Ainsworth keeps faith with squad policy

3 February 2015

Gareth Ainsworth says he is more than happy with the quality within his squad as he prepares for the final three months of the season.

The transfer window closed last night with no players moving into or out of Adams Park, despite speculation that goalkeeper Matt Ingram in particular might be destined for a move to a club at a higher level.

Ainsworth said: "We never had any intentions of selling Matt. He's a hugely important member of the squad and he's committed to the long-term plan which we have to stabilise and then grow the club.

"Having a small squad this season has benefitted us in many ways and when we've needed reinforcements, we've been able to bring in some excellent players through the loan market.

"This policy has worked for us so far and I'm confident that we can continue to perform to a high standard and pick up consistent results by doing things the same way.

"The club isn't ready to throw lots of money at bringing in new players midway through a season - that doesn’t mean we lack ambition or aren't hungry to succeed, but we have to be sensible to make sure the club can continue to survive.

"We've pretty much reached the points total we first set out to reach which should ensure our safety in the division. Now the challenge to the players is to go out there and see what they can achieve by sticking to their tasks and continuing to work hard for each other."
