Gareth: Fans can fuel win against Morecambe

Chairboys will need to be at their best to see off Morecambe, says Blues boss.

30 September 2021

Gareth Ainsworth addressed the media on Thursday morning after cycling to Marlow Road from his Finchampstead home due to the petrol shortage, and said the support of the Wycombe fans can fuel his team's push for another three points at home to Morecambe on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

180 Wanderers supporters made it to Shrewsbury in midweek for the 2-1 victory and Ainsworth hopes the national crisis won't hamper fans' hopes of getting to Adams Park as they seek three more points to maintain their perfect start to the season in HP12.

"Some of those fans will have got home late and got up early for work the next day, and perhaps even earlier to go and find fuel somewhere after using a tank to get to Shrewsbury and back", he said.

"Those supporters show so much passion and commitment and we want to replicate that on the pitch every time we cross that white line. I was so pleased that we got the win for them, to reward their dedication, and now we want to get another win on Saturday.

"Morecambe are definitely a team we've struggled against down the years. Every time we've got close to achieving something, along come Morecambe to put a spanner in the works! They're a good team and they've turned some big names over already this season, so do not underestimate them. People did that to us when we reached League 1, and we got some good results that people didn't think we were capable of.

"I've asked the boys to give me maximum points if we want to achieve something this season. To beat Morecambe at home is a big ask but we'll be working really hard to work out what we're going to do, and what plan to put in place to deal with their strengths.

"Where we're sat right now is really exciting so please get down to Adams Park to get behind the team again."
