Wood on Wanderers return

17 October 2012

Sam Wood says he persuaded caretaker boss Gareth Ainsworth to allow him to play longer than intended against Watford on Tuesday.

Wood, who has missed the last seven weeks with a knee injury, was only pencilled in to play the first half of the 2-0 victory, but the winger felt fit enough to stay out on the pitch.

“It’s a good feeling, it’s been a long time,” Wood told Chairboys Player. “It’s just good to get out there, get my boots on and kick a ball around, instead of sitting in the physio room and then doing running. I enjoyed it and I just want to get back into the first team.”

Wood added: “I got 55 minutes, but I was only meant to play 45. I twisted Gaz’s arm to let me stay on longer and the physio came out and had a word with him and he had to pull me off – I took the rap for it.

“The pitch was a little bit heavy so it was a test for my leg as well and that helped out. I trained on Monday and that was tough and I was aching, but I got through the game and I’m just going to keep pushing on.”
