Wycombe boss Gary Waddock was full of praise for his side as they maintained their League Two promotion push with a 3-0 victory over struggling Morecambe.

Two goals from Scott Rendell helped Wanderers to the three points but once again it was the performance of veteran midfielder Gareth Ainsworth that caught the eye.

Waddock said: "He's outstanding and a credit to the game and he was everywhere again. He has an amazing enthusiasm for the game that shines through and lifts everyone around him."

He added: "He did well for the penalty and his goal was a terrific piece of skill. But the whole team did their bit with two goals goals from Scott Rendell and some good forward play.

"I was very pleased with the result and the three points and also delighted that we kept a clean sheet as well which is always a boost against a team like Morecambe."

Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy was furious with the decision to give Wycombe the penalty which he said changed the game.

He said: "Garry Hunter is one of the most honest pros you could find and he said there was no contact and if the referee was up with play I'm sure he would have seen that.

"It was another decision that really went against us because we were the better team until then but that is what happens when you are at the bottom of the table.

"The second goal was a killer and we should have done much better than we did defensively and the third goal before half time probably killed the game.

"But I have to give my lads credit for the way they played in the second half and they deserved a consolation goal at least. They could have rolled over and lost by a greater margin but they didn't and we can take something from the game."
