BLUES caretaker boss Gareth Ainsworth said he will work day and night to stop Wycombe leaking goals from set-plays.
Wanderers went down to a 3-0 loss at Dagenham in the 39-year-old's first game in charge of the side as they dropped into the League Two relegation zone.
Set-pieces cost them against a direct Daggers side and Ainsworth said they have to plug their defence if they want to turn the corner.
He said: “We knew what was coming and we practised set-plays on Thursday and Friday. The penalty really killed us. No-one appealed the referee seemed to give it after the linesman flagged so that one was hard to take.
“We have to tighten up on set-plays. If I have to work every day then that is what we will do.”
Ainsworth called for passion before the game in east London and was happy with the commitment his players gave him.
He said: “The lads are on the floor at the moment – it is not a nice place to be. We have to pick them up off the floor and start winning again.
“The fans were brilliant and got behind me. I am going to give my all for this job and even on the way home I will be looking at Plymouth to see what we can do to beat them.
“The application was back along with the drive and the passion. The lads were really up for the game so it is hard to take. It is never easy when you are the bottom of the league but we can turn it around – hopefully starting at home to Plymouth.
“We have two winnable games now. It is a very, very important week. We haven't been this low for a long time. It is tough.”
