What They're Saying: Gareth Ainsworth

"We won a throw-in in the first minute and they cheered like it was a goal. It was eight months of frustration, desire and need coming out in that moment."

-- Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth on 1,000 fans allowed on Wednesday at Adams Park for the Chairboys' 1-0 loss to Stoke City, the first day that English fans were allowed back in the stands since March. Clubs in areas with "Tier 2" COVID-19 restrictions are allowed to accommodate up to 2,000 fans. Wycombe, which won promotion to the 24-team League Championship this summer but sits in 22nd place, limited the crowd for the Stoke City game to 1,000 in order to test its protocols. (BBC Sport)
