Gareth: Chairboys up for Notts County

Blues boss previews the visit of the Magpies to Adams Park.

18 August 2017

Gareth Ainsworth is hoping his side can register their first home win of 17/18 and continue their unbeaten start to the league campaign vs Notts County.

Kevin Nolan brings his Magpies to Adams Park having never lost as a manager vs Wanderers; coming away with three points with both Leyton Orient in January 2016 and County in March 2017.

With much quality in Notts' ranks, Ainsworth is expecting another tough game for his side, but is confident the Chairboys will be well-equipped for the challenge as they aim to extend their fine form which has seen them lose just two of their last 15 league games.

"Notts County have got some real quality in their squad, and with Stead and Ameobi up front they bring with them Premier League experience which will be a big test," he said.

"But we've got more maturity in our back-four this season than we have had in years gone by and I think that will count for something.

"They have also got some young talent; Jorge Grant is a very talented player, and he has scored three times already this season so he will be on the watch list and we need to keep those types of players quiet and we do well on that side of things.

"Whether he starts or not is up to Kevin Nolan, and he (Nolan) comes here with a good record having come down here twice with two different teams and beaten us both times.

"So we need to put that record to bed and get a result that is positive for Wycombe on Saturday, and I'm sure they'll be a good atmosphere as Notts County always travel well and my boys will be well up for it, as they always are."
