JJ: Points over performances now

31 March 2017

Joe Jacobson is hoping the Chairboys can cut the gap between themselves and the play-offs at Leyton Orient this weekend.

The season is at its business end, and it's reaching fever pitch for all those in promotion contention in Sky Bet League Two.

Wycombe go into the trip at Orient four points off the play-offs, with seven games left and 21 priceless points to play for in the 2016/17 campaign.

Looking to bounce back from the defeat to Notts County last time out, Jacobson says the players are looking forward to the challenge ahead, where wins are what matters now.

"It has come down to the crunch end of the season now where it's not really about performances, it's about wins and getting points on the board," the full-back said.

"We know that if we want to have a decent chance at getting in the play-offs, we have to win as many games as possible and that starts Saturday.

"Last weekend was disappointing, but we've had a great week's training and hopefully we'll have a few boys back involved after injury.

"Everyone is bouncing at the minute, we know that five or six wins in these last seven games could see us have a right good end to the season and that's exciting."

Manager Gareth Ainsworth spoke of the need for unity in Wanderers' play-off push as the Chairboys faithful prepare to roar on the boys at Leyton Orient tomorrow.

JJ, who remembers the last trip to east London to be one of the best away atmospheres he's played in, is hoping the fans can play their part in the season run-in.

"The fans' support will be huge," Jacobson added.

"When you come into a game and the fans are right behind you, it gives you a massive lift.

"I think it was last season, when we went away to Orient, it was one of the best atmospheres of an away side that I've ever been involved in.

"So if we can take another big following down there, the fans know that they can help us get a victory which would be huge for us, and with other teams playing each other, hopefully we can push up a few places and get in and around the play-offs."
