Gareth: We'll be ready to go vs Grimsby

Blues boss previews the trip to Blundell Park.

25 August 2017

Gareth Ainsworth is hoping his team can perform to their full potential and come away from Grismby Town with a priceless three points on the road.

Wycombe go into the game looking to bounce back from a 4-2 home defeat at the hands of Notts County last time out, which was just their third defeat in their last 16 league games.

The Chairboys have fond memories of their last visit to Blundell Park where they came from behind to claim a 2-1 victory thanks to a Danny Collins own-goal and a stunning strike from Paris Cowan-Hall.

Gareth, previewing the match, is hoping for more of the same from his troops on Saturday.

"It was a great performance on our last trip to Grimsby," he said.

"Paris is a match-winner on his day which you saw on that day and earlier this season against Port Vale, and hopefully he will be fit for the trip this time around.

"We want to go at Grimsby as they are a team that are similar to ourselves as a team who compete as hard as they can with what they've got.

"There are some real big teams in this league and it is the teams around us and that are similar to us that we really need to pick points off and I think Grimsby comes into that category.

"I'm expecting a tough game; Russell Slade's teams are always very organised and he is a very experienced manager, but I know what I've got on our day when everyone is performing and firing on all cylinders.

"So we'll go up there confident as always, with an overnight trip which is one of our few this season which willl build the team spirit and we'll be ready to go at 3pm Saturday."
