With the end of the season just 90 minutes away winger Sam Wood is looking to enter the summer break with a final three points in tow.
A win against promotion-bound Port Vale tomorrow could see the Blues finish as high as 11thif results go their way, a fantastic turnaround since the permanent appointment of Gareth Ainsworth in November.
The 26-year-old endured a frustrating start to his Wanderers career after straining knee ligaments in just the second league game of the season against Gillingham, but he returned with some impressive all-action performances that has seen him feature 34 times under Gaz’s stewardship.
And Wood told Chairboys Player that the news of the manager’s contract extension should see a continued upturn in the club’s fortunes.
He said: “As a team we’ve come a long way, we’ve had a lot of injuries and they’ve come back and we’ve got a few players in and we just kicked on really.
“We’ve got a good team spirit mainly due to Gaz and it’s been fantastic to be around for the last few months and everyone’s got a smile on their face now and that’s what football is all about.
“Since I’ve come back I’ve kicked on and Gaz seems to like me so I’ve played a lot of games and hopefully that carries on for next year.”
The winger could also be in line for a personal accolade at the end of the campaign with his opening-day thunderbolt against York shortlisted for the club’s Goal of the Season award.
But Wood insists he’d sacrifice all personal glory to send the fans into the off-season in good spirits with a victory tomorrow.
He added: “There’s been some good goals this season to be fair. It’s nice to be talked about and it’ll be a nice achievement for me to pick up an award but I’m not too fussed as long as we finish on a high tomorrow, that’s the main thing to me. I’m a team player and it’s not about individual awards for me.”
