Gareth: We're looking forward to pitting our wits against Luton

Boss previews the visit of Luton this weekend.

15 September 2017

Gareth Ainsworth says he is relishing the challenge that Luton Town will bring to Adams Park this weekend.

The Chairboys come up against the Hatters after two battling draws on the road, and look to make it back-to-back home victories after the 3-1 victory over Forest Green.

Wanderers have started the season well with just one defeat in their opening seven games, and the manager is happy with what he has seen from his squad so far.

With a good crowd expected from all areas of the ground, Gareth says his team will be giving everything to come out on top against a Luton side widely tipped for success this season.

"I'm really looking forward to pitting our wits against a team which are probably the league favourites in Luton Town," he said.

"Nathan (Jones) has been backed by the club, and they have made no secret that they want to get promoted this season.

"They are a fantastically supported club with good history and they are a big club in League Two, so we will be up against it and anyone that finishes above Luton this season I am sure will be getting promoted.

"Let's give it all we've got, fans and players alike, and see where we are. I see something different about our squad this year; I see more resilience and more depth definitely.

"I think my best eleven is as good as anyone in this league and we'll be ready to go again this Saturday."

Wycombe go into the game boosted with the news that Adebayo Akinfenwa, Nathan Tyson and Sam Saunders should be back in contention.

With players in form in various areas of the pitch, the gaffer admits he has a selection headache, albeit a nice one.

"I've got big headaches for selection now but that is the only way you want it as a manager.

"The team doesn't pick itself, I've got to pick a team which I think gives us the best possible chance of winning the game on the day.

"Alongside the players that have played in the last two games, I've think we've got Tyson, Bayo and Sam Saunders all back in contention which is fantastic.

"I'm really looking forward to having an almost full squad back with the excpetion of Scott Kashket, with some tasty games coming up too."
