Wycombe v Tottenham: What has been said?

Gareth Ainsworth will show his current side highlights of the last time Wycombe played Tottenham.

The Chairboys faced Spurs four years ago and were minutes away from causing a real shock before losing 4-3.

Ainsworth said: “I will be playing the boys the highlights of four years ago.

“What we achieved as a League Two team, with similar players, I have still got players who played that day.

“There is definitely comparisons to be made. We were a League Two team going to White Hart Lane, we have come on, we are a Championship team, we know we are better now. I will be playing them those highlights, without a doubt.”

Ainsworth added: “I will be drawing on some goals and history, I will be making sure the players know what the FA Cup means to me as a person and what it means to Wycombe Wanderers. We will definitely be using this underdog tag to the maximum.

“I am real good friends with Keith Ryan who scored against Liverpool in the semi-final but I won’t go as far as bringing him in for a team-talk.

“We are still a lower-league football team and we have got a chance to do something special on Monday and I am hoping we can be the shock of the fourth round.”
