Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth has urged the Chairboys supporters to get behind their side as they prepare for a mouthwatering clash this weekend against Portsmouth.

Pompey are one of the biggest clubs at this level and are one of the favourites for promotion to the Championship.

However, they have endured a tricky start to the season with postponement of fixtures and some rocky results so far.

Ainsworth believes that Kenny Jackett's side will be right up there come the end of the season and wants the Wycombe fans in full voice at Adams Park on Saturday.

He said: "The fans can play a huge part for us.

"Accrington at home on a Tuesday I understand the attendance but I feel for the hardcore sometimes because they haven't got the extra 1,000 or 2,000 fans that I know is out there.

"That hardcore will always be there and that is brilliant and I want to get these others out of their houses and down to Adams Park to support their local team.

"We have had some fantastic matches and fantastic occasions down there and get down on Saturday because it will hopefully be a fantastic game."

The Blues boss is under no illusion as to how tough Saturday's contest is going to be.

He added: "It should be a great game.

"Everyone looks for these fixtures and I am sure they will be coming in huge numbers.

"They have had a stop-start beginning to the season because of fixture congestion and call-ups so it has been a sticky start for them.

"I don't think Kenny has any momentum into them yet. His team will be in the shake-up at the end of the season without a doubt and he has a great squad there and we will have to be at our best to get anything out of the game on Saturday."
