Gareth Ainsworth: Thanks fans for continued support

Heading into last Saturday's clash with Chesterfield the Blues had not won a match since December 21, a run of nine games.

But successive 1-0 wins over the League Two leaders and then away at Exeter have reignited their season and Ainsworth paid tribute to the Wycombe faithful for their loyalty after moving five points clear of the relegation zone.

"The fans are brilliant," he explained. "I see the familiar faces and the ones it really means something to.

"They are really behind me and I can't thank them enough for sticking by me, because I was on a really bad run but the board, the players and everyone was always behind me.

"No one ever doubted what we could do and now we are proving it.

"But let's not get carried away, that is two wins but we need a few more to be safe in this league. It is another bunfight but I know I have enough to get out of this."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
