Gaz: Learn from first fixture

19 March 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says revenge is not at the forefront of his mind ahead of the Blues’ trip to Bradford City tonight (Tuesday).


The Bantams were deserving 3-0 winners at Adams Park last month and Ainsworth wants to see that his side have learnt from that defeat.

“I don’t think we owe them one,” Ainsworth told Chairboys Player. “It was the first time in my reign, bar maybe the Cheltenham game, where we looked physically outdone and a little bit inexperienced at times.

“They were all firing and I remember Phil Parkinson made a lot of changes that day because they had the final coming up and a few players were putting their case forward to play in it.

“Hopefully we learnt from that and if you make a mistake you learn from it. If it happens twice then it becomes a problem.

“We need to go up there and give a good account of ourselves, battle and hopefully come away with something.

“I know he’s (Parkinson) shuffled his team around, but they suffered a defeat on Saturday so there could be even more changes. We’ll be strong and we’ll be firing on all cylinders.”

Wanderers have a good record in midweek away games this season, having won their last three league matches under the floodlights.

Ainsworth added: “Hopefully that can continue and the Bradford people will be out in their droves supporting their team. They’ve had a great season with the cups and they’re still striving to get into the play-offs.

“When that first whistle goes we’ll be at it and hopefully we can come away with the points.”
