Jack Grimmer | "Found some great form which I’m hoping we can carry into the 2nd half of the season"
Wycombe Wanderers currently sit eighth in the Championship and after a good string of form are looking to use the second half of the season as an opportunity to make a playoff push. The Chairboy's sit just two points behind the playoff spots, with the opportunity of making a dream run to Wembley again.
As they bid to make a final push to the play off places, it will be a scrappy one to say the least. With just 10 points between fourth and twelfth place in the league it will be no easy task for Wycombe. Still with 20 games to play and a majority of the teams they face also in the fight for promotion, this definitely has the potential to be decided on the final day of the league one season.
A player that's excited for the opportunity to make that charge is Jack Grimmer. The Scottish born defender has racked up the sixth most played minutes under Gareth Ainsworth this season and has found a good run of form for Wycombe. We asked Jack what he’s excited about below for the upcoming second half of the season and a potential play off return below:
Currently sat in 8th, just a couple points behind the playoff places. How are you feeling about the last stretch of the season?
I’m excited for the remainder of the season. It’s been a tough season, we’ve been below par compared to normal but now we seem to have found some great form which I’m hoping we can carry into the second half of the season.
(Asked prior to Saturday's postponed tie against Bristol Rovers) Tough game coming up Saturday, away to Bristol Rovers who sit just behind you in the table. What's the mind set for yourself and the lads going into this game?
I think we’ve got a positive mindset at the moment because we’re in a good run of form. Confidence is high. Hopefully we can carry on the good performance which saw us beat them on Boxing Day!
Best team performance this year and why?
I’d say Barnsley away. We won 3-0. Everyone was on the same page and the team felt very connected. Peterborough away came close when we also won 3-0.
Into your fourth year with the club, well over 100 appearances playing for the Wanders. Greatest moment while playing for the club?
I was buzzing to pass 100 games for Wycombe. What they may lack in size they make up for in specialness. I’m proud to play for them. My great moment has to be the promotion in my first season. To help take this club to their highest ever position in the football league is my greatest achievement.
