Matt McClure's 85th-minute goal was just reward for Wycombe's dominance, but in the dying seconds visiting keeper Jordan Archer was stopped from taking a goal-kick by a Gillingham fan who jumped on him.

Stewards dealt with the culprit, and with eight wins in 12, Ainsworth preferred to focus on his side's impressive display.

He said: "He will be dealt with by Gillingham and the authorities. I want to concentrate on the football really, what he did was wrong and he's given the rest of the Gillingham fans a bad name and they will be as annoyed as anyone.

"I don't think it hurt the keeper. Jordan's a tough lad.

"We could have had two or three goals if not more. To come to a place like Gillingham and we were up for it, ready for it.

"I was a little bit worried that we would be a bit rusty with no games for 16 days but those worries were soon put to bed when I saw the lads come out. The passion, the drive and the energy was awesome from the boys.

"The boys were outstanding, every single one, and I'm so glad Matt scored. He missed that one chance but that's his one a season. We had chances and (were) unfortunate not to be ahead earlier but we scored at a great time. I'm really proud."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
