Boss: Squad taking it in their stride

1 February 2013

Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth says his squad have adapted well to this week’s change of schedule as they prepare for Monday’s trip to league leaders Gillingham.

Ainsworth, whose side haven’t played a competitive game since beating Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday 19th January, has altered their training days after the clash with Martin Allen’s men was moved back for TV coverage.
He told Chairboys Player: “It’s difficult because if you bring them in every day for 16 days, you don’t lose the hunger but it becomes a little bit monotonous and you have to break things up.

“We’ve planned our days off and we plan our games seriously – myself, the staff, the medical team and even the chef. We try and get everything right and work on flying on the game day.

“This week there has been a serious plan with Saturday and Sunday becoming our Thursday and Friday - that’s where we will do our main planning for Gillingham.

“During the week is all about training and keeping spirits high. We’ll be in this weekend training and getting some serious work in for Gillingham.”

The 39-year-old added: “It happens and the word professional comes to the front then. You’ve got to be adaptable and you’ve got to be organised. It’s all things that are experiences for me which is great for my managerial career and I’m sure it won’t be the last time I get these things.
“The staff have been great and the players couldn’t have done better for me. I’m very happy with where we are at the moment.”
