Gaz: Youth can conquer experience

25 October 2013

Gareth Ainsworth believes his young guns can get the better of their more senior opponents on Saturday.

“People see what we’re doing here – there’s the passion and drive which is what I spoke about when I first took over, but now I’ve got this extra quality to talk about. It’s awe-inspiring and I just want to keep going.”

“Consistency is key, as are our energy levels. The way we’re breaking teams down at the minute is great to see and I’m pleased to be a part of it.

He added: “It’s a brilliant place to be and I just want to keep this consistent high-performance going. We know we won’t win every game, that’s football, but over the season you’ll get what you deserve.

“I’m confident we can beat anybody, I believe we can beat anybody, that’s not being arrogant. Bury is a team I feel we can take the points from if we play well and things go to plan.”

“Hopefully we can continue this run, but don’t underestimate Bury. They’ve got some experienced players in their squad so it really is youth v experience and we’ll see what happens.

“As always, we’ll have to be at our best and bring our a-game,” he told Chairboys Player.

The average age of the Wanderers starting XI from Tuesday’s abandoned game at Portsmouth was under 22 and a half, and Ainsworth hopes his talented youngsters can continue their three-game winning streak when Bury visit Adams Park.
The 40-year-old will be pitting his witts against a familiar face after Ronnie Jepson was appointed the Shakers’ caretaker manager following Kevin Blackwell’s dismissal.

He said: “Ronnie’s an ex-team-mate of mine. He was the centre-forward when I made my debut in 1991 for Preston North End. He was a big guy and he looked after me – I’ll never forget that.
