Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper Scott Brown explained the late defeat to Coventry was tough to take as the Blues succumbed to a late Marc McNulty penalty.

Brown was a virtual spectator throughout after a solid defensive display from Wanderers.

However, he was disappointed that they couldn't hold on for a point which he felt was thoroughly deserved.

Brown said: "It was very tough to take.

"There was nothing in the game at all. It was a 0-0 and they didn't have many chances.

"Unfortunately they got a soft-ish penalty. They are a good side and fair play to them but we are gutted.

"We have just said in the dressing room we are third in the league with 11 cup finals to go and I think if we were offered that at the start, I think we would have taken it.

"Obviously we are disappointed but we are at the right end of the table."

After the poor defeat to Morecambe on Saturday, Brown felt that there was definitely a positive reaction despite the narrow loss to the Sky Blues.

He added: "There was definitely a reaction. Only Nick Freeman could come out of Saturday's match with any credit.

"We were off it on Saturday but in this game we were solid and difficult to beat and there was nothing in the game on a difficult night.

"It was a hell of an effort from the groundsmen to get the game on but it wasn't to be."
