Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth believes that his side’s fixture against a high-flying Bolton team on Saturday will be a ‘competitive’ affair.

Both sides go into the match at Adams Park on a brilliant run of form, which has seen the Trotters and the Chairboys pick up the same amount of points and concede the same amount of goals in the last six matches.

The two teams have managed to accumulate 15 points from their last 18 available, they have won five of their last six, and they have only shipped in three goals each since the turn of the year.

The only difference is that Bolton have scored two more goals than Wycombe (15 to 13).

When asked if preparing for a fixture against another in-form side is difficult, in comparison to teams that are struggling, Ainsworth told the Free Press: “Not at all.

“Sometimes the teams that get beat a lot chop and change formation so you don’t know what is coming.

“With Bolton, I can’t see Ian Evatt changing too much to what he has done in recent weeks because they have done really well.

“No doubt he’ll be saying the same thing about us and we’ll have to adapt and make sure we’re competitive on the day.

"It’s all about checking in on the boys, seeing how they are doing in terms of their fitness, and making sure we’re prepared for what will be another big game."

Bolton have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine matches since January 2, and have scored 10 times in their last two matches.

Additionally, the fixture will take place seven days after the Chairboys defeated Derby County 3-2 at Adams Park, and with the away end expected to be sold out for the second weekend in a row, Ainsworth hopes the Wycombe supporters will outsing the travelling contingent.

He added: “I keep asking if we can get more people at Adams Park because Bolton will bring a lot.

“So if you’re unsure about where to be on Saturday afternoon, please come down as we really do need your support.
