STEVENAGE may have won just one of their last 10 league games but Wycombe boss Gary Waddock was impressed when he watched them on Tuesday night.
The Wanderers chief was in the stands at the Lamex Stadium to watch them come from 2-0 down to earn a home draw against Bournemouth.
It was the fourth draw in a row for the Hertfordshire side, managed by ex-Wycombe player and youth coach Gary Smith, to keep them just outside the play-off spots.
“Bournemouth were in a comfortable position at 2-0 and you thought they would go on and win the game but you can see what Stevenage are all about,” said Waddock.
“They never-say-die, their attitude is spot-on and they got two great goals. They have done great this year but we are going up there in confident mood.
“When they were 2-0 down you wondered how they would react but they turned it around. We went up there last year and said the same thing – we have to match their commitment and work-rate and it will be no different this weekend.
“They know we are fighting for our lives and have picked up a few results so they will be wary of us also.”
Wycombe dropped back into the relegation zone after Walsall's home win over Colchester on Tuesday.
But Waddock said they can not depend on other teams dropping points if they want to avoid relegation come May.
“We have just got to go and try and win every game,” he said. “We can't rely on anyone apart from ourselves. If we perform the way we can then we will give ourselves a chance.”
