Wycombe full-back Jason McCarthy is confident that picking up points at the likes of Portsmouth and Sunderland this season will stand the Blues in good stead ahead of Saturday's game at Luton.

The Hatters are unbeaten at home in League One this season and are on a long unbeaten run in the division stretching back to October.

Wanderers produced superb performances in red-hot atmospheres at Fratton Park and the Stadium of Light earlier on in the campaign and the Chairboys' record against the division's leading lights is excellent.

McCarthy said: "This squad is full of big characters and people like going out in the main stage and showing what they can do.

"That comes from the gaffer as well. He installs that in us and gives us that self-belief that we can go anywhere and get results.

"Saturday will be no different and we will be looking to go there and upset some people."

McCarthy has been part of a Wycombe backline that has kept three clean sheets in their past four games and the former Southampton man explained those shutouts are a great platform to build from.

He added: "It is pleasing and we haven't had enough clean sheets this season.

"The defensive record has been pretty good and it is nice. There have been quite a few games we have won 3-2 and some 2-2 draws as well and we conceded a lot around Christmas and it has been nice to come out of that with this run and we need to keep that up now."
