Ainsworth sets point target

2 August 2015

Gareth Ainsworth has laid down a challenge to his players to hit his target of 61 points in the season ahead.

That benchmark was enough to attain a top-half finish in the 2014/15 campaign and Ainsworth believes reaching that total would mark a successful achievement for his small squad.

The Blues boss said: "Last year was all about survival and hitting 55 points. The boys did outstandingly well to reach that target early in February and from there we were able to reassess and set our sights on promotion.

"We can't get ahead of ourselves in the second year of a long-term plan and there's no expectations from myself or anyone at the club to do the same again.

"There's a lot of money in this league and a number of clubs have been able to strengthen in ways that we can't afford to. If we can get 61 points on the board in a tough division then I think it'll be a good year for us and if we reach that figure before the end of the season, we'll have a look to see what else we might be able to achieve."
