Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth was delighted with the strong performance of his players as they moved to fourth in League Two thanks to a 1-0 win over Chesterfield.

Luke O'Nien grabbed the only goal of the game on 54 minutes with a cracker, smashing in a left-footed effort into the bottom corner to give Spireites keeper Cameron Dawson absolutely no chance.

The win maintains an impressive run at Adams Park for the Chairboys, who won their fifth game in a row at home.

Ainsworth said: "Don't underestimate that result.

"Jack Lester has Chesterfield playing very well and they will pick plenty of points up this season. I wouldn't be surprised if they get into the top half of the table.

"It was a very tight game, even though we edged the chances. It was going to take a moment of magic to win the match and step up Luke O'Nien.

"It was a great time to score and a great strike. Then we showed resilience and there were some really good performances.

"Some real graft was shown and the captain (Adam El-Abd) has said at the end of the game these are the games that count. Not the 4-0 wins but the 1-0's when you have to dig deep.

"I am very proud of them."

Defensively, Wycombe have been exemplary lately with a second successive clean sheet and, with some criticism earlier in the season, the defence looks well drilled and organised currently.

Ainsworth added: "Adam and Anthony Stewart are developing a very good relationship with Dan Scarr not far behind and Max Muller and Will De Havilland.

"We have some very good defenders here and Joe Jacobson is back to his best. I am also really pleased with Sido Jombati and Scott Brown and the whole team put a real shift in."

The home form has been a shining light so far, with Wycombe traditionally better away in recent years.

Ainsworth explained there are a few factors as to why there may have been an improvement so far this campaign.

"It has taken a while. The pitch is very good and we can play some good stuff in there," commented the Blues manager.

"Undoubtedly you see the names we have here now, the likes of Nathan Tyson and Craig Mackail-Smith. The signings we have made have been very satisfying.

"We have young lads coming through. There is no magic key to it. We just feel comfortable at home."
