Gareth Ainsworth has been appointed player/manager of npower League Two strugglers Wycombe.

The 39-year-old, who had been in caretaker charge since Gary Waddock left at the end of September, has signed a contract at Adams Park initially until the end of the season.

During his time in temporary control, Ainsworth guided the Chairboys to a first home league win of the season and a place in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy area quarter-finals. They sit 22nd in League Two, off the bottom on goal difference, with just three wins from 15 matches.
