Wycombe manager Gary Waddock praised his own defence and remained optimistic that Kevin Betsy will not be seriously injured after a 2-1 win at Lincoln.

Gavin McCallum smashed home an unstoppable volley in the 17th minute to stun the visitors but Andy Sandell scored two second-half goals to claim the win. Lincoln goalkeeper Joe Anyon misjudged Sandell's free-kick and conceded the equaliser before the Chairboys left-back headed home from close range with most of the defence watching.

Waddock said: "It was important for us to get back to winning ways and we got another result and three points. Betsy looked bright. He was taken out for the penalty. He got whacked and it hit a nerve but hopefully he's not too bad."

He added: "It wasn't pretty but we got the points. In the second half there were opportunities for us to kill the game but credit to the Lincoln keeper. He pulled off two great saves.

"Our back four was very strong. They stood up to everything that was thrown at them.

"Lincoln are scrapping for their lives but we showed that when we have to compete and be physical we can stand up to the challenge."
