Kuffour relishing Gillingham return

3 February 2013

Jo Kuffour says the Wanderers shouldn’t fear Monday’s trip to former club Gillingham, despite tipping Martin Allen’s side for promotion.

The Chairboys go into the game in good form, having won seven of their last 11 npower League 2 fixtures and Kuffour believes Gareth Ainsworth’s side will pose a real threat to the  high-fliers.

“It will be a good game,” he told Chairboys Player. “They’re at the top of the table and are looking for promotion which I think they’ll get this year.

“I really liked the club when I was there. I had a good time, they have good fans and had good management, it should be an exciting game.

“A few of the players from my time have left. Monty (Lewis Montrose) who was here (at Wycombe) is now at Oxford, but I’m still friends with a few of the boys like Charlie Lee, (Chris) Whelpdale and (Danny) Kedwell so it will be enjoyable to see them again.

“We know on our day when we’re playing well that we can beat any team in the league. They’ve been stuttering a bit recently and I think it will be an exciting game for everyone playing and the fans watching.

“We’ll work hard in training and hopefully get our tactics right so we can go there on Monday and get the three points.”

Kuffour has scored twice in his last three games and the 31-year-old says he is confident he can take that form into the rest of the season.

He added: “In my career when I score one I go on a little run. It took a little while to get it here because of a few injuries and not playing in the team sometimes, but I’ve got a couple now and I’m just looking to push from now until the end of the season.

“I just want to enjoy my football, keep playing well and I know I’ll score goals. I haven’t really set myself a target as such.

“Not doing a pre-season can have a big impact on your season. Even though I was doing a lot by myself during the time I was off it does take a while to get back into the swing of things. I’ve scored a couple now and confidence plays a big part, so you’ll definitely see the best of me now.”
