The Blues ‘have gelled and are still grow­ing’

Keeper points to solid per­for­mance at noisy Pom­pey

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

out­fit Che­sham United Re­serves are in the hat for the next round though after see­ing off Lev­er­stock Green 2-0 thanks to Corey-Jay John­son and Jack Har­ris.

Their league game with Stony Strat­ford Town at the week­end was post­poned be­cause of a wa­ter­logged pitch and they are were solid de­fen­sively and we’re still grow­ing.

“Last year, pos­si­bly, we might have crum­bled un­der the pres­sure. We’re look­ing strong this year though, par­tic­u­larly at the back, and we’ve had a few clean sheets. When we do con­cede it’s only the one or two.

“We’re all dis­ap­pointed we didn’t come away with the three, but Portsmouth is a tough place to come with the fol­low­ing they’ve got and they are do­ing quite well in the league. I think if you’d asked most peo­ple be­fore the game if they’d have taken a 1-1 draw they’d have said yes.”

Wy­combe man­ager Gareth Ainsworth – who faces one of his for­mer clubs this week­end when Cam­bridge United visit Adams Park – is en­joy­ing see­ing his team re­side in the top three places after last sea­son’s bat­tle with rel­e­ga­tion.

He said: “The pres­sures be­ing at the bot­tom are hor­ri­ble. You’ve got to try and keep fo­cused. Be­ing at the top just breeds con­fi­dence and it backs up what you’re try­ing to do in train­ing ev­ery day. The lads are great and fan­tas­tic to work with.

“I know what I’ve got here at Wy­combe Wan­der­ers and we’ll just keep go­ing. The main aim is to never re­peat what hap­pened last year. If we just keep get­ting th­ese points on then we’ll be far away from the bot­tom this sea­son.”

Mean­while, Wan­der­ers’ home clash with Bur­ton Al­bion has been moved to Mon­day, Novem­ber 17, for live Sky Sports cov­er­age, hav­ing orig­i­nally been sched­uled to be played two days be­fore.
