Gareth Ainsworth says he is struggling to put into words just how proud he is of Wycombe’s performance at League 1 Portsmouth last night.
Wanderers blew their opponents away early on with a display of fast, attacking play and thoroughly deserved to secure their passage into the Southern area quarter-finals.
Ainsworth said: "It beggars belief they went out there and defended the way they did, some of the last-ditch defending was fantastic.
"Charles Dunne was in park football three years ago and he's come on leaps and bounds. Dave Winfield was outstanding tonight - a warrior and it was the best performance I've seen from him for a long time.
"Joel Grant's having a great season, he's a great player and he's proved that with that finish.
"I'm so pleased, so proud of them - I'm lost for words. These boys don't realise what they can achieve."
Ainsworth added: "I was never gifted with a great amount of skill like some of these players have got, but I have a heart as big as a lion. I'll keep going and I'll never give up. I want to give that to the boys.
"That's the first thing we do, we win our battles, our headers - we win everything, we fight, we scrap for every last piece of that ball we can get. When we've got it, then we can play."
The draw for the regional quarter-finals takes place on Soccer AM on Saturday.
