We deserved a point: Coley

17 March 2015

John Coleman felt his side fully deserved the point at promotion-chasing Wycombe.

Wanderers took the lead through a Sam Wood header before Terry Gornell drilled home the equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

Piero Mingoia scored a wonder goal on the hour before Alfie Mawson's deflected effort made it 2-2.

"Wycombe are a good side and for long periods they had us on the back foot," said Coleman. "We didn't set out for it to be like that but the most pleasing aspect was that we dealt with a lot of free kicks and balls into the box and stood firm.

"We scored two smashing goals and the only disappointing thing is, once we scored the second, we retreated into our shells and invited the pressure.

"Terry deserved his goal as he has been working tirelessly while Piero's is a superb strike.

"We then defended stoutly and put heads and bodies on the line and I don't think anyone can begrudge us a point. I know they had the lion's share of the possession and pinned us back but we defended well and showed great spirit and desire.

"What we have here is an honest bunch of lads with no airs and graces who are very good footballers."
