GARETH Ainsworth believes tonight's match against Tranmere Rovers is perfect at enabling Wanderers to get used to playing at Adams Park again.

Blues' home stadium wasn't a happy hunting ground last season as they were beaten no fewer than 11 times in front of their own fans in League Two.

Improving on that is one of Ainsworth's key objectives for this new season and they began the home campaign with a win, seeing off the challenge of Carlisle United 3-1.

Tranmere, like Carlisle, were relegated from League One last season and Ainsworth hopes that will play into Wanderers' hands as they bid to build on their perfect start to the new campaign.

He said: "It's another chance to be at home, get our home games going and feel comfortable at home. It's a great stadium we've got here and we've got some great fans, and we want to bring them back and get them right behind us and see what we are trying to do here."

But, having seen his side take maximum points from their first two games, he warned: "We've got to still keep our feet on the ground."

Ainsworth said after Saturday's win he has no fresh injury concerns after fielding the same squad for each of Wycombe's first three league and cup games of the season.
