Ainsworth: Notts County is another crucial game

24 March 2017

Ahead of the Notts County game, Gareth Ainsworth has issued a rallying cry as the Chairboys chase down a play-off spot.

The Wycombe manager has urged for all involved with the club to give everything between now and the end of the season with eight games remaining in the 2016/17 campaign.

Wanderers sit in 10th position, three places and three points outside the top-seven after going five matches undefeated in Sky Bet League Two.

With sights now firmly set on achieving a place in the end of season lottery, Ainsworth is ready to turn the key and give everything to get that golden ticket.

"Now we have eight games to go where I want to say to every one, fans included, to give your best now and see what we can achieve," he said.

"I don't want anyone to feel pressured but I now just want to get the absolute best and squeeze the absolute maximum out of every single player, fan and every single staff member I've got, just to see where we can end up.

"If we can get closer to these play-offs the anticpation and the optimism of every one around Wycombe might just get us through the door and over the line.

"I would hate to look back at the season and say we never gave it everything, so we're all just trying to get that little bit of momentum and that little bit extra out of every one."

Standing in their way this weekend are Notts County, a side that have experienced an upturn in form since the arrival of manager Kevin Nolan in January.

With the Magpies looking to secure their status in Sky Bet League Two for next season, the Wycombe boss is expecting a tough test for his players in another important game for the Chairboys.

"Kevin Nolan has injected spirit and desire into the club, and the owner is very passionate about the club; he has a vision and they are in good hands with him," Ainsworth added.

"We have a good chance to impose ourselves at home on Notts County, but they will be scrapping.

"With Newport picking up a point in midweek it makes sure it is definitely not dead and buried at the bottom so we will be wary of Notts County coming to us.

"It will be a totally different Notts County to the one we faced in December, but I'm hoping we are a different Wycombe than what it has been just after Christmas.

"So we're looking forward to the game, we know what it means and I truly believe this is another crucial game for us."

A number of special activities are lined up for this Saturday's game at Adams Park, and to mark the occasion, each season ticket holder will be able to purchase up to four guest tickets at £5 per person in any area of the ground, helping to generate a bumper crowd and an electric atmosphere.
