Ainsworth: No one secret to away success

9 April 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says there is no one secret to the Chairboys’ impressive away form this season.

Blues have won nine times on their travels this season and head to high-flying Burton Albion this evening (Tuesday) full of confidence after successive 1-0 victories away from Adams Park.

“The way that I play is to attack with pace and it’s very counter-attacking,” Ainsworth told

“When we go away from home the onus is on teams to come at us and try to break us down, which leaves gaps for us to go and exploit.

“The spirit of the boys being away together has been a big plus. The coach journeys have been good this season and I’ve really tried to galvanise everything and we have a bit of banter on the coach.

“We have a quiz and I’ve introduced a few other things, hopefully they’ve all added to us being good on the road this season.

“We’ve been better away from home than at home this season so we need to sort that out, but we’ve got five games to go this season, three at home two away, and hopefully we pick up a few more points yet.”

Wanderers go into the game on the back of a well-deserved win at M40 rivals Oxford United, while promotion-chasing Burton were beaten 7-1 at Port Vale last Friday.

Ainsworth added: “We watched Burton on Friday night against Port Vale and in a funny way we didn’t learn a great deal because it was a real hammering, but hopefully we can go and cause some damage as well.

“We did well against them at home, and away from home we will try and replicate that and get the points.

“Gary Rowett has done a great job there. His budget is very low and a lot of people were tipping Burton for the bottom five so he’s done a fantastic job.

“We’ll have to be on our mettle and be really up for this one. It’s my job to make sure everyone is ready and we had a big occasion on Saturday, but it’s my job to back it up.”
