Ainsworth: We'll learn from setback

15 February 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says he learnt a lot about his side during Tuesday’s defeat to Bradford City.

Wanderers weren’t at their best against the Capital One Cup finalists, but have the chance to make amends on Saturday when they travel to Bristol Rovers in search of their fourth win in five games.

 “A loss isn’t always a bad thing,” Ainsworth told Chairboys Player. “Sometimes it can galvanise you, sometimes it can teach you what’s wrong, or sometimes you end up losing another.

“You have to work on your weaknesses, spot what was wrong, correct it, push on and work for the future. That’s what we’ll do and hopefully we can turn it around for Saturday.

“Again it’s a tough game, John Ward’s got them very organised. I went to watch them with Dobbo last week and they’re a good side.

“They’re in a very false position in the league. We’re going to have to be at our best to get anything from there.”

Ainsworth is expecting an entertaining contest at the Memorial Stadium as the hosts are also in a rich vein of form, winning four of their last five.

He said: “They’ve got some good players. They work hard and they will try to pass it around. I think we lost our passing a little bit on Tuesday night.

“We tended to misplace a few things and there were a few bad decisions, but these are all thing that I can put right and we’ve been working on them.

“I think you’ll see a good, entertaining game with a good atmosphere. It’s a big club and with the history from this season it will be quite a fiery atmosphere and rightly so.

“That’s why we’re in football and it will be a great spectacle for League 2.”
