d to it.” “I’ll be doing everything I possibly can to get these players ready for a big game on Saturday and I’m looking forwar

“The last few years at home against Oxford haven’t been that great, but it’s time to put that right and give our fans something to cheer about.

He added: “It is more than a derby game, it’s an opportunity to get us back to winning ways, move away from the bottom and get rid of this jinx at home. Oxford are unbeaten away from home since April so it would be nice to spoil that record.

Meanwhile, the Chairboys' chief has called on his players to give the Adams Park faithful something to cheer about as they aim to end an inconsistent run at home.

“It’s also going to be a special day and I want the players to recognise how special it is - they need to savour these days because they are few and far between. I want us to go out and get those three points - I believe we can beat Oxford on Saturday.”

“I think the lads have now set their own standards and the bar is very high for performance levels. That is what we are looking for on Saturday against Oxford, it’s going to be a big game with it being a local derby.

“The point was good, but the performance was better for me,” said Ainsworth. “To the fans that were there, thank you very much for your support. You were fantastic and hopefully you would have seen how well we played.

Ainsworth is determined to put an end to Oxford’s record and is full of optimism that his side can take all three points on Saturday following a spirited performance against Morecambe last time out.

The U’s have been in superb form on their travels in Sky Bet League 2 this term, winning six and drawing four of their 10 away outings.
