Ainsworth: Don't put pressure on the kids
WANDERERS fans have been told not to expect too much too soon from the side's talented crop of youngsters.
Winger Junior Morias in particular has impressed as an impact substitute from the bench in recent weeks, but caretaker manager Gareth Ainsworth said supporters shouldn't expect him to put in world beating performances when he does play.
Injuries have opened the door for the likes of Charles Dunne and Josh Scowen to stake a regular place in the side, and although Ainsworth is delighted with their contributions he said they will make errors as they continue to learn the game.
Ainsworth is down to the bare bones in terms of team selection and admits regular first team football is too much for some of the kids sitting on the bench - for now.
He said: "Mistakes are going to be made by these youngsters and it's our job to guide them.
"You put Junior Morias on at 17 and the crowd are expecting something from him."
But, speaking after Saturday's defeat by Oxford, he added: "Charles Dunne and Anthony Stewart played well today for youngsters, and Josh Scowen in the middle has been outstanding.
"You look at the bench with Lee Angol, Olly Taylor and the youngest of them Kortney Hause, who's only just 17. It's good for Wycombe because we've got these players for the future and they are up for it. It's maybe a touch early for some of them.
"If they take their chance, they'll get their chance with me."
