Stewart and Akinfenwa looking to bounce back at Portsmouth

9 September 2016

Anthony Stewart and Adebayo Akinfenwa are hoping to bounce back as Wycombe make the trip to Portsmouth tomorrow.

The Chairboys lost 4-1 at Luton last weekend, and the pair are itching to make amends and get back on track at Fratton Park.

Anthony said: “We've been working hard throughout the week and hopefully we can put it right tomorrow.

“It is a big game and they will be expected to do everything. We aren’t expected to do much so we can just go there and play our game and hopefully the result will be there at the end.

“Conceding four is never good whatever level you play at, and it has made us more determined to put things right this week.

“We haven’t got anything to lose so we will go there, express ourselves and play our game and the result will take care of itself."

Bayo came on as a sub at Kenilworth Road last week, and he led the charge as Wanderers tried to come back into the game after Matt Bloomfield scored to make it 2-1.

He feels that the game ran away from Wycombe, but said the side is still a work in progress as they prepare for the trip to the south coast.

He said: “We were disappointed with last week’s result. I think 4-1 flattered Luton a little bit even though they are very strong. We have been on the training ground and working hard and it is a work in progress.

“But we have got to take positives. It’s a long season; we haven’t started the way we wanted in terms of points. The performances have been alright so we are a work in progress. Rome wasn’t built in a day and we are working tirelessly to put things right, starting with Portsmouth on Saturday.

“We are looking forward to Portsmouth; it’s a great stadium, big club and massive crowd and these are the games we relish.

“We want the fans to know that we are working hard and it will be really nice to go there and get a result. We will leave everything out on the pitch and hopefully we can come away with something.”
