Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth has admitted that he ‘can’t wait’ for his side’s Good Friday home fixture against Plymouth Argyle.

The Pilgrims travel to Buckinghamshire over the Easter period three places and five points ahead of the Chairboys, winning three of the last five fixtures.

The Light and Dark Blue Army have also won three of their last five but drew with struggling Gillingham on Saturday.

And following Sunderland’s victory away at fellow promotion-pushers in Oxford United on the same day, the Black Cats have leapfrogged Wycombe in sixth place, but Wanderers are only out of the play-offs on games won.

As it stands, both Wycombe and Sunderland share the same number of goals scored (69), the same number of goals conceded (49) and therefore, have the same goal difference (+20).

They are both also on 73 points for the season, but the North East side are in the play-off places due to winning one more game than the Chairboys so far this season.

Sunderland have won 21 matches to Wycombe’s 20, with the former also having a game in hand over Wanderers.

Overall, there are only 10 points separating Wycombe in seventh and Milton Keynes in second.

Speaking ahead of the match, Ainsworth said: “This is why we are in the game as these are the fixtures we look forward to.

“I’m really pleased with where are in the league and with the fixtures we’ve got left as we’ve got a right chance for these play-offs.

“I won’t be leaving any stone unturned in my preparation as I want my boys to be fired up in what will be a fantastic Good Friday occasion.

“I can’t wait – bring it on.”

And on the fans that travelled to Gillingham, the boss continued: “That’s the biggest crowd I’ve seen at Gillingham for quite some time and I was more than pleased that they enjoyed the day.

“They were bouncing around, singing and shouting and they have been great all week.”
