Ainsworth: Loss tough to take

Manager Gareth Ainsworth found Wycombe Wanderer's 1-0 defeat at Bury particularly hard to take.

Anton Forrester's strike was enough to win the battle between two of League Two's struggling sides in difficult conditions at Gigg Lane.

Bury jumped above their rivals into 20th place, two points clear of the relegation zone.

For Wanderers, huge emphasis now falls on next Saturday's clash with 17th-placed Accrington, who sit three points above them.

"It's hard to take and it's been a tough day," Ainsworth said.

"It's a tough one against one of our rivals so we're going to have to dig deep now and next week's game becomes absolutely enormous.

"I've told the boys 'don't be thinking about anything else now', they're in a battle and will be working hard until they get out of it.

"But there's no worries at the moment. It's all on Accrington next week and that's going to be a huge game. I'm looking forward to it.

"I do feel we've got enough to turn it round, without a shadow of a doubt.

"I'm not surprised the fans are getting worried and they've got every right to because it's not been good enough.

"But I'm in charge to put that right and will be doing next week against Accrington. We should have had three points away from home against them and I'm sure we'll get it at home."
