Skipper: We will fight for every point

Adam El-Abd looks ahead to the Easter schedule.

27 March 2018

Adam El-Abd says he and the team head to Notts County full of confidence as they prepare to go head-to-head with one of their promotion rivals.

Seven points in seven days for the Chairboys last week has them heading into the Good Friday fixture four points and one place ahead of their opponents; who will be looking to bounce back from their defeat at Chesterfield last time out.

With two games in four days on the horizon, the Wanderers captain says he and the team will be giving everything they've got to try and get the results they need whilst keeping the mantra of taking it one game at a time with them.

Reflecting on recent results and looking ahead to the Easter schedule, El-Abd said: "I think if someone gave us the deal of seven points from three games in a week I think we would have taken it, so we will take the positives from that and move on to the weekend.

"Notts County away then Grimsby home present a huge easter weekend for us; our away form has been very good at the minute so we are approaching that Notts County game on Good Friday full of confidence."

"There is seven games still left to play which is a lot of football, and we will fight for every single point we can get and hopefully come the 5th May it is enough.

"Notts County is our biggest game of the season, but only because it is the next one, we are not under pressure to win, but having said that we are going up there looking to win."

El-Abd at the heart backline has helped the team register two clean sheets in their last three games and put in a Man of the Match display against Port Vale last weekend.

When asked about recent defensive displays, El-Abd feels the back five are starting to find form just at the right time.

"If we keep clean sheets we give ourselves a great chance to win games and to pick up another one was a positive.

"In recent weeks I think we have been doing alright, we have been limiting the opposition to few opportunities.

"We were unlucky at Crawley to concede two, Cambridge we certainly were as they were limited to very few chances and we've picked up clean sheets against Barnet and Cheltenham as well.

"So the solidity is coming, so if we can keep up what we're doing the clean sheets will continue to come."
