Wycombe Wanderers have made an excellent start to 2018 in League Two.

Two wins out of two against Forest Green and Colchester sees the Chairboys sit handily in fourth place, cementing their position in the play-offs.

They are in a fantastic position to strike. they just have 19 games remaining this season. No cup distractions with just one aim in mind. Promotion.

The win against Colchester was all the more impressive given the raft of injuries in defence but with Tafari Moore and Nathan McGinley stepping into the breach.

Both loanees were magnificent for the side on their EFL debuts and although they lit up Adams Park, boss Gareth Ainsworth was wary just to keep a lid on the excitement of their performances.

He said: “Tafari and Nathan were outstanding last week.

“Finances dictate the players we can get in and I am always looking. There are always gems that other clubs miss and I am glad we got these two over the line.

“However, lets wait five or six games before we start praising them too highly. They have come in and done really well but they are the ones that other people didn’t fancy and missed on the radar because these bigger names come to the fore.

“It is a talent that myself and Richard Dobson have had to work on. We never look at the top signings or the ones that everyone is after because we are not going to get them.

“We look at the ones that nobody is after and we try and get the best of them in and that is how we work which is dictated by what we have here.

“With Tafari making his league debut and getting in team of the week is fantastic for him and Nathan will go onto play Middlesbrough first team as well.

“I am really proud that they came in and did well on their league debuts and I am pretty sure there is plenty more to come from both.”

Next up is a trip to Crewe for the Blues. Wycombe enjoyed one of their finest moments against the Railwaymen this season with a 3-2 win, turning round a 2-1 deficit with three minutes to go.

However, Gresty Road provides mixed memories for Ainsworth and he feels his side are in for a very tough test in against David Artell’s team on Saturday.

He added: “We have indifferent results there in recent years.

“I remember winning and losing in the cup and losing in the league. It is a tough place to go.

“We have seen the likes of Chesterfield beating Luton the other week and it shows anyone can beat anyone in this league.

“It is not a given that we should beat Crewe Alexandra. They are scrapping for their lives.

“David is a manager who is cutting his teeth and will be fighting to try and survive and it will be very tough.

“They have picked one or two injuries up and there is always transfer talk around George Cooper.

“We are scoring goals. We bagged another three on Saturday and goals have been plentiful this season which is great.

“If we can score goals, we always give ourselves a chance.”
