Wood: We've come a long way

24 September 2013

Sam Wood says being disappointed at not securing a fifth successive victory shows just how far the Blues have come under Gareth Ainsworth’s stewardship.

Wanderers went into Saturday’s clash with York City on the back of four straight wins in all competitions, but had to come from behind to secure a point thanks to Dean Morgan’s fifth goal in four games. 
“If you look at where we were last year, we were down the bottom and now we’re still in the top six - it’s been fantastic,
” said Wood.
“We’re disappointed but we’ve still got the buzz, the music was still on and we’ll go and have a look at the video and sort things out.
“Spirits are high still, but it was just a bit disappointing that we didn’t get the three points for the fans.”
Wood added: “We knew it was going to be a hard game.  They’re down the bottom but that doesn’t mean anything.
“Unfortunately we conceded first, if we had scored first then I think we would have won the game. They’ve got the goal, but we’ve done well to react and score near enough straight after.
“When we’re away from home teams come at us and that’s when we’re good at attacking, as we soak it up and then go ‘bang’ and catch teams out.
“They’ve come here and they’ve soaked it up. We couldn’t break them down and that’s maybe something we have to work on.”
Wanderers are on their travels again on Saturday when they make the trip to Rochdale and Wood says confidence is still high within the camp as the Chairboys look to stretch their unbeaten run to seven games.
He said: “As long as we don’t lose we’re still picking up points.
“We’re good away from home and Gaz said that maybe last year we might think 'are we maybe going to lose against Rochdale', but no we’re going up there to get the three points.
“We don’t fear anyone and we’re looking forward to it. We’ll work on a few things in training, but we’re going up there for the win on Saturday.”
