Training pictures: Players get ready for Wycombe FA Cup encounter

The question came from in the reporter in the pre-match press conference - and the answer from boss Rémi Garde couldn't have been firmer.

"After Premier League game after Premier League game, does this FA Cup match give you some relief and is there a lighter feel around the training ground?"

Garde replied: "No we don't feel that! We are still thinking about the situation of the club.

"Working without pressure wouldn't help us.

"We certainly didn't start the week by saying 'We've got an easy match on Saturday, so we can work lighter.' No, not at all!

"That's also because we have two Premier League matches coming very quickly in a row after Wycombe.

"We are training well - as hard as we can - with the players we have fit at the moment."

Garde has been pleased with the application of the lads this week and knows that a win at Adams Park would offer much needed relief to his players.

He added: "A victory could be the start of a better feeling among the players, the team and the club.

"That's what I am looking for this weekend."

The images were once again taken by club photographer Neville Williams, who was given exclusive access to Bodymoor Heath.
