GARY Waddock felt his Wycombe side deserved their late equaliser yet again.

Wanderers struck in stoppage time for the second week running with Grant Basey's penalty earning a point at Stevenage.

It was a fair result in a game that lacked quality and Waddock was delighted to see his players continue to fight until the final whistle.

“It is the second game where we have gone right to the end and it tells you a lot about the players we have at the club,” he said.

“There were a number of fouls during the game and, in the end, we got one in the box and I was pleased for Basey because there was a lot of pressure on him.

“He has been down on our board for some time and you saw why. It gives us a chance of clawing ourselves out of the situation we are in.

“We thoroughly deserved a point. We have put ourselves in a position and, hopefully, we can continue picking up points to get out of the situation we are in.”

Waddock gave the nod to teenager Anthony Stewart in the heart of the defence for the crucial game and praised the defender's performance at full-time.

He said: “I thought he was excellent. For a young lad he came up against an experienced player and I thought he dealth with him really well.

“He is physically strong and deals with things in the air and that was the reason behind it.”
