Ainsworth proud of 'best' win
WYCOMBE made it five wins out of their last seven games in League Two with their 1-0 victory over Argyle at Home Park.
They achieved it without suspended seven-goal midfielder Joel Grant while some of their most experienced players were ruled out by injury.
So depleted were their resources that Wanderers named only six substitutes instead of the seven they were permitted.
Wycombe's two centre-backs were 18-year-old Kortney Hause and Anthony Stewart, 20.

That was because of injuries to Gary Doherty, Leon Johnson and Dave Winfield, but the visitors still kept a clean sheet.
Player-manager Gareth Ainsworth, 37, was proud of his makeshift team's performance.
Ainsworth took over as boss from Gary Waddock at the end of September and results have improved considerably of late.
He said: "In its own way, this is probably one of the best performances under me so far.
"When things are going well the game becomes easy but today we had to stand up to an onslaught, especially in the second half.
"I thought the lads were absolutely outstanding. We had young players all over the pitch.
"Anthony Stewart only found out he was playing before the warm-up because Charles Dunne had to pull out with a foot injury.
"I'm just immensely proud of the youngsters, as well as the old ones, and of the way we defended."
Ainsworth added: "Plymouth is a tough place to come to and win. I have not won many times here in my career so it's a really good scalp.
"We didn't attack as well as we can. We missed Joel Grant and Dean Morgan.
"They add something to the dimension of our attack, but I thought Jo Kuffour was an unsung hero and Matt McClure took his goal well.
"Bruno Andrade is doing things he has never done in his career before, playing in a midfield four.
"And you have got me on the other side, trying to lead by example but getting more and more tired with every minute.
"It was a real team good performance. I thought the lads were superb."
