Gareth pleased by Solihull showing

Blues boss reflects on cup victory.

6 November 2017

Gareth Ainsworth was delighted to be in Monday's second round draw of the Emirates FA Cup, after overcoming Solihull Moors by two goals to nil.

It is the fifth year running that the Chairboys have reached the second round of the competition, and they will find out their next opponents in Monday night's draw at 7pm on BBC Two and BT Sport - as ball number 35.

Reflecting on yesterday's win, the manager felt it was a case of 'job done' with a professional display, which they will look to build on as they return to league action this weekend at Morecambe.

"To get in the hat for Monday is all I wanted from the boys, he said."

"I told them before the game that if they want the moments like they had in the hotel last year, when our ball came out against Tottenham and everyone went crazy -  then this is the start of that.

"So the aim was to be in the hat, no matter what, and we did it with a really professional job.

"It wasn't a great game, Solihull lined up very deep and tried to defend, but we got two goals with the wind, and then against the wind we probably could have had a couple more.

"All in all, it was a very pleasing performance and I'm looking forward to Monday's draw.

"The fans were great today and came in good numbers which helped us as believe me, it is not easy against non-league sides.

"There has been some funny results in the cup this weekend, so I'm pleased we're not one of them, pleased we're in the hat and we move on to Morecambe now."
