Boss looking to put an end to Gresty Road blues

Wycombe looking for first league win at the Alex since 1994.

18 January 2018

Gareth Ainsworth takes his Wanderers side to Crewe Alexandra this weekend looking to secure their first league win at the Alexandra Stadium since September 1994, whilst strengthening their grip on a top seven position in Sky Bet League Two.

The Chairboys come up against an Alex side that are in indifferent form of late, having won three and lost three of their last six games, with no consecutive wins or losses in that run.

After falling to defeat at Carlisle in their last outing, David Artell’s side will be hoping that run can continue this weekend as they nervously look over their shoulders in the battle to avoid the drop.

With that in mind, the Blues boss knows his team will have to be at their best to come away with the result they crave.

Previewing Saturday’s clash, Gareth said: “Crewe away has been a tricky place to go for us in recent years.

“We won a cup game up there in 2013, but in terms of our league form we want to put that right as we haven’t won there for a while.

“Chesterfield beating Luton last weekend shows that any team can beat anyone in this league and I’m sure that people can’t be naive enough to think that just because Crewe are down there and we are up there it automatically means that it is an away win – absolutely far from it, they are fighting for their lives and we know that.

“We will definitely need to be on our A game from Saturday right until the end of the season to pick up as many points as we can to get in those play-offs, and who knows maybe even better than that.

“At the moment though, Crewe is the only game in my mind and I’m sure that they are going to be a strong outfit at Gresty Road but we want to come away with a good result.”
