Wycombe boss Gary Waddock was disappointed after losing 4-3 to Preston, but was happy with his side's battling spirit.

Early goals from Neil Mellor and Iain Hume were cancelled out by Gareth Ainsworth and Scott Donnelly for the hosts. Stuart Beavon gave Wycombe an unlikely half-time lead before Hume and finally Mellor gave Preston a seventh consecutive league win with the only goals of the second half.

He said: "Obviously I'm disappointed for the lads. Going from 2-0 down to turn it around and then our own style of play has ended up costing us a point or a result at all from the game. The goals we gave away were naive from our point of view.

"When you go 2-0 down against a top side like that you think it's going to be a very long evening but the lads turned it around and credit to them. It was well worth the entrance fee.

"It was an excellent game of football from end to end and we gave them a scare and they're a very good side.

"We could have laid down and it could have been a long evening and a hammering but we recovered very well, but got caught with a couple of counter attacks and we came away with nothing."
