Taylor: We're still on course

Wycombe boss Peter Taylor insists his side's promotion push is still on course despite his side registering their fourth draw in five games at Barnet.

Chris Zebroski's second-half strike salvaged a 1-1 draw - their fourth draw in five games. The frontman, who only won an appeal against his sending-off at the weekend hours before kick-off, turned in second-half substitute Matty Phillips' back-post cross in the 68th minute

"To some people one win in five could be seen as a downturn in our form but to me we are still playing well and we are still up there," said Taylor.

"If we are drawing away from home then I will be a happy man. I'd have settled for a draw before the start of the game and I'll settle for a point again on Saturday."

Brentford boss Andy Scott fired a broadside at the Football League for putting on a full programme of matches on a Champions League night.

Less than 4,000 turned out to watch the Bees comfortably ease past Morecambe with a 3-1 win that stretched their unbeaten run to 11 games.

But Scott said: "It doesn't make sense to me that there's a full fixture list when you've got Manchester United on the box. You can't blame the Morecambe fans for not wanting to make the trip and I think it's something that needs looking at.

"We played some of the best football of the season and it's a shame that more people weren't here to see it, but we've got a big game against Shrewsbury on Saturday and hopefully it'll be different."

Bury boss Alan Knill was furious with his side's sluggish start to their 2-1 defeat against in-form Rotherham.

He said: "If you want to do well you have to keep clean sheets and we are just not mentally strong enough at the start of games."
