Thommo and Rocky keen to bounce back

Garry Thompson and Ryan Allsop are looking to put Tuesday's defeat behind them as Wycombe head to Newport County tomorrow (3pm k.o.).

It was a frustrating night as the Chairboys fell to a 1-0 defeat at Cambridge, but Ryan hopes that was just a minor blip in a run of good form.

He said: "Everyone is feeling confident. Obviously it wasn't the best performance on Tuesday night but we are very much looking forward to putting that right on Saturday."

A big deflection from Josh Coulson's header wrong-footed Rocky in the Blues goal for the only goal at the Abbey Stadium, and the on-loan stopper is looking to put that defeat behind him.

He said: "It was a frustrating defeat to take. I don't think they've had a shot on target and they've ended up winning the game so it's frustrating on our part. But we have got look past that and focus on Saturday.

"It's going to be a tough game. We never underestimate anybody. We take each game as it comes and we will have to put a performance in to get points on the board.

"We never take any games for granted, we know we have to go out there and put a performance in to ensure we get the three points."

Tuesday night did see the return of Garry Thompson to the fold as he made his return following a three match suspension, and the forward is now keen to break into the starting line-up.

He said: "There's nothing more frustrating than being out of the team and having to sit and watch. But the boys have done fantastically well and hopefully we can kick on after a disappointing result on Tuesday.

"We had two great home wins, which I think we needed. We have struggled a bit at home so to get two 1-0 wins was superb, and I think we were very unlucky away at Northampton.

"I want to come back in and try and get back into the side, but I'll bide my time and hopefully get back in sooner rather than later."

As the season heads into the crucial stages, Thommo hopes the Wanderers can build a bit of momentum and challenge as high as they can in the table.

He said: "It will be nice to go there and start a run. There's 14 games left in the season and we want to try and put a run together because any team that does that will cement a play-off place and hopefully that can be us."
