Buzz is back for Ainsworth
PROUD Wanderers caretaker boss Gareth Ainsworth said the buzz is back at Adams Park as Blues brought their winless streak to a halt.
They hadn't won since the opening day of the season at York and had tasted victory just once in 18 matches until Gary Doherty and Josh Scowen netted headers in both halves to break the sequence against Torquay.
Ever since being handed the reins all Ainsworth has asked for is passion, drive and commitment - and he said he's getting that from all his players.
He said after Blues had beaten Torquay 2-1 at Adams Park: "There were people flying into challenges we haven't seen fly into challenges as Wycombe players - they are doing that now. I'll always get it from the Fosters and the Lewises and the Winfields, but now I have from the Grants, the Morgans and the Kuffours.
"It just shows everyone is so up for it. They are not just talking, their actions are speaking far more words than any talking can do.
"The attitude and spirit they've got is fantastic and they can't drop that now. They have shown it to me, I know it's there - they can't say we can't do it, because they have done it.
"Results will come and go - performances are important to me.
"They responded to me in training and they responded to me on the pitch."
He added: "Everyone seems to have lost their way at this club in the last six months - the players, the fans, everyone. We all seem to be coming together again, united and all wanting the same thing. There's a bit of a buzz about this place."
Wanderers have taken four points from the two matches they've played at home under Ainsworth's stewardship, having started with a 3-0 loss at previously winless Dagenham and Redbridge.
Despite the delight that was clearly evident on the temporary manager's face after seeing off Torquay, he said he didn't feel any greater level of satisfaction after the win compared to Tuesday night's draw against another Devon side, Plymouth Argyle.
Ainsworth said: "I was as proud Tuesday as I am tonight. Tuesday we worked really hard and but for the goalkeeper we'd have won that game as well. I can't say I'm even more proud today.
"I'm so pleased we've got the result today - it's nothing less than we deserved."
