New Wycombe Wanderers signing David Wheeler admitted he has been hugely impressed by the management staff as he prepares for his potential debut against Bolton this weekend.

Wheeler, 28, signed for Wanderers on a free transfer this week from Championship side QPR and the former Exeter man hailed the impact that manager Gareth Ainsworth and assistant Richard Dobson have on the squad.

He said: "They treat everyone with respect, whether that be players or any member of staff and it is a nice environment to be in and everyone feels valued at the club."

Last season, the Blues finished 17th in League One and although he has only been at the club a few days, Wheeler believes that Wycombe can definitely better that next term.

He added: "I would definitely like to think we can finish higher than that.

"We have been put as one of the favourites to get relegated and it is one of those things where as long as we improve from last year, that has to be a positive.

"I am confident with the players that we have, we have a good chance of doing well this year."

The Chairboys have made eight signings this season and a whole host of forwards and come into the club, which is arguably the strongest part of the squad ahead of the new campaign.

Wheeler added he was relishing the challenge and admitted there will be a fight for places across all the competitions Wycombe will be playing in.

He said: "Over the course of the season there are a lot of games such as the Checkatrade Trophy and other cup games where the games rack up and you need that depth in the squad where everyone can chip in.

"People are going to get fatigue and pick up injuries and having the strength in depth we have now, especially up front is really exciting."
