GARY Waddock hailed his Wycombe side after their weekend win over Sheffield United and said they have set themselves a new standard.
The Blues boss was delighted to toast his 100th game in charge at Adams Park with a solid 1-0 win over promotion-chasing Blades.
A single Stuart Beavon goal was enough to end a run of five games without a win or a goal as they also kept their first clean-sheet of the season.
“Considering the run that we have been on, to put in a performance like that and get a result is all credit to the players,” said Waddock.
“When we work as hard as that we are a good team. They put everything into that today and I am delighted for every single one of them.
“We have to build on what we have done today. We have to do it throughout the season and be more consistent in that type of performance.
“They are second in the table and are probably Premier League in the size of the club, the fan base and the set-up and for us to get the result will gives us a real boost.
“It was just fantastic from start to the finish. The work-rate was unbelievable. What a way to top your 100th game. We have had one or two really important results since I have been here but that wasn't bad today.”
Waddock admits he has been scratching his head to put his finger on their poor run and exactly where that performance has been hiding.
He said: “I thanked the players for performance (after the game) but I said 'where was that two week's ago'. Who knows? That is why this game can be frustrating at times.”
But the Blues boss saved special praise for the home fans who out-sung a hefty Blades away support for most of the match.
He said “I have to say the fans and the crowd? What an atmosphere they created by the way. They helped us when our backs were against the wall and the noise was brilliant.”
