The Big Match Preview - York City

29 August 2014

Gareth Ainsworth's side face a York City outfit with four draws from four games at Bootham Crescent on Saturday.

Wanderers lost 2-0 on their visit last season and Ainsworth is keen to avoid a repeat, knowing that his players are capable of springing a surprise after collecting three victories from their opening four matches.

"We always seem to do okay when we go on long away trips so hopefully we can carry that on," he told Chairboys Player. "We owe York one - they gave us a good battering in the first half of that game but hopefully we can show what we've become. We're a better team but they haven't been beaten yet and they've been scoring goals.

"We will be underdogs because they were in the play-offs last year but I don't mind that. The group that we're building will rise to the challenge and it'll be a good test for us. It'll be a nice scalp for us if we can get the win but if we bring anything back it'll be a bonus."

Gary Doherty remains sidelined with his knee injury and Ainsworth indicated that the game may have come too soon for midfielder Josh Scowen.
