Richard Dobson has revealed his tactical decisions following Wycombe Wanderers’ 1-0 over Charlton.

Going into the match at the Valley, Wanderers made three changes to the team that lost at Ipswich three days previously, with Jack Grimmer, Josh Scowen, and Anis Mehmeti replacing Anthony Stewart, Curtis Thompson, and David Wheeler who dropped to the bench.

The move paid off as Mehmeti worked well with the Chairboys’ man of the season so far in Garath McCleary, to set up Sam Vokes’ winner on 35 minutes.

On the changes, Dobson said: “I just thought we could have used the ball better the other night [at Ipswich].

“We didn’t use it well enough through the midfield and I felt we needed to get Garath McCleary and Anis as they combined so well together in more attacking areas.

“It worked to an extent but as the game went on Charlton started to get ahead of steam and we felt Anis’ attacking threat was lost so that’s why we brought on David Wheeler.

“Charlton applied a bit more pressure in the second half as they were a little bit more purposeful with their attacks, but this opened up space on the counter which we used two or three times.

“I think the way the game was going, and to make sure of the game, we could sit in and be a bit more defensive and looked to counter."

In the absence of manager Gareth Ainsworth, who is recovering from Covid-19,the match was the second in three days that he and the club's captain, Matt Bloomfield, had taken charge of.

Dobson also revealed that the team selection and substitutions were his decision.

He said: "We have spoken as the week has gone on.

"I think he has relaxed a little bit as the week progressed.

"Obviously, it was tough for him but we spoke on New Year’s Eve and said ‘I’ll leave you alone tomorrow, as it’s up to you. It’s on you tomorrow’ and that was great to hear as it shows great faith and trust from him."

Finally, the assistant manager praised Chris Forino on what was only his third league appearance of the season.

Out of three league matches, Forino has completed 90 minutes in all of them, registering two wins.

On the young centre back, Dobson said: “I am delighted for Chris.

“He is a young lad learning his trade and he has come straight into the first team which is sink or swim time and he is swimming which is great to see.

“He is ably supported by the older heads around him such as Jacobson who was outstanding, Jack Grimmer who came into the side who I thought was excellent as he read the danger well, and they’re two solid citizens we’ve got and that we can rely on.”

Forino has played six games for Wanderers and has scored one goal.
