Waddock bemoans poor week

Next Story

Wycombe manager Gary Waddock insists his side have to bounce back after they suffered their third loss of the week, this time a 2-1 defeat to Accrington.

After Scott Rendell had cancelled out Joe Jacobson's first-half strike, Phil Edwards bagged a late winner to dent the Chairboys' hopes of automatic promotion.

"We have had an awful week, it's as simple as that. We have lost three in a week and have conceded a number of goals from set-pieces and that's cost us," he said.

"Up to the last week, we had done really well. I am not looking for any excuses. We failed to deal with two set-pieces which has cost us the game.

"We have a game on Tuesday and the sooner we get a win the better and then we can kick on from there. We have got a good group of players here who have done well this season, we are still in a healthy position and we now need to put this week behind us."

Accrington manager John Coleman believes his side were fortunate to claim all three points.

Coleman said: "We rode our luck a little bit in the first half, Wycombe were on top. They are a good side and have some excellent players.

"We had a bit of fortune with the goal being disallowed then I thought we slowly warmed into the game. We scored against the run of play to take the lead and then we have conceded possibly at the strongest we have been in the game and that's disappointing as it was a mistake by Phil Edwards.

"In our previous two away wins we have scored and led, been pegged back and then scored again so I was hoping that would happen again for us and it did.

"It was an unbelievable finish by Phil Edwards and what better way to make up for his mistake than to score a header like that. I don't think you will see a better header."
