Ainsworth: Fans kept the faith

1 October 2013

Gareth Ainsworth has praised the travelling Wanderers support for backing the team throughout Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Rochdale.

The Chairboys got off to a nightmare start at Spotland, finding themselves 3-0 down after just 16 minutes, but despite this the 240 Blues fans who made the 394-mile round trip from Adams Park remained in good voice and were rewarded with a spirited fightback.

“The fans were brilliant,” Ainsworth said. “They weren’t too happy after 16 minutes just like myself, but they knew with the spirit we have we’d grow into it.

“Having said that we can’t let three goals in away from home and think we’re going to win the game, that’s not going to happen and I’ll be making sure we pick the bones from it, and we become better and stronger from it.

“We might concede one or two away, but conceding three really put us out of the game and it was an absolute mountain to climb, and we almost climbed it but we just fell short.”

Ainsworth was also full of praise for keeper Matt Ingram who put in another assured display.

He said: “Second half when we were pushing forward and the gaps were appearing he kept us in it. Obviously he’s disappointed letting three in, but he did really well.

“I don’t know how he would have saved two of the goals - they were well out of his reach. He’s an outstanding prospect and he’s going to be a top, top keeper.”
