“We need to bring that forward on Saturday and if we can get a positive result against Morecambe, we can then look forward to the derby against Oxford.”

“But without hard work and battling, you aren’t going to achieve anything in the position we are in.

He said: “It’s very tight and we’ve still got a game or two in hand on teams. We’ve hit a sticky spell, we’re not going to deny that, but we have the belief in ourselves to move up the table and we need to show that.

A success by the seaside would see the Chairboys move to within just six points of the Shrimps, who currently occupy ninth place in SkyBet League 2.

He said: “We get on the bus, have a quiz and we’re all in it together. We get up there and adopt a siege mentality.”

Wanderers’ current longest-serving player isn’t daunted by the 560-mile round trip, instead highlighting the chance to boost team spirit ahead of the clash at the Globe Arena.

He added: “We all want to put on a performance for the supporters who travel up there, and for Gaz as well because we owe him one.”

“I’m really hopeful that I’ll be back in the team this weekend. I don’t mind where I play, I just want to be out there helping the lads.”

“I’m very eager to play,” he told Chairboys Player. “I was disappointed not to play last week, I hate missing out on any game.

The 29-year-old, who impressed in the 4-1 win at Northampton Town before Christmas, was an unused substitute in the 3-0 reverse at the hands of AFC Wimbledon last weekend.
