Wycombe manager Gary Waddock was delighted to see his side show a range of abilities as they dispatched Rotherham 1-0.

Gareth Ainsworth's first-half header was enough for Wycombe to cement their place in the automatic promotion places in League Two as the visitors had Jason Taylor sent off in stoppage time for kicking out at Stuart Beavon.

Speaking after the match Waddock said: "We asked the players to take care of the performance and I thought we showed a little bit of everything."

He added: "In the first half we had spells where we were stroking the ball around and in the second half we stood up to everything they threw at us.

"Rotherham are a big, strong side and a good one of that and we stood up to the physical side as well, so overall I'm delighted.

"Apart from Nikki Bull's `Gordon Banks' save I thought we defended well. It was an outstanding save and he, along with everyone in the squad, has played a part in getting us to where we are now.

"Fozzy (Danny Foster) hasn't been in the team for a while but he's come in at left-back and he produces a cross like that for Gaz (Ainsworth) to stick in the back of the net."

Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore was left disappointed that a strong defensive display did not pay dividends.

Moore said: "We defended well and our two centre-backs have done alright again.

"Obviously I'm disappointed that we haven't got anything and the way in which we opened up for half an hour, but for the vast majority of the game I think we can take some credit for what we have done here."
