Ainsworth looking to continue away form at U's

Blues boss previews Colchester United.

22 September 2017

Gareth Ainsworth says his team will look to put behind the late defeat to Luton last time out, with a win at Colchester United this weekend.

The Chairboys travel to the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday looking to extend their unbeaten run on the road, which runs as far back as February.

It was actually a midweek trip Colchester United which last saw Wanderers lose away in a 1-0 defeat. Ainsworth, previewing the game, is hoping there will be no repeat of that come the final whistle this time around.

"After the game against Luton there was a lot of disappointment and anger, but plenty of energy," he said.

"I said to the boys that this energy is fantastic and to use it in a positive way to make sure we don't feel like this again this season.

"You always learn more from defeat, the performance was good but the result is ultimately what matters in football and we want to put it right this weekend.

"We're on a good run away from home, we're up against Colchester which is the 'fans derby' from the non-league days and it will be great to get back on track there.

"For us it is another League Two team who we need to pick up points against, and we haven't lost away from home since our last visit to Colchester in February, so to continue that run is something I'd love to do.

"It will be a tough game, John McGreal has got his team very organised and obviously we saw that last year when they defeated us twice when we failed to take our chances.

"We need to make sure we get everything right for this game, I've got a good strong squad with goals in it and I'm hoping we can bring some points back."
