Reaction: Wycombe Wanderers 0 Blues 0

I am calm and convinced that these players will win games.

Aitor Karanka

Head Coach Aitor Karanka felt his team did enough to beat Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night in the Sky Bet Championship.

Blues left Adams Park with a point after dominating for large periods, only to be denied on a number of occasions by the fine work of Chairboy’s goalkeeper Ryan Allsop.

And the Blues boss believed his team deserved more for their efforts in Buckinghamshire.

Speaking to Blues TV post-match, Karanka praised the players for their endeavours, whilst being understandably frustrated that they did not leave with maximum points.

He said: “I don’t know how much more we can do to win a game. We had chances and did almost everything except scoring a goal. This is not a nice place to come, we knew it was going to be a difficult game. I can only remember one save from Neil [Etheridge] and nothing in the second-half. We had shots on target and corners, we could have had two penalties.

“We are creating and having chances but not scoring goals. Today we were really good, and I did not want to make any substitutions as I knew the players on the pitch were really focused. They were doing a really good job with their commitment and spirit.

The draw was the second time in four days that Blues have been made to settle for a share of the spoils after being held by Coventry last Saturday, but Karanka is remaining concentrated on the task in hand.

Focusing on the positives, he explained: “We have to remain calm and with our spirit, we will win games.

“The commitment has been amazing from everybody, we didn’t make mistakes tonight and at least we have one point.

“We have to keep strong - I am calm and convinced that these players will win games. It is difficult to play better than we did today. Even when we are very good we don’t win the games. I will keep trusting them and we will win games.”

Blues are back in action when they travel to AFC Bournemouth this weekend. The trip is the Club’s first visit to the Cherries since April 2015.
