Gareth: Team spirit will help us turn the corner

Boss feels the squad's togetherness will play a big part in the club's survival attempt in the Championship.

16 October 2020

Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth believes his side can start putting results on the board - starting with tomorrow's visit of Millwall to Adams Park - thanks to the culture that has been developed within the club over his eight years in charge.

The Blues have tasted defeat in all four of their first matches in the Championship but Ainsworth says that record hasn't dented morale in the camp as they return from an international break against the Lions on Saturday.

“We need to make the most of this spirit that we have,” he said. “This is a tough league, so our togetherness is very important – and that counts for everyone, players, staff and fans. We’ll keep fighting and scrapping, and if things don’t go our way, it won’t be through lack of effort.

“For us it’s about having more of a cutting edge going forward, making our chances count, and restricting the opposition at the other end. It’s a results business and I don’t really mind how they come. Maybe it will take a bit of luck, but hopefully with some injured players coming back, and the boys being refreshed after the international break, we can look forward to this one against Millwall.

“We’ve been working hard on how we do things and we’ll need to be competitive from the first whistle. Millwall are an organised team; Gary Rowett is an old friend and a very good manager. The boys will be up for it and we’re going into it confident of getting our first point or points on the board at the start of a very busy period.”
