Wycombe midfielder Sam Saunders is relishing playing in his new deeper role in midfield and says the current winning run is exciting for everyone.

Saunders has played an integral role in Wanderers’ four-match winning run and is playing alongside Marcus Bean in the midfield and the two have struck up a great partnership, with the two’s friendship going back years.

Saunders said: “I am feeling good fitness-wise and I picked up an injury after the Port Vale game, where I felt I did ok, so it was a shame to be out for a bit of time.

“I am enjoying the deeper role. 

“I am 34 now and I need to be realising that I can’t be sprinting past the front man every five minutes and need to use my attributes in a different way now.

“Hopefully I can be a calming influence on the team when it needs to be calmed down and to keep possession and I am enjoying playing with Beany.

“We have come full circle. We have played together and hopefully playing this role can prolong my career for a few more years yet.”

With Wycombe scoring 25 goals in just 12 league games, and 11 in their last four, the Chairboys have found themselves to be top scorers in the whole country and Saunders said the attacking style currently in place is right up their street as they continue to find the net with fantastic regularity.

He added: “It is the way we are, we are a front foot team.

“We want to go out there and get that first goal. Once we get that first goal it plays into our hands as we have an abundance of pace and can hit teams on the counter.

“We want to go out there and get as high as we possibly can in the league and you have to go out there and earn it. 

“It has to be the case that we have to work our socks off and get on the front foot from the off.

“It is exciting football. 

“We may concede a few but we are confident enough that we have a lot of goals throughout the team to win most of the matches.”
