Gareth Ainsworth

"There are several teams - Blackpool, Colchester, Mansfield and ourselves - who are finding form at the right time and pushing towards the play-offs. It'd be nice to make it with momentum. AFC Wimbledon did it last year and it paid dividends.

"There is always one team that sneaks in there at the end and there's no reason that can't be Wycombe Wanderers. I'm really excited to see what we can do at the end of this season. The players are giving everything. I've said that there hasn't been too much pressure on the season, but we need to turn the key now."

"We have another two players injured now and one suspended, so we're low on numbers. We don't know what is going to happen with the two injured lads, but we built a squad with depth specifically for these moments."

Dave Jones (Hartlepool Manager)

“It’s probably smash and grab from them. In the first half we suffered with one lapse in concentration but overall I felt we had enough chances and enough positions to do better and get an equaliser.

"Our final ball let us down. We got in to some great positions but shot over the bar or overhit a cross and they’re the problems we’ll keep on working on.

“When we got our best opportunity they just got in each other’s way but it’s frustrating because it wasn’t a bad performance – they just had more experience on the pitch and I think they used that."
