Wycombe winger Garath McCleary has revealed he has enjoyed playing in his new role as a number 10.

The 34-year-old, who joined from Reading last season, played as a second striker in the latter parts of the previous campaign, accompanying Uche Ikpeazu in the Wanderers attack.

And with Wycombe second in the table with McCleary playing a huge part in that recent success, he aims his fine form of five goals in 10 games will continue.

Speaking after the Gillingham win, he said: “Credit to everyone as we have been battling through.

“They are a good team as they are good with what they do as they play the ball long, but I think we did well.

“I’m looking at the percentages, working hard in the gym and the gaffer has been brilliant with me so long may it continue.

“Playing in a 10 is a new system to me, even though I played there last year.

“It was good to get another 90 minutes under my belt and as long as I can get as many minutes as possible at the age I am, long may it continue.

“Hopefully I can get to Bayo’s age and keep playing and we’ll see what happens.”

He also credited his teammate in Jordan Obita for his recent good form.

McCleary added: “He’s from Oxford as well, we used to go to the same school and I have known him for many years and we have got a good thing going.”
