Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth is expecting a stern test for his side against Rochdale as they can in search of their first away win of the season.

Whilst the Blues have been superb at Adams Park, they are yet to win away from home and have scored just one goal on their travels.

Rochdale came so close to pulling off a huge shock as they drew 1-1 with Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday before bowing out on penalties.

With that in mind, Ainsworth believes Dale will be a tricky test.

He said: "We have been solid away from home, barring the Gillingham game and there are various factors involved in that.

"It was a tough game although we created three more chances than Gillingham. The performance was there still and I believe we have got enough to compete with anyone in this league.

"I can't believe we didn't get anything out of the game at Rochdale last year. Brian-Barry Murphy [Rochdale boss] was gracious in the win and he said they were lucky so I have a lot of respect for him.

"He is doing well and he has a style of play that he wants to keep to and it will be tough because they are a good side on the ball.

"They had Man United midweek and I am not sure if it will play into our hands.

"We have got to get a few of our injuries back and travel well, which we always do, and it will be a nice time to get our first away win, especially as we are sitting in a really good position after 10 games.

"It is not just a one-off. This isn't a fad. Almost a quarter of the season has gone now and we have been a consistently strong side.

"We are performing week in and week out with some real good levels and I am hoping we can turn Rochdale over."
