PETER Murphy said he hates getting beaten, having helped Wanderers win both of their two opening league fixtures.

Goals from midfield were missing from Wycombe last season and the former Accrington man has supplied two in two from the engine room at the start of the campaign.

His two strikes have contributed to Blues' total of five goals in the first two games - last season it took them five matches to reach that goal tally.

Murphy repeated manager Gareth Ainsworth's mantra that the results will come from hard work.

He said: "You see for yourself we've got quality in that dressing room. When I met the gaffer and Dobbo [assistant manager Richard Dobson] they told me what it was going to be like - full of positives, everyone works hard for each other at this club.

"I give my all every game. I'm a winner - I don't ever like getting beaten in any game.

"The result is first and foremost but to score is even better.

"I like getting into the box from midfield and taking the opportunity when it comes."

Wanderers are back in action against Tranmere Rovers tomorrow night and Murphy said a good run of form means the players are looking forward to the matches coming round even more so than usual.

He said: "We have to keep doing the same things on Tuesday. We have to keep working hard.

"We can't wait for it. We're made up there's a game on Tuesday."
