Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth hailed his side for righting the wrongs of the defeat at Coventry City to beat Newport County 2-0 at Adams Park.

Goals from Nathan Tyson and Adebayo Akinfenwa did the damage as Wycombe sit fourth in League Two.

Ainsworth said: “The balance we got was spot on after the Coventry game.

“When we get the balance right we are good side. There was the right mix between possession and good balls forward at the right time and it was epitomised by Bayo’s goal.

“He has got that ability and he can only do that if the ball into him is good. We worked the angles and it was a great all-round performance.

“The back five were imperious and Dan Scarr has probably had his best game for us. Sido Jombati and Dominic Gape played well out of position and I thought it was an excellent result.”

The first goal from Tyson was a wonderful team goal and Ainsworth admitted that it was down to hard work in training leading up to the game.

He added: “We have worked hard in the week in getting the ball down and we did some pattern work on Christmas Eve and I am pleased that the boys didn’t rush off.

“They were keen to get what went wrong on Friday night to put that right for this game so the pattern work we did was great.

“We saw those in evidence here. The goal needed finishing and Tys is lethal on his left foot.”

Ebere Eze also produced a good display after a quieter couple of games previously and the Wycombe boss hailed the special talent the QPR loanee has.

“The home form for Ebs is unquestionable.” added Ainsworth.

“At Adams Park on a good pitch you are going to get the best out of that boy.

“He still has a lot to learn but he is learning game by game and minute by minute.

“If QPR can get a player back who is going to add to their squad I will have done my job.

“I am hoping I can see him in the hoops soon knowing I have played a big part in that.

“I think the fact that a team like Wycombe Wanderers can challenge for third place at this stage of the season is phenomenal and they have shown the belief that they really want to be there and that is all I need to see so lets keep out feet on the ground.”
