Gaz: We've come a long way

17 April 2013

Player/manager Gareth Ainsworth highlighted the progress his side has made after the draw with Northampton Town.

“Three clean sheets in five is superb and it’s a really good start to Matt Ingram’s professional career.”

“Charles Dunne was magnificent. He didn’t get bullied and he’s grown as a player. He heads, he tackles and he’s becoming a man.

He said: “A clean sheet is a massive positive. Other plusses are Marvin McCoy coming in, Leon Johnson had a great game and Junior probably had his best game for the club.

Ainsworth reserved special praise for his back five and attacker Junior Morias, who impressed after coming on as a second-half substitute.

“Who knows what we can achieve next season, but I’m excited on the back of performances like that.”

“We’ve got ourselves to the middle of the table and we showed how far we’ve come.

He added: “We lost at their place in November and went bottom of the Football League, but we’ve grown as a team, as a club, since then.

“It was a very good team performance and I’m proud of every single one of them.”

“I’m very proud,” he said. “That’s the minimum now – we battled well and made the right decisions at the right time.

Ainsworth’s men went toe-to-toe with the promotion chasers at Adams Park, six months after dropping to the foot of the Football League following a 3-1 defeat in the reverse fixture.
