BLUES boss Gareth Ainsworth said he'll resist the urge to make wholesale changes after his side lost their 100 per cent winning start to their League Two campaign.

Ainsworth has kept the same starting XI in each of Wanderers' first four matches of the season and the inclusion of Stuart Lewis amongst the substitutes against Tranmere at the expense of Junior Morias is the only alteration he's made to his matchday squad of 18.

But despite admitting to his team running out of steam after a hectic opening to the season and a series of industrious displays, Ainsworth said that doesn't mean sweeping changes are necessary.

He said: "It'll be my decision. The first four games have been great - three of them have been outstanding performances.

"We'll see where everyone is fitness-wise. That will be me, the coaching staff and medical team to decide where everyone is. There's players waiting to get in the team and show what they can do and there's players who want to put that right and do the job at Stevenage. We don't have to ring the changes."
