Chairboys manager Gareth Ainsworth hopes the side’s current goal run continues as they seek a win from a tricky trip to Cambridge tomorrow.

The Blues have scored eight in their past three league games and 23 in all this season and Ainsworth was pleased that the goals side to the game had been addresses this summer.

He said: “I am hoping people realise we have these experienced strikers and bringing in these guys was the right thing to do.

“We have the youth in here and we have the legs so for these older players to be in the building is great for the young lads.

“It isn’t just what they do in training and in games. Being around these guys for the younger players is benefitting them and you can see the improve week on week.

“I am hoping we are seeing the benefit with Nick Freeman and Josh Umerah coming on and scoring last weekend. Hopefully, the older brigade can keep going for at least one more season because they are definitely writing their own headlines with the goals they are getting.

“It is fantastic to see three seasoned strikers scoring and performing so well.”

With that joint-record tally etched into the record books now, Ainsworth added that he remained hopeful that the squad would continue to get goals.

He added: “You are always hopeful and you don’t expect not to score.
“I was pinching myself when we signed Craig Mackail-Smith and the likes of Bayo last year. Even Nathan Tyson came in on trial and I was thinking how is this guy on trial.

“I am really content to sign these guys and all have scored at a higher level.

“Bayo Akinfenwa has got 180 goals and this is a phenomenal return. It doesn’t surprise me and these guys are flying. I myself was playing beyond 36 and there is no reason these guys can’t continue further.”

At the other end of the spectrum, Ainsworth commented: “Loan signings are key for us and I wanted to add a few more and we needed to get it right.

“We had the likes of Alfie Mawson and Jamal Blackman and we have got them spot on. I am delighted for Josh and he is thriving off working with these experienced strikers.”

Turning attention to tomorrow’s game and Ainsworth is expecting a tough tie against Cambridge.

The 44-year-old explained: “Last year, we started our great run at Cambridge so we have to be on it as football can turn.

“They are very dangerous at home and have a big, big side. We know about their two strikers and they have been on my radar in the past.

"Losing Berry to Luton was a blow for them but Shaun Derry is a very good manager.

“He will have his players working hard for him and they are such a threat at set plays but we want to keep this run going.

“This run away from home we are currently on is absolutely fantastic and we just hope it carries on for us.”
