Hayes delighted to be back for the run-in

27 March 2017

Team captain Paul Hayes is hoping to play his part between now and the end of the season as the Chairboys hunt down a play-off spot.

The striker came on as a substitute with just over twenty minutes remaining in the 1-0 defeat to Notts County at Adams Park last Saturday, which was his first appearance for Wycombe since early February after being sidelined through injury.

Although it was a not the winning return Hayes had hoped for, the front man is pleased to be back and is aiming to help steer the ship towards the top seven, starting next Saturday at Leyton Orient.

"Personally it felt great to be back on the pitch," he said speaking after the Notts fixture.

"It's been a long time not being out there so it has been extremely frustrating for myself as two months out is hard, mentally and physically.

"Obviously I'm disappointed about the result and I'm going to have a bad weekend thinking about that, but for myself to back out there and not feel anything was fantastic.

"Today wasn't good enough, and we've had a few performances like that in the past and we just need a reaction.

"We've got a few young lads in there who are having their first season in a situation like this, so it will be challenging for them and testing.

"So all the players will hopefully help the younger lads through this, but we all need to stick together.

"That is our first loss in six games, so we just have to bounce back and make sure we do it right."
