Gaz: Take full advantage

12 February 2013

Gareth Ainsworth has urged his players to take full advantage of this evening’s (Tuesday) game with Bradford City going ahead.

The Adams Park playing surface passed a 10am inspection this morning after heavy snowfall on Sunday added to an already-wet pitch.

And with only six npower League 2 games on tonight, the Blues have a chance to continue their surge up the table.

“It’s one of our games in hand as I don’t think everyone is playing,” Ainsworth told Chairboys Player. “It’s almost like we’ve earned this right to have a little crack at the table.

“We’ll have a go to see where we can project ourselves to. I said to the boys ‘you’ve earned the right for this game on Tuesday’. I’m sure that the team I put out will believe that they can go and win the game and I believe we can.

“At home we’re turning this place into a real good fortress and I’m pleased for the boys.”

Wanderers have no fresh injury concerns ahead of tonight’s game, despite playing three games in eight days and Ainsworth believes a major reason for that is the training methods he implemented when he first took charge.

He said: “It’s now part of the management to get the recovery right. What we’ve done since I took over is very professional training. It’s very intensive - yoga, warm-downs, fitness work and all that is paying off now.

“Injury prevention is also a big thing and things that we put in place 16 weeks ago are now paying dividends and we’re not getting any injuries, which is great.

“I think that’s because of what we introduced and that wasn’t going to happen overnight, but now we’re stronger and we’re fitter and that’s great to see.”
