AINSWORTH WORK­ING BUD­GET WON­DERS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

GARETH Ainsworth was nar­rowly beaten to Novem­ber’s Man­ager of the Month award by Phil Brown, but it’s the Wy­combe boss who can boast the up­per hand after a con­vinc­ing vic­tory be­tween the two sides.

The win will mean more than just the three points for Ainsworth, whose side con­tinue to prove the doubters wrong after their in­creas­ingly im­pres­sive start to the sea­son.

Hav­ing used just 18 play­ers – the fewest by any of the 72 League clubs – Wy­combe’s tight bud­get is still not dis­play­ing any cracks after 11 goals in three con­sec­u­tive league wins.

The busy Christ­mas pe­riod will be a fur­ther test for one of the league’s small­est squads, but a rare treat of nam­ing all seven subs will give the Chairboys hope they can still be top of the pile come 2015.

A poor per­for­mance from Southend in­di­cates a blip rather than the start of a slump, but the tough fix­tures don’t let up as they face sec­ond­place Bur­ton next up.
