Gareth: Get down and support

Gareth encourages fans to head to Adams Park and stay to catch all the action.

Gareth Ainsworth is looking forward to Saturday's match against Gillingham in what he expects to be another tough League One fixture.

Following the last gasp winner against Morecambe on Saturday, the Chairboys boss made it clear that managers will not be underestimating this Wycombe side.

"I’m sure he’ll have told his players - don’t expect anything less than a good battle with Wycombe Wanderers because that’s what they do."

However, Gareth was quick to highlight that you cannot underestimate any team in League One this season, as shown by recent results.

"Look at the Shrewsbury game, that was one of our toughest games this season. Believe me, league position doesn’t mean a great deal, but being in League One means a lot. If you’re in League One, you can be competitive, you can beat anyone and Doncaster proved that last week against MK Dons - or look at Ipswich who were the top favourites at the start of the season and have lost against some of the lower teams.

"We’re not looking at teams and thinking that they’re the best because they’re at the top, or they’re the worst because they’re at the bottom. It’s League One and you have to be competitive in every game because if you’re not, you’ll get your fingers burnt - teams will come and turn you over because they’re good professionals, good level players."

There's plenty to be positive about, even with the prospect of a tough season ahead, with one of the most versatile Chairboys sides the club has ever seen at Gareth's disposal.

"The beauty of Wycombe at the moment is we’ve got this really deep squad and it’s really good to be able to rotate players in, and keep players out. I’m privileged at the moment and I can only thank the owners because I’ve never been in this situation before. So, thank you for letting me get these players in and I hope to repay that with a successful season."

Gareth urged fans to get down to support the Chairboys against Gillingham at Adams Park, and to not miss any of the action.

"Don’t leave early! There are no other league games on, so please get down, support the Chairboys. They need you, I need you and we love you being there!"
