Davis wants his side to produce a similar professional display to last season
Steve Davis says that his opposite number in the dugout for tomorrow’s FA Cup tie has made a fantastic adjustment to life in management. Gareth Ainsworth is in charge of Wycombe Wanderers and will be hoping to lead the club to another promotion back into League One. The Chairboys are currently in mid-table but just three points off a potential play-off place.
They will put their promotion aspirations on hold tomorrow to face Crewe Alexandra in the FA Cup first round for the second year running. Crewe won 4-1 at Gresty Road last season to progress to round two and although that result counts for very little now, Steve Davis is after another professional display to make sure we are in the hat again this Sunday.
Ahead of the trip to Adams Park, Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Wycombe have a big squad. We do as well but they have just as many and they have a blend of experience and youth.
“It will be a tough game, regardless of what division they are currently in. We have struggled against League Two clubs this season and we will need to produce a professional performance to get the job done.
“We have to go there with the right attitude and make sure we are positive and not think about the result going the other way. Our priority is to make sure we are in the draw for the second round and we have prepared exactly the same way.
“I think Gareth has done a god job there. He had a fantastic playing career and has made the adjustment into management. It is tough but he has worked hard and he has put his faith in some young players.
“He is building something there and given time I am sure he will have them back up there challenging for promotion.”
