Adebayo Akinfenwa bagged a goal in each half, the second coming from the penalty spot, to move to 12 for the season.

Chris Hackett added a third goal before Joel Grant reduced the arrears from the penalty spot for a Wanderers team that held their own for long periods.

Ainsworth said: "We created a lot of chances and we simply haven't taken them. We hit the post twice from less than six yards both times and Charles Dunne went one-on-one with the keeper at the end, we've got to start putting those away.

"We have created quite a few chances in this game and it is getting difficult to keep talking about the chances we're creating in games without taking them."

He added: "Maybe we commit too many men forward when we attack and because of that we might need a change in formation or a change in personnel because we're starting to drift from the teams above us."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
