The big preview - Scunthorpe

13 December 2013

Wanderers contest their final home game before Christmas when Scunthorpe United come to town on Saturday.


Scunthorpe go into the game just one point from the summit of the table, but without a permanent manager after sacking Brian Laws in late November following the FA Cup defeat to Skrill Premier side and local rivals Grimsby Town.

Despite not winning in their last seven league outings, the Chairboys can take confidence from their previous performance – the 2-2 draw at Portsmouth.

Caretaker bosses Russ Wilcox and Tony Daws have overseen three consecutive wins since taking the reins as the Iron have climbed to fourth with a chance to top the table at the end of this afternoon.

Gareth Ainsworth
– talking to Chairboys Player
“We’ve had a lot of games lately – eight in four weeks or something like that. You end up as a manager getting a list of what you want to work on.

“If you’ve got a game on a Saturday and then on a Tuesday, you need to put that to bed before preparing for the next one. It’s a balancing act.

“A free week gives you a lot of time to put things in place and sessions follow on from each other.

“Hopefully by the end of the week we have the finished article and fingers crossed we will have on Saturday. I believe the lads are ready to go out there and win.”

Team News
