Points target reached – what next for Wycombe Wanderers?

31 March 2016

Gareth Ainsworth has urged his Wycombe Wanderers players to enjoy the last seven games of the Sky Bet League 2 season after reaching their points target.

After losing out in the Play-Off Final last time around, 61 points was the target this term and the Chairboys hit that tally following Monday's 0-0 draw with Notts County.

They sit seventh in the standings – the lowest Play-Off spot – two points ahead of the chasing pack, ahead of a weekend meeting with AFC Wimbledon, who are one of the sides eyeing the top seven.

Boss Ainsworth has praised his team's efforts, and given them free rein for the remainder of the campaign.

He told “For two years running, the boys have delivered what we asked them to with plenty of games to spare, which is a testament to how well they’ve performed and overcome challenges which have come their way.

“When we set them the target of 61 points in the summer, they tackled it head on and developed a determination between them to not just reach that target but smash past it.

“With 61 points on the board and seven games to play, they know they can play with no fear, play with a smile on their faces and give everything they’ve got to see what they can achieve in this seven-game season ahead of them.”

After Wimbledon, the Chairboys face a trip to relegation-threatened York (23rd), before home matches against Barnet (15th) and Yeovil Town (21st).

They then end the season with games against three promotion-hopefuls, in Portsmouth (6th), Accrington Stanley (4th) and Oxford United (2nd).
