Ainsworth's on the attack

18 October 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says his side will continue to take the game to their opponents when they visit Bristol Rovers on Saturday (k.o 3pm).

Blues travel to the Memorial Stadium in search of a third successive victory and have been in fine attacking form recently, scoring an average of two goals per game for the last 10 matches.

“The way we’re attacking and creating chances at the moment is very inspiring,” Ainsworth told Chairboys Player.

“We obviously need to shore up at the back and not concede, but at every team if they don’t concede and score plenty of goals then there is only one outcome.

“We’ll be going to Bristol with a strong squad and the same ethos of ‘get at them and stamp our game on them’, and hopefully get the result.”

Rovers have struggled so far this season and lie in 20th place, but John Ward’s side have been tough opposition at the Memorial Stadium, losing just one of their five Sky Bet League 2 games on home turf.

Ainsworth added: “It’s a big city and they have two big teams. Bristol Rovers have a big history and they are eight or 9,000-strong at times and loud!

“It’s an old-fashioned stadium and quite hostile with the tunnel where the fans are on top of you. They do play a part, but the way the Wycombe fans have been at home this season, you would have thought there have been 8,000 here.

“The singing, the cheering and the feeling you get between the players and the fans has been fantastic this year and hopefully we’ll see a few there to quieten the Pirates’ fans.”
