BLUES skipper Gary Doherty is hoping his side can get their first home win of the season at the second attempt this weekend.
Defeat to Gillingham at Adams Park on Tuesday was a blow to a Wanderers side full of confidence after their opening day victory at York.
But the visit of Bristol Rovers gives Doherty’s team the chance to put that result right on Saturday.
The Pirates visit as one of the pre-season promotion favourites but with a home defeat to Oxford and an away draw at Barnet all to show from their season’s efforts.
Doherty admits Wycombe will need to play better than they did against the Gills but is not pushing the panic button just yet.
He said: “In spells we created a few chances and but needed to score when we were on top. The goal we conceded was disappointing.
“You need to learn from it but you don’t want to get too down on yourselves. We made mistakes in the game and probably didn’t create enough chances.
“They are things we can work on and it is still early days. We have another good game here on Saturday that we need to get a good result in.
“Last year they (Rovers) spent a lot and they have a strong team. Any team that comes here will make it hard for us and we need to be able to break teams down.
“The first win of the season is important and that is out of the way and it is now important for us to get our first home win of the season.”
