Gaz: ‘We’re creating something special’

16 September 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says the attitude and strength of his squad are key reasons behind the Wanderers’ fine run of form.

Saturday’s 3-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle made it four successive wins for the Chairboys and lifted them up to fifth in the Sky Bet League 2 table.

“We’re creating something really special here,” Ainsworth said. “Every member of the squad was up for it and they were all together.

“The subs were magnificent, they were hugging everyone and high-fiving them, and those were the ones that didn’t get on.

“When you look at the bench and you’ve got Kuffour, Dunne, Stewart, Arnold, Bloomfield and McClure you’re thinking you’ve got something good and we have!

“It took all of us to win the game, but I thought it was a very convincing away performance and one of the best away performances under me so far.

“We scored some fantastic goals which were a real bonus and it was pleasing all-round.”

Blues’ defence laid the foundations for the deserved win at Home Park and Ainsworth was quick to highlight the back five and the balance of his side.

He added: “Doherty and Johnson seem to be forging this partnership of resilience and that’s great.

“Marvin’s becoming such a better player and Kortney can’t lose his place at left-back. He’s holding it and Charles Dunne doesn’t know what to do, he keeps putting his arm around me and saying ‘when am I getting my place back!’

“The back four were as resilient as anything and the other lads have gone on and won it for the back five. Matt Ingram took some awesome crosses and was called upon once for a fantastic save.

“Balance is exactly the right word because we have it throughout this team. The units were fantastic and I’m really really pleased with the first half against the wind which I thought we had the better of.

“I think we were too much for them in the second half and it was a great sight to see Billy’s goal drop in to make it 3-0 - that just capped off a fantastic day for us.”
