Gareth Ainsworth has praised the Couhigs for their contribution to Wycombe Wanderers this season.

The American family, who are more than likely going to take over the club in the near future, have helped out the Adams Park side by putting the Chairboys in a strong financial position.

And despite not signing on players on transfer deadline day on Friday, Ainsworth is positive that the future is bright for Wycombe fans.

Speaking after the 2-0 away loss at MK Dons on Saturday, Ainsworth said: “Today [February 1] was disappointing as we had a bit of a hangover from Tuesday night [against Blackpool] as we had some tired legs and the size of the squad is tough.

“I think people are used to us not having major transfer windows money-wise, but hopefully that will change as we’re hoping to bid on players.

“I’m not saying that we don’t have the funds because Rob [Couhig] was ready to back us again, but a couple of deals didn’t come off in time, but that happens.

“The ones who stick the ball into the back of the net are the most expensive ones, and you’ve got to compete with some of the bigger teams in the league to do that.

“So it’s always tough as we’re up against it.

"But, with the Couhigs coming in, things are looking great and I’m sure our summer window will be fantastic."

Ainsworth then added: “Our pitch is heavy as it’s been very difficult at the moment and it takes it out of you.

“We couldn’t afford to do the renovations in the summer that we usually do every year, because of where the club was.

“So, thank goodness the Couhigs came in when they did because they have saved the club without a doubt as the budget was raised, but it was too late for the pitch to be done."

Wycombe's next match is against Bristol Rovers on February 8.
