The Chairboys boss will '˜be gutted' if his side don't get a result at the Stadium of Light  '“ which would ensure Kenny Jackett's men remain at the summit of the table.

The Blues are without a fixture this weekend after their clash with Charlton was postponed.

Jack Ross' high-flyers will start as firm favourites to defeat the 15th-placed visitors.

Ainsworth, however, takes solace from Wycombe's form against the top teams this term '“ including a 2-2 draw at Pompey.

And he's confident his troops can '˜ruin a few accumulators' and clinch a win against the Black Cats. 

The Chairboys boss told his club's website: '˜We know Sunderland are the favourites to win but we're going there hoping to ruin a few accumulators and show what we're capable of.

'˜We've played well against some of the top teams so far this season.

'˜Even though Sunderland are on this fantastic run, we'll be gutted if we don't come away with anything because we always believe we can match any team on our day.

'˜Some of our boys will have played at big grounds like the Stadium of Light before but for some of the younger lads it'll be a new experience and it's one to be excited about and hold no fear.

'We're going to go out there with every ambition to get something out of the game and I believe that my players can do it.'
