Gareth Ainsworth is expecting another tough test against an ‘inspirational’ Luton Town side as Wycombe travel to Kenilworth Road this weekend.

The Chairboys are yet to pick up a point or score a goal in the league so far this season, but he insists that they are working out ways of picking up points in the Championship.

Speaking before Saturday’s game, the 47- year-old is looking to use the Hatter’s great escape last season as inspiration for his side this campaign.

Ainsworth was also full of praise for Luton’s manager Nathan Jones, who masterminded a great escape in keeping the Bedfordshire side in the league last season.

He said: “Nathan is a great manager.

"He kept them up in the Championship last year and after his brief break becoming Stoke manager, he’s come back and worked the league out.

“They have started like a train so we are going to have a tough game without a doubt.

“They went through a lot of financial difficulties and got themselves out of the mire, and we're a team that seemed to be alongside them a lot.

“We’ve had some great battles over the years but this is going to be a tough game.

“They’re an inspiration to us to stay in the Championship.

"I’d love to do that, but there’s a lot of work to do before we start thinking about that.

“We need to start getting our first points on the board and I’m looking forward to trying to do that at Kenilworth Road.”

Saturday’s clash will be the 29th time the two sides would have faced each other, with Wycombe only winning five of those matches.

The last time these two sides were in the same division was in the 2018/19 campaign when Luton and Wycombe were in League One.

That season, the Hatters won promotion to the Championship whilst Wycombe enjoyed a late run of positive results which kept them in the division.

So far this season, Jones’ men have won two of their opening three league matches and are currently sitting in seventh place.

And with the odds firmly in favour of the hosts, Ainsworth is still hopeful of the club breaking their duck on Saturday.

He continued: “We’re still working this league out and still want to get some players in but we are looking forward to the game.

“It’s exciting, it’s a Championship game where we can learn plenty and hopefully get something from Kenilworth Road.”
