Wycombe Wanderers first pre-season friendly ended in an entertaining 0-0 draw against local rivals Slough Town last Saturday.

The Chairboys were the better side and came close through Dayle Southwell, Paul Hayes and a trialist.

However, Slough keeper Jack Turner kept the visitors at bay with a string of fine saves.

Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth was pleased with the run-out despite his side failing to win the game. He said: “”Goals would have been nice, but we created many chances and the keeper has pulled off some great saves.

“No injuries was a big thing for us today, as at the start of last season we were missing too many crucial players at a crucial time.

“So I’m really pleased with the workout; three of the boys got 90 minutes and did well, most of them got 45 with a few of them playing together for the first time.

“The pitch looks great and it is great to be on it, but it is does slow the ball down and the game had no real tempo like it does on a grass pitch.

“But there were some good performances out there today, and I’m pleased with the way it has gone.

“It’s early days as we have only been back a week and this will be a million miles away from where we’ll be when we come to August 5.

“I’m looking forward to getting through the rest of the pre-season games and to up the tempo.”
