Despite missing seven first-team players in the 2-0 victory over Bristol Rovers, Wycombe Wanderers boss Matt Bloomfield has praised the individuals who helped him achieve his first away victory as manager.

Ryan Tafazolli, Jordan Obita, Sam Vokes, Nick Freeman, Dominic Gape, David Wheeler, and Curtis Thompson were all absent from the match at the Memorial Stadium on March 14, and the 39-year-old admitted that the names mentioned shouldn’t be rushed back to the frame.

Following their omissions, the development names have made sporadic appearances in several matchday squads.

This includes striker Tjay De Barr, who has played in four of five Bloomfield’s matches in charge.

Speaking on the players that are missing, the manager said: “We have got a lot of injuries and illnesses at the moment so it’s not ideal.

“Taf is not too far away but Curtis is a bit further away.

“They’re working as hard as they possibly can, but their bodies need to take the course they need to heal.

“We hope to have them back soon but we’re mindful of the fact that we don’t want to rush them as we don’t want them to break down.

“The medical team provides everything we need to know and we will welcome them back as soon as they can.”

On his squad depth, Bloomfield added: “The boys have been playing well in recent weeks so we’re asking the same group to go again after a couple of Saturday/Tuesday fixtures.

“But with those who started, I thought Tjay did brilliantly against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night.

“He was such a bright spark and it was good for him to finally start in the league.

“Brandon led the line really well both towards and away from the ball so we’re optimistic about our future.”

Finally, on the win in the West Country which was the club’s second over the Gas this season, he concluded: “Everyone is really pleased with the performance as it was a great result for us.
