Blues look to end Spotland hoodoo
BLUES boss Gareth Ainsworth wants his side to get back to winning ways at Rochdale tomorrow - and end their hoodoo in the process.
Wanderers have lost their last two at Spotland and last season were thrashed 4-1 by a side managed by Ainsworth's old friend Keith Hill.
The pair were apprentices together at Blackburn but Ainsworth will be putting friendship to one side as he looks to secure a key win against another side at the top end of the table.
Blues are only above Dale by virtue of scoring one more goal and the Lancashire side are unbeaten at home, having won three and drawn one.
But Ainsworth said: "We are not going up there just for one point, we're going up there for all three."
He admitted however: "Going up to Rochdale hasn't borne much fruit for Wycombe Wanderers and it would be nice to put that to bed.
"I'm expecting a tough game. Something will have to give."
Ainsworth added fans should look at the positives from a draw against struggling York last time out, as it extended his side's unbeaten stretch to six matches.
He said: "We can take a lot of positives from York, which was potentially a big banana skin so I was pleased we didn't lose the game. Another ten minutes on the clock and I think we'd have taken the points.
"Look at the big picture, ten points from four games says a lot for us at the moment. We are on a good run and we'll keep pushing."
