Gareth looking to bounce back at Home Park

Blues boss previews the Pilgrims.

21 August 2018

Gareth Ainsworth is hoping his side can bounce back quickly from the weekend’s defeat to Bristol Rovers as he prepares to take the Chairboys to Home Park to face Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night.

Wanderers head to Devon in search of their first win of the season and will look to build on the late fightback they showed against Rovers last time out, where a 82nd minute goal from Scott Kashket gave the team a lift to go on and take the game to their opponents and very nearly snatch a point.

Now looking ahead to Argyle, Ainsworth is hoping to carry on their fine form at Home Park, which has seen Wycombe go undefeated at the home of the Pilgrims throughout his near six-year reign in the hotseat.

However, the Blues boss warns that the Chairboys will have to be at their best to carry on that record on Tuesday evening.

“It is not going to be easy; Home Park is a tough place to go.

“Plymouth had a very similar start to us last year where I think they were near the bottom for the first half of the season. Derek Adams then strengthened hugely in January with a big turnaround in players and they almost made the play-offs so they offer a totally different proposition than what they did in League 2 two years ago.

“I’m sure that the boys will be up for it and will be ready to go, we’ve been working hard to study them and their strengths and what we can do to try and break them down but we have got to stay resolute at the other end.

“We must stop leaking goals and that is going to be big for me to work on, but we win and lose as a team and we always will, and it is my job now to pick the team up, get them ready for Tuesday night and go give Plymouth a good game.”
