Wycombe boss Gary Waddock believes his side have "a fighting chance" of avoiding relegation following their 3-2 win over MK Dons.

Alex Revell and Dons' striker Aaron Wilbraham netted a brace apiece to leave the scores at 2-2, but Kevin Betsy popped up to fire home five minutes into stoppage time as the Chairboys secured a third straight win.

Wycombe are now five points from safety and Waddock said: "They had a never-say-die attitude, but on top of that they played. All we can do is win our games and on this evidence we`ve got a fighting chance."

The Chairboys boss continued: "The lads kept going right until the end and we thoroughly deserved the win. The commitment and desire we showed, the way we played, it was fantastic for everybody.

"And what a turnout from the fans - it was a great day for us. To come back from two equalisers in the position we`re in tells you a lot about that group."

On goal hero Betsy, Waddock added: "Kevin Betsy was outstanding - he loves this football club and it was nice for him to get the goal in the dying seconds of a derby game."
