Gaz: The fans are making a difference

21 December 2012

Gareth Ainsworth believes the level of support his side have received from Wanderers fans is a major reason behind their fine recent form.

Chairboys are unbeaten in their last five npower League 2 fixtures, winning four of those games, but face a tough test on Saturday when Capital One Cup semi-finalists Bradford City visit Adams Park (k.o 3pm).

 “It’s amazing what they do and how they get involved,” Ainsworth told Chairboys Player. “It’s a two-way thing. It’s not just the players going over at the end of the game, it’s not just the smiles on everyone’s faces, it’s the passion that they show by coming week in week out.

“There were not thousands at Accrington, but the few who came were singing their hearts out. They made themselves heard and out-sung Accrington. 

“We went over to them at the end of the game, they were buzzing and we were buzzing. They are just as big a part of it as any player or manager.

“They need to know that so thank you very much and keep coming down and getting behind us because it’s no coincidence that since that all came together we started getting results.”

Wycombe go into the game on the back of that fine 2-0 victory at Accrington Stanley and Ainsworth says he wants his squad to use their recent performances as a springboard for the rest of the season.

 He said: “I don’t want anyone to get carried away, but the performances have been there and what we’ve got to do now is build on what we’ve done.

“We’ve got back on track and are somewhere we want to be. It’s great form but I’ve said so many times that I’d love to win every game from now until the end of the season, but it’s not going to happen. We’ll try though and I believe we can win every game.

“We’ll be going for it on Saturday but we’ve got a tough team coming down in Bradford. They’ve had a good cup run and will be up for it and are buzzing, but they’ll be coming up against some boys who are also buzzing. It’ll be a good game.

“I believe they’ll be 4-4-2 and they play two guys upfront who have caused a lot of damage this season and have two good wingers which is very similar to ourselves.”

There will be plenty of entertainment on offer around the ground on Saturday, including a visit from Santa Claus himself and Christmas carols sung by the choir from Holy Trinity Church, Bledlow.

Tickets for the game start from just £5 for juniors and £16 for adults - book by calling the ticket office on 01494 441118, online or by visiting the Information Centre at Adams Park or the Eden Store.
