With another season in League Two now all but secured, Ainsworth took the opportunity to single out his teenage keeper for special praise.
A second-half brace from Jacques Maghoma ended the Chairboys' hopes of recording three successive away league wins but Ainsworth remained upbeat.
He said: "We had a lot of young kids out there getting experience and I thought Matty Ingram was outstanding.
"He kept us in the game with a couple of great saves and he's going to be one hell of a goalkeeper."
Ainsworth continued: "A couple of individual mistakes cost us goals but Burton were a different kettle of fish to the side we beat earlier in the season."
