come from 2-0 down to lead 3-2 before the visitors pulled a goal from in the last 10 minutes.

But Thompson’s injury-time strike gave Wycombe their sixth win in a row at Adams Park.

The stunning second half display was the complete opposite in what was a poor opening half for the home side, and speaking after the topsy-turvy game in South Bucks, the boss said: “There were a few choice words at half-time but nothing too crazy.

“We weren’t good first-half.

“One of the goals we conceded in the first half was our own doing and another is Morecambe’s good play, but, we pointed out these dangers.

“Maybe the pitch wasn’t great due to the weather, the touch wasn’t there, and the basics were not there and the formation didn’t work, which is on me.

“So we had a formation change at half-time to try and get more players on the ball as that is fundamental for us, as that is what we live off as footballers.

“And it worked as we scored four goals in the second half.

“We were poor first half and they weren’t, but with the second half, I am proud that the boys responded.”

All four goals were scored in the Whites Beaconsfield Terrace end and when Thompson bagged his first of the season in the dying embers of the game, and his first for nearly three years, Adams Park erupted.

The bench were off their feet, players collapsed to the ground and the noise was deafening.

It was a brilliant display from Ainsworth’s men as they move up to fifth in the table.

The game also saw Horgan score his first league goal for the club since he joined last season, as well as Vokes’ first goal since August and Joe Jacobson’s first home strike since January.

Ainsworth continued: “What a finish in front of the terrace end and those fans in that end get some action as they get some unavailable entertainment.

“It was a real team performance and these are special times at a very special place.

“And probably, today was a kick up the backside with a victory.

“The likes of Matt Bloomfield, Curtis Thompson, Dom Gape and Adebayo Akinfenwa have all been involved in these sorts of games, but the others haven’t, but that feeling is ingrained into this squad and you can feel it around the ground.

“The feeling around that dressing room is that we have always got a chance and I told the boys at half-time that I believed in them, that they could win it 3-2 and I got that wrong!

“It was a bit of relief at the end but it was also elation because these players will run through a brick wall for me.

“You’ve got people like Sam Vokes who was celebrating at the end with me, and he’s played Premier League football and international football at the Euros, so if he can celebrate like that at Wycombe, we all can.”

Finally, on Horgan, he added: “I’m really pleased for Daz.

“We have tried to get him in positions so that he can score, as he has been very close and he is a cracking player.

“I’m so proud of this team.”

Up next for Wycombe is a home match against Gillingham on October 9, but this could be moved due to the international break.
