BLUES boss Gareth Ainsworth is expecting a tactical battle as he bids to improve Wanderers' faltering home form against Dagenham and Redbridge tomorrow.

Ainsworth believes his team's final six matches of the season are all winnable but has warned his players to expect a challenge against a Daggers side who haven't given up hope of snatching a late play-off place.

While the Eastenders are unbeaten in eight, Wycombe have lost the last two in front of their own fans.

Ainsworth plans to go on the offensive but expects his opposite number Wayne Burnett to come up with a plan to stop Blues ending a run of six games that's brought with it just two points and one goal.

He said: "I want to score some goals in the next six games. It's the only way you can win games - you can't win games with nil on your own score. We have to start scoring and find a combination up front that will start that.

"I keep harping on about this - we need someone to step up to the plate and say, 'I'll be your goalscorer'.

"It'll be interesting to see how we line up and it'll be interesting to see how they do. They have changed and swapped players around in the last couple of weeks.

"They've got strength in their team - it's the strongest squad Dagenham have had for a few seasons. It'll be a good game tactically but I believe we can get all three points."

Ainsworth added: "They are all winnable now until the end of the season. It's six big games and they are all winnable.

"Our home form's not been great under me, not just this season but my whole tenure. I need to be changing that."
