Gareth looking to sign off special season with a win

Boss previews Stevenage.

3 May 2018

Gareth Ainsworth is looking forward to a carnival atmosphere at a packed Adams Park this weekend but insists his team are fully focused on trying to sign off with a win against Stevenage.

The promoted Wanderers welcome Boro for their final game of the season after sealing their place in Sky Bet League One last weekend with a win at Chesterfield.

Reflecting on a momentous week, the boss says he is still in pinching himself.

“It’s still not properly sunk in yet, but I’m sure Saturday’s game will go a long way in doing that as it promises to be a great occasion,” he said.

“It has been a phenomenal week; that game at Chesterfield was without doubt the best moment of my managerial career.

“To achieve what we set out to do at the start of the season which is get promoted, and do it automatically with a game to spare is just brilliant.

“The boys and the fans at Chesterfield were superb and it was just an amazing day. I had a slight inkling results would go our way for some reason, and it did which resulted in a real special moment for everyone involved.

“Now we have a chance to celebrate on Saturday as a town with one final home game and I am so very proud to say that next season Wycombe Wanderers will be in League One.”

Saturday’s game will be a real party atmosphere with a bumper crowd expected and a presentation after full-time.

But the gaffer says that his biggest priority at this moment in time is signing off with a win which would equal Wanderers best ever points total in the EFL of 84.

“We want to take this game on Saturday seriously,” he urged.

“We’re in as squad today preparing on Stevenage and want to try and put on a good show because I know there will be a good show from the fans that have been right by us through a crazy few years and now we want to make it a winning end to a fantastic season.

“As a manager I always want to win, I want to beat Stevenage and that is important to me as we could equal our best ever tally of points in the EFL.

“We’ve been breaking a few more records this season which has been great but ultimately I would love to finish on a win and send everyone home happy before we prepare for League One next year.”
