Daniel Farke: Wycombe have a lot of bravery and togetherness

27 February 2021

Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke praised the job that Gareth Ainsworth is doing at Wycombe Wanderers in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

The Chairboys are bottom of the Championship going into this Sunday’s game against City, but will be confident off the back of Tuesday’s 1-0 win against Reading.

“I really do like them,” Farke said. “I like what Gareth (Ainsworth) is doing. He has delivered for years and they are brave and they go with their style. 

“They always want to bring their style on the pitch, try to bring their offence and I like this, I like this bravery. 

“It is a sign of their fighting spirit that they go into their games with a lot of bravery and togetherness. It is fantastic what they are doing. 

“I would like them to stay in this league because it is good to have these characters.”

Farke was also asked to go into more detail on the signing of Oliver Skipp in the summer, after the Tottenham loanee scored his first senior goal on Tuesday.

“It was a relentless schedule and we needed some steel,” he said. “Also, we knew our reputation had grown and a lot of teams would sit deep and we are still one of the best sides in terms of creating chances. 

“However, we had to make sure we were solid as well to make sure that we could return to the dressing room with clean sheets. 

“In the long term we want to return to the Premier League as quickly as possible and stay there and to do that you have to be solid. 

“However, the major focus was on this season because it is too early to think about the Premier League because there are many more games to go.”
