Gaz calling for home improvements

12 April 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says he wants his side to make Adams Park a fortress from now until the end of the season, starting with the visit of Aldershot Town on Saturday (k.o 3pm).

Only three teams have won more games away from home than the Chairboys this campaign, but the Blues have faltered at times in front of their own supporters.

However, Ainsworth’s men have three matches remaining at Adams Park and Wanderers’ boss wants to sign off the season in style.

“The last home game seems a while ago, even though it was only two weeks and the feeling after that game wasn’t great,” he told Chairboys Player.

“We thought we deserved a point and it was very cruel to lose it in the last minute.

“Morecambe and Oxford were two fantastic results, probably ensuring safety now and Burton have won 11 out of 12 at home so that was always going to be tough.

“To put the home form back on the map this Saturday would be good and it’s a big game as Aldershot will be fighting for their lives.

“We’ll be up for this one and I want to finish in the top half, I’ve made no secret of that. To get that we need to beat teams like Aldershot at home and then take this into next season.”

Andy Scott’s side make the trip to Adams Park bottom of the table, but Ainsworth is well aware of the threat they will pose.

He added: “They don’t want to go down and Andy Scott is no mug, he’ll be on it and we’ll have to be on it too.

“I’ve seen them a few times this season and they’ve changed managers. They get forward and score goals and recently they’ve been scoring more than they have the whole season.

“The firepower seems to be hitting home, but remembering at their place I think we can get at them. When we play and go forward we can take teams. Everyone that was at Oxford or at games earlier in the season saw we can take defences apart and I’ll be working on that.”
