Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth firmly believes that surviving in League One would be a bigger achievement for his squad than last season's promotion from League Two.

The Chairboys reached the 50-point marker on Monday thanks to their 1-0 win over Walsall and Ainsworth is preparing his side for Saturday's huge clash against AFC Wimbledon at Kingsmeadow.

A point is likely to be enough on Saturday to achieve their goal of staying up and Ainsworth admits it will be absolutely huge for the club.

He said: "Staying up this season will be a bigger achievement than promotion.

"With the gaps we have had to bridge, resource wise and team wise, League Two is quite close-knit. You are talking £2million between the top and the bottom.

"I don't want to go into how many millions the top teams have in this league and how we are a really small club amongst the likes of Accrington and Rochdale.

"The gaps are huge in this league and we have seen that with the quality but we have held our own or even punched above our weight.

"It has been a fantastic season and I want to end it on a real high now."

AFC Wimbledon looked like certainties for relegation three months ago but they have had a remarkable turnaround under Wally Downes and Ainsworth knows his team will be in for a tough battle on Saturday.

He added: "Wally has done a fantastic job there and we will have to be at our best to compete with them as they are looking very strong.

"They have a great spirit. They beat us 2-1 in December and they were organised and it was a sign of things to come from Wally.

"They have a real chance of survival now but we want six points from two games and I am sure the boys are thinking the same way."

Wanderers have also been unchanged in the last four games, winning two of those matches and conceding just two goals in the process, which Ainsworth believes has really benefitted his side.

He said: "It is very important. Everyone knows what everyone does and you get used to people playing alongside people.

"The teams that do well use the fewest players because they have something good going and the teams at the other end of the league go the other away and chop and change.

"If you get it right and keep the same team, it is a good thing. Injuries and rotations do occur and stuff on the pitch has gone against us and keeping that same team has been really important for us and we are in some good form at the moment."
