Call for Wanderers fans to get Adams Park rocking

This Is Local London: Matt Bloomfield Matt Bloomfield

MAKE some noise is the plea to Wanderers fans from Matt Bloomfield and Gareth Ainsworth as Blues face a relegation six pointer against Northampton Town tomorrow.

Only goal difference is keeping Wanderers out of the bottom two and they face the side immediately below them in the table in a game that will go a long way to deciding who will remain in the Football League next season.

The Cobblers have sold out their initial allocation of 1,800 tickets for visiting fans and Wanderers players went out onto the streets of High Wycombe this week to hand out leaflets and spread the word about the game, hoping to attract more supporters along.

And Blues boss Ainsworth and the club's longest serving player Bloomfield said it's crucial as many supporters get down to Adams Park as possible - saying the club need their backing now more than ever.

Bloomfield said: "Make some noise and get behind us. We need it, the club needs it. Please get behind us, make a lot of noise and drown out the away following from Northampton.

"We need everyone we can and every voice we can get on Friday to back us and urge us forward.

"Hopefully we can give them something to cheer about. It's up to us to create an atmosphere on the pitch but equally it's great when there's an atmosphere in the stands as well. We'll be doing our utmost to give them something to cheer about and enjoy their afternoon."

Ainsworth said Adams Park was rocking for Blues' last home match against Dagenham and Redbridge and it went a long way to securing a vital 2-0 win - and he wants more of the same.

He said: "No matter how good they were in the seasons when we got promoted, or the FA Cup semi finals, this is just as important. We might be at the other end of the table and the club's been through a big change since those days, but it's still the same fans, it's still the same badge and we still need the same passion to get behind the boys. It makes a hell of a difference.

"It's times like this supporters can step up to the mark and prove they are true supporters, rather than sunny day golfers like I am - I only play when the sun shines so I'm not a true golfer.

"A famous Liverpool manager once said, 'If you're not going to support us through the bad times, don't come in the good times'. I know the ones who have been there during the bad times. These are bad times but I'm sure there will be good times over the next two weeks."

He added: "The fans know the situation and the enormity of where we are in the league, and what we want to achieve. They can play a big part in it.

"I've had some really supportive letters off fans - they are right behind us. It's a true supporter owned club now because they want to get involved. The best way to get involved is to get down and get your voices going for Friday. It's going to be a really good occasion, a real derby atmosphere. The lads are going to need you."
