Thompson: Home support will drive us on vs Mansfield

11 April 2017

Fresh from his brace at the weekend, Garry Thompson is hoping a positive easter weekend will see the Chairboys right in the play-off mix.

The midfielder, who is close to achieving his 700th career appearance, showed in his performance against Cheltenham Town exactly why he is such a key figure in Gareth Ainsworth’s squad ahead of the run-in.

Looking ahead to the Good Friday clash with Mansfield Town at Adams Park, Thompson says the players are going into the game in good spirits with it all to play for.

"Mansfield was always going to be a big game as they are in and around us," he said.

"With two games in four days, if we can come out the back of them with some positive results hopefully we'll be back in there.

“We wanted to win against Cheltenham, we’re not going to lie, we wanted to win that game and we're disappointed not to win, but we remain unbeaten and we go into Mansfield full of confidence."

Friday's game against a fellow play-off rival has all the ingredients for a classic, and Thompson is hoping the fans can create a carnival like atmosphere to help the team register those all important points.

"Having the home support on our side is what drives us on," he stated.

“When you hear the fans roar you on, it's the best place to play, so having the support with us gives us a massive advantage.

"If they can come down and cheer us on it will hopefully get us over the line – because that is what we need.”
