Ainsworth reveals Chairboys bug
Gareth Ainsworth explained Wycombe had been hit by illness before Paris Cowan-Hall scored twice to help them beat Torquay 3-2.
The Chairboys trailed 2-1 at the break after Ade Azeez and Krystian Pearce struck either side of Jo Kuffour's goal for the home side.
But Cowan-Hall netted two headers to hand Wycombe the lead for the first time and inflict a third successive defeat on Torquay.
The comeback was all the more remarkable given Ainsworth lost four players - including influential duo Gary Doherty and Matt McClure - through illness and he praised his other goalscorer, Jo Kuffour, for playing despite being unwell.
"There's a little bit of illness flouting about," he said.
"I had four players call in sick this morning - including Gary Docherty and Matt McClure, big players for us.
"Jo Kuffour actually played with an illness so I think there's something going around here and energy levels are down.
"But we've proved we have a team of real workers and togetherness and I thought we thoroughly deserved the win.
"I brought him (Cowan-Hall) here as a wide right predominantly because we were 4-4-2 and that brought us a lot of success last season.
"But this season he can play down the middle. As a forward he's a nuisance. He's got pace he's got tricks and he can pop up anywhere.
"I know how good he is in the air, that's why I brought him here, I saw that at Plymouth last year. I was so pleased when we acquired him and I think Paris will be a big player for us this season."
