Wycombe Wanderers Press Session

In this week’s Thursday Press Session, Keith spoke to Gareth Ainsworth. The news of Andrew Howard’s imminent departure from the club broke this week and Gareth praised the immense contribution Andrew has made to the club. He then looked back at a good week for the team. Unfortunately, Anthony Stewart’s injury against Oxford will lead to him being out of the team for a while. Gareth looked ahead to the game against league leaders Portsmouth and finally explained the difficulties in having to manage so many games in quick succession.

 

Keith also spoke to Craig Mackail-Smith who was pleased with both the club & his start to the season. He exclusively said that for his goal against Bradford City, the corner from Joe Jacobson might have been going straight in but as a striker, he is deadly from 1 yard out. Craig said that the last minute winner against Fulham Under 21s would increase the pressure on places in the starting line-up against Portsmouth on Saturday. Finally, Craig confirmed that he is not Alex Samuel’s older brother…. or indeed his Dad!
