This weekend, Gareth Ainsworth will face his former side Queens Park Rangers, which he has brandished as the 'biggest game of our season so far'.

The Wycombe manager has said that his team’s focus is completely on the Hoops after the Chairboys found out they will face Tottenham in the FA Cup fourth round.

QPR is where Ainsworth made his managerial debut when he took over as caretaker boss on two separate occasions, before his move to Wycombe as a player in 2009.

The 47-year-old hasn’t been back to Loftus Road since he left and whilst he has fond memories of his time in West London, he hopes that the spirit at Wycombe is the 'same, if not better'.

Ainsworth said: “If you asked me to choose, I’d rather stay in the Championship than win the FA Cup.

“The Tottenham tie is brilliant for us, but it’s all eyes on going to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium and we can’t wait for it to come around.

“I loved my time there.

“The club means a lot to me and it’s probably where I’m best known as a player. It was my home for seven or eight years and I built up relationships with people that will last forever.

“We had some really special memories, winning promotion at Sheffield Wednesday, going top of the Championship for a while, surviving on the last day.

“I remember I broke my leg playing against Luton but tried to run it off because the game was so important. We had such a spirit and camaraderie there.

“But what we have here is the same, if not better.

“My boys will be reminded very strongly about the importance of this game because we need to get points on the board and we firmly believe we can do it after the results and performances we’ve had in the games against Cardiff and Preston.

“It’ll be awesome to go back there.

“I haven’t been back there as a player or manager since I left.

“It’s a fantastic club; having no fans there will be a killer for me because I enjoyed giving my all for them and it would have been nice to see the place full.

“l might’ve got a decent reception but unfortunately it’ll be an empty stadium for our biggest game of the season so far.

“All the focus is on Queens Park Rangers – that’s the big one.”
