Ainsworth: We're a different proposition

15 March 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says the Chairboys have grown as a team since the last time they faced Saturday’s opponents Northampton Town (k.o 3pm).

Wanderers’ defeat at Sixfields saw them drop to the foot of the League 2 table, but a fine of form has since helped the Blues climb the division.

“Northampton are a tough side and they’ll create chances,” Ainsworth told Chairboys Player. “They like to get the ball in the box so we know what’s coming.

“We had a good battle at Sixfields earlier on in the season. It was very early in my tenure, but it was a cracking battle.

“We created a lot of chances that day and I think Charles Dunne will have memories of missing a couple of sitters. He’s come on and I’m sure if he gets those again he’ll stick them in.

“I think we’ll give them a good game. It’s a different Wycombe, it’s a different spirit now even though it’s the same players.

“We’ve grown as a team and as a club, but I’m sure they have as well. To be in the top six at this stage of the season is very strong and the table doesn’t lie.”

Ainsworth believes 50 points would guarantee the Wanderers League 2 football next season, but he says he won’t allow his side to relax even after hitting that target.

He said: “It’s been a real good run we’ve had, but we can’t relax yet. The job isn’t complete and I really want to get over that 50-point line.

“I’ve seen the games that people have below us and I know it’s going to be tight this year.

“We still need to perform and go out to win games, but hopefully we can prove that we have moved on and prove that we are a better Wycombe then we were and Saturday will be a tough test for us.”
