Lewis savours Accy success

19 December 2012

Stuart Lewis says Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Accrington Stanley was the most enjoyable win of his career.

Lewis skippered the Blues in the absence of Gary Doherty, Matt Bloomfield and Dave Winfield and played a key role as the Wanderers secured their fourth win in five League 2 games thanks to goals from Bruno Andrade and Matt McClure.

“I’ve never enjoyed a victory as much as that,” Lewis told Chairboys Player. “There’s such a togetherness now and Gaz has built something that is brilliant. It’s a pleasure to be a part of.

“The first half really showed what we are about as a team. Going forward I don’t think anyone can live with us and the back four we had were phenomenal. We won the game in the first half and in the second half we showed another side to us as we can dig in as well.”

Lewis added: “At the minute I haven’t known a togetherness like it. People are there (at the training ground) until two or three in the afternoon and you wonder if they’ve got homes to go as they’re there staying to play head tennis and darts.

“We took that togetherness on to the pitch and that is testament to Gaz. We’re looking up and putting the last couple of months behind us.

“It’s only six weeks or so ago that we were bottom of the league and that’s the reality. We all took a look at ourselves and that wasn’t where we wanted to be.

“We’re not going to say that P-word yet, but if we have a good Christmas and are playing well and the togetherness is still there come January and February then anything can happen.”

Chairboys host their Festive Fun Day on Saturday when Capital One Cup semi-finalists Bradford City make the trip down the M1 and Lewis believes the spirit within the group will help keep the good run going.

He said: “I’ve heard a few bits describing us as the Crazy Gang, it’s not to that extent, but we come to places and you can hear how loud our music is.

“We attack things and we’re together as a group. We’ve got young players and we’ve got old players, but they’re all together as a group whether they are fit or not. The difference is that we are all pushing in the same direction and have a real spirit going.”

As well as the action on the pitch, there will be plenty of entertainment on offer around the ground, including a visit from Santa Claus himself. Singers from Holy Trinity Church, Bledlow, will be singing carols and there will be much more going on to get you into the festive spirit.

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