Gareth: The boys will pick themselves up quickly

2 December 2015

Gareth Ainsworth says he has faith in his side to bounce back from Tuesday's loss to Bristol Rovers when they head to Millwall.

Wycombe's six-match unbeaten run came to a grinding halt with a 3-0 defeat at Bristol Rovers, but Ainsworth remained upbeat despite an uncharacteristic second-half collapse.

"We collapsed in the last 30 minutes and that's not like us at all," he told Chairboys PlayerHD. "It was a very soft foul given for their first goal, but it's a great free-kick and the thing for me is we should have kept it at 1-0.

"The two goals after that were very sloppy and really avoidable and that has cost us. But I've not been too down on the boys; we've had a fantastic run, we've done really well and now we have a big game against Millwall on Saturday."

The Chairboys visit the League 1 side in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup (k.o. 3pm), and will aim to bounce back after a Matt Taylor hat-trick earned Rovers the three points at the Memorial Ground.

"We'll have a look at the video; it won't be nice viewing, but we'll be back again on Thursday," Ainsworth added. "I know these boys, they'll pick themselves up quickly and they won't carry this with them. We have a good tie against Millwall in the FA Cup with nothing to lose.

"It's a nice distraction without any pressure. We are going to go to The Den and give a good account of ourselves. We ran them close in the League Cup last year so there's no reason why we can't get through to the third round."
