Stand up and be counted

15 April 2014

Gareth Ainsworth says his side must make the most of home advantage as he prepares for Good Friday’s crucial game against Northampton Town (k.o 3pm).

Wanderers go into the game ahead of the visitors on goal difference, but victory could see the Chairboys move level on points with 18th-placed Hartlepool United.

“We’ll be working hard on what we do at home, because at home we’ve been decent lately and that’s the advantage we’ve got,” he said.

“They’ve beaten Burton, which is a good scalp, so we’re going to have to be at it to get anything out of the game.

“It was always going to be a big game but now it’s huge. It’s the biggest game of my managerial career and I’m sure it’ll be the biggest game of some of the players’ careers.”

Ainsworth added: “If we lose against Northampton we’ll go into the relegation places and that’s a simple fact.

“We’ve got winnable games to come but we can’t rely on those now. We need to put our future in our own hands and I think we’ve got to win a couple of games before we can even consider being safe.

“It’s ‘stand up and be counted’ time and I’ll be looking at that in training this week.

“It’s disappointing especially after the great fans following we had at Rodney Parade; they made a lot of noise and they were great.

“We’ll have to put things right on the training pitch and the boys will be in for a working week, believe me.”
