Gaz: We stuck to our game plan

12 February 2014

Gareth Ainsworth says his side did exactly what he asked of them during last night’s 1-1 draw with promotion-chasing Fleetwood Town.

A change of formation saw Wanderers enjoy plenty of possession against their high-flying opponents, and Ainsworth was pleased by the way the Chairboys adapted to their new shape.

“The glass is half full again for me,” he said. “I thought the performance was there.

“We played fantastically first half, we really did. Max Kretzschmar's shot from range in the first 10 seconds set the tone. Max was excellent but so was everyone.

“The formation we played saw us pick up a lot of ball in midfield. The boys watched the DVD of Fleetwood against Scunthorpe to suss out their strengths and they took everything on board - I thought we could have won the game.

“The lads are down but not disappointed. They are deflated like they should have won the game, they feel like they did enough to win the game and they did. I keep saying keep doing that and it will turn, we will win games.

“People were telling me to stick two or three forwards on the pitch and go and win the game, but it doesn't work like that. If you lose the game, you get slaughtered for that.

“What we did tonight was a professional point that potentially could have been three.

“We didn't seem to create too many chances on Saturday, whereas tonight we created more. We limited a team who are sixth in the league with a large budget and some good players.”
