“They Are Very Unsung In This Division” – Post Wycombe Reaction From Their Fans and Management

City shared the spoils with Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe this weekend, and I think most fans were satisfied, if not delighted with the application.

How did the opposition see the game? We know Sir Gareth has an affinity for the club but was he happy? That’s where we start our roundup of the opposition reaction.

“I said to the forwards that at times, they will be like seagulls feeding scraps,” he told the Bucks Free Press. “Lincoln stopped some of our key attacking players in Garath McCleary and Anis Mehmeti, but we have also stopped their players too and that is a testament to Lincoln and the work they have done on us.”

He felt we shut up shop, something we’ve done all season against teams that are fancied in the division but was still full of paise for us.

“Teams will shut up shop against us but Mark [Kennedy] is a good guy with a good team, so I am considering this a good point away from home,” he added. “Lincoln are a very good side, and I think they are very unsung in this division. We are very similar-sized clubs and even though they get more fans than us, we have got very similar histories.

“We’ve got to respect this as we can’t win every game we play, but this is a top club and I’m pleased with the point we have got, so you have to credit Lincoln. “It’s always a pleasure to be back here as I love this place, but I wished the travelling fans would have seen some goals.”

He ended with a word of praise for Mark Kennedy, adding; “they have got a brilliant young manager who will go onto big things.”

The game itself brought very little reaction, and with the scores 0-0 at half time, there wasn’t an awful lot to say. Some of their support were clearly not happy at the pace with which the visitors attacked.

There was some praise for their travelling support – 239 made the trip, down on the 550 from last season, but good considering the timing with Christmas and, of course, England.

With ten minutes to go, and very little happening, Wycombe brought off Anis Mehmeti, a constant threat on the ball, which some saw as a sign of contentment with the point.

Finally, the game finished 0-0, and having played against the likes of Forest, Middlesbrough and Brentford in recent seasons, they’re clearly beginning to wonder if they’re going in the right direction when they come to Lincoln and get a single shot on target,.
