David Stockdale and Ryan Tafazolli were praised by manager Gareth Ainsworth, after the two put in a brilliant performance in Wycombe's 2-1 against Crewe Alexandra at Adams Park.

Tafazolli scored a brace which included a 96th minute winner in front of the terrace end, whilst Stockdale produced several saves to keep Wanderers in the game.

Two of the saves, one from a Rio Adebisi volley, and a Madgar Gomes cross/shot, were tipped acrobatically away for corners, when the away side were on top.

Both stops proved vital, as Wycombe ended up snatching all three points in a thriller at South Bucks.

Speaking on both players, the boss said of Stockdale: “David Stockdale is a Premier League/Championship keeper when he is at his best and there is no doubt about that.

“We are so lucky to have someone like that because Lee Harrison, the goalkeeper coach,  works hard and David, mentally, has had to overcome a lot in his life, and he is playing at his best.

“To have someone like that between the sticks to build on is fantastic and I want to say thank you to Stocko for being patient all those times he wasn’t playing in the Championship.

“He then gets his chance, he took it and he deserves it.

“Proof of that today as he is a fantastic keeper.”

And of Tafazolli, he added: “He is very laid back, and sometimes I need to rile him up because he can be too laid up and casual.

"But, that’s his game.

“He’s very steady and he is very assured of the way he plays and I think he has been a fantastic player for us when he came in.

"If he and Uche [Ikpeazu] were fit at the start of last season, I think we would have survived in the Championship.

“But I won’t do individuals here, as I feel obliged to name the other 18 as they have all played their part today.”

Tafazolli joined Wycombe in the summer of 2020 from Hull City and has scored six goals in 32 matches so far for the Chairboys.

Stockdale, who is in his third spell with Wycombe, has played 37 times for the club.

Stockdale has kept six clean sheets this season.
