Player-manager Gareth Ainsworth put the seal on a vital win for Wycombe as they continued their climb away from the foot of the table with victory over fellow strugglers Bristol Rovers at Adams Park.

Joel Grant gave Wanderers an 11th-minute lead and Ainsworth's second in the 55th minute clinched Wycombe's win, while Rovers' woes were increased when they had Matthew Lund sent off in stoppage time.

It was the Chairboy's third league success in a row and puts them in 19th, with the Pirates down in 22nd, one point and one place above the relegation zone.

Rochdale's play-off push was jolted by a 3-2 defeat at home to York, who streaked into a 3-0 half-time lead through a double from Michael Potts and one for Jason Walker. Rhys Bennett and a Bobby Grant penalty briefly gave Dale hope. The Minstermen are 14th in the table.

Torquay beat Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 at Plainmoor to move up to eighth spot. Danny Stevens opened the scoring on 36 minutes and, after Matthew Saunders equalised on 73 for the visitors, Abu Ogogo's own goal gave the Gulls the points.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
