Ingram's No.1 ambition

5 April 2013

Goalkeeper Matt Ingram says he is determined to make the most of his chance and establish himself as first choice for the Wanderers.

Ingram was recalled by Gareth Ainsworth from a successful loan spell at Oxford City in March and the former John Hampden School pupil has since gone on to impress in his two appearances for the Chairboys.

The 19-year-old is in line to play in front of his biggest crowd yet on Saturday when the Blues make the short trip to Oxford United and Ingram says he is fully focused on retaining the No.1 shirt.

He said: “The biggest crowd I’ve played in front of at non-league was just short of 3,000 at Chester and that was on a Tuesday night – the grounds are getting bigger and bigger.

“As a boy you always dream of playing in front of big crowds and that’s happening now, even if they are away fans giving you abuse.

“I've got another six games to establish my place and do my best.I’ll take it as it comes and hopefully I can be No.1 next season, all I can do is give it my best.”

Ingram kept his first professional clean sheet in Monday’s 1-0 victory at Morecambe and made a stunning save in that game, tipping Jordan Burrow’s header against the crossbar.

He added: “I’m delighted with the clean sheet. The first game (against Accrington) we were unlucky to concede in the 94thminute and I don’t think they had a shot other than the one that went in.

“I think I’ve done alright, I’ve not had a great deal to do in either game, but what I have done I think I’ve done OK.”
