Gareth looking to stretch home record vs in-form Spireites

Blues boss previews Chesterfield.

15 December 2017

Gareth Ainsworth is wary of the tough test an in-form Chesterfield will bring to Adams Park on Saturday as the Chairboys look to make it nine unbeaten at home.

The Spireites come to the home of Wanderers unbeaten in their last six league games as the revival under new manager Jack Lester continues to flourish, and with Wycombe with a 100% record in their last four games at home, it has all the ingredients for a Christmas cracker.

Gareth, speaking to the press ahead of Chesterfield said : “People look at stats going into games, and going into this one you would say that Chesterfield are one of the teams topping the form table, so on that basis we will be in for a tough game.

“Those who don’t look at the stats will see us in fifth position and Chesterfield in 21st after 21 games and assume it is an easy game, which of course is absolute rubbish.

“They are a good team and in Jack Lester they have got a good manager. He has earned his stars at Nottingham Forest with the U23s and he’s come in and I’ve been impressed with what he has done so far in league football.

“He has played at this level which helps as he knows the division, knows the players and knows what to do. His team are organised and they’ll be fired up for this one.

“I’ve played against Jack and he is a person I have a lot of respect for, and now I am looking forward to coming up against him as a manager.

“So it will be a tough game against Chesterfield but I am hoping that we can replicate the form we have shown at home lately; it is about keeping our standards high, our performance levels up there and getting bit of luck as well.

“The fans have been great this season, they really have, and with it being the last home game before Christmas we want to go out and give our fans the win and hopefully with another positive result at Coventry they can sit and enjoy Christmas with us in a decent position in the table.”
