Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth was delighted to see his side end their Checkatrade Trophy campaign on a high with a 2-0 victory over West Ham U21s.

Goals from Will De Havilland and Sido Jombati contributed to an excellent team performance at Adams Park on Tuesday night and Ainsworth admitted that a lot of players had given him a nice problem ahead of Sunday's FA Cup encounter with Leatherhead.

He said: "I would love to still be in the competition when you see a performance like that but we didn't do enough against Bristol Rovers or Swindon Town.

"This game was all about players coming into the team, players coming back from injury and illnesses and really giving me a selection headache for Sunday which they have done.

"It was a good performance. It was a system (3-5-2) that we haven't played regularly. I am trying to drip-feed it in as I like playing three at the back.

"I thought Sido and Jack Williams at wing-back were excellent. Jack, in particular, did so well tonight after a knee injury.

"He is learning so much about the game. And the two up front (Nick Freeman and Dayle Southwell) ran their socks off.

"It was a great win for us but the thoughts to do turn to Sunday as that is a huge game and we want to make sure we get to the third round but it was nice to bow out with a win.

"It is big that these guys have all come back from various injuries and illnesses. They will have a bit of downtime now ready for Sunday."

One player who also impressed was goalkeeper Yves Ma-Kalambay, who looked assured between the sticks for the Blues.

Ainsworth added: "Yves made two important saves in the game.

"His starting positions were cracking. He starts high, which we like, and we do try and defend set plays very high.

"He did all the right things and it is fantastic to have him as a deputy and he is a good keeper and I am sure Browny, who has been superb lately, is feeling the pressure from Yves as well."

Although he named himself on the bench, Ainsworth remained an unused substitute and hinted that the game for Northampton last season could have been his last.

He commented: "An injury would have forced me on as I wouldn't have risked any players.

"Anything less than 10 minutes would have been me but the lads weren't ready to go down and let me on so fair play to them.

"It looks like probably my last ever appearance was at Northampton last year so I will have to take that."
