Gareth looking for an excellent Easter

12 April 2017

Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth says the players are ready and prepared for the Good Friday clash vs Mansfield Town at Adams Park.

The game sees two play-off contenders go head-to-head, as the clocks ticks down on the 2016/17 campaign. The Chairboys go into the match three points off the top seven, whilst the Stags are four away.

With both teams looking for maximum points, Ainsworth is looking forward to the test Steve Evans' men will bring.

"The preparation has been the same as ever," the boss said on Wednesday morning. "We'll work hard on what's coming because Mansfield are in a very similar situation to us as they want to reach these play-offs as well.

"They are big club with a big budget, with Steve Evans they have some real ambition, and I think we'll be pressed hard on Friday.

"They go forward quickly as they have got willing runners up front, so we will be prepare for that in training over the next two days.

"It will be an interesting Easter weekend, but I know there is enough at Wycombe Wanderers to win both our games, and that's what we're going out to do."

With so many memorable moments in the campaign already it's still all to play for in Wanderers' season, and Gareth is hoping there will be right up until the last kick, which will hopefully see his side reach the play-offs.

"We've had a great season with two great cup runs against Tottenham and the Chackatrade semi-final, and we don't want to lose sight of that, but we also know that this season we wanted to be competing for the play-offs and hopefully we can keep competing right until the end and get in there," he added.

"To reach the play-offs would be a really good achievement; expectation levels are always good here, the fans want success and they are disappointed when they don't get it, but the good thing about Wycombe is that they all know where we are as a club.

"We've really come a long way in three years, and to be in this position is great, so lets see where we end up."
