Gareth looking to reward fans with a win

Blues boss previews Burton Albion.

5 October 2018

Gareth Ainsworth is hoping to back up Tuesday’s draw at Fleetwood Town with all three points this Saturday when the Chairboys welcome Burton Albion to Adams Park.

Wanderers will attempt to get their first home league win of the season against a Brewers side that have yet to taste victory on the road after relegation to Sky Bet League One.

So with both teams looking for a change in fortunes, the boss, speaking to the press on Thursday morning, says it has all the makings for a classic.

“I would be great to back up a good point at Fleetwood with our first home of the season on Saturday and that is what we are setting out to do," he said.

“That being said, our home form is something that we’re not particularly worried about as the performances have largely been there, we just need to keep going, remain strong and we will start converting that into results.

“Burton are a tough outfit to face who had been a Championship side for the previous two seasons and Nigel Clough is a man that I have got huge respect for and I know he will be well up for this one.

“They haven’t won away from home in the league this season, so he (Clough) will be looking to change that in this one and I’m looking for a win at home which should make for a great contest.”

Wycombe were backed in Fleetwood by 112 noisy Chairboys fans on Tuesday night, many of those making over a 500-mile roundtrip to follow their team.

Ainsworth says he has nothing but admiration for the support his team has been shown so far this season and hopes to reward that with a win this weekend.

“I want to win to reward our fantastic supporters because they have brilliant for us so far this season," he added.

“Standing in the dug-out on Tuesday night, all I could hear was the Wycombe fans who had a made a long journey to support their team and would not have got back home until the early hours of the morning with work to go to the next day which is something I have huge respect for.

“We want to deliver a result for our fans and we will do our best to try and make that happen. The wins will come, keep with us and thanks for all your support."
