Wycombe Wanderers manager Matt Bloomfield spoke about the rare positives in the club’s 3-0 defeat against Cheltenham Town.

The loss, which was the club’s 17th of the league season, was met with boos at both half and full-time in a game where the Chairboys were flat, passive, and tepid.

However, in a game of little highs, there were two positives that the 39-year-old wanted to bring to light.

He told the Free Press: “It was nice to see Christie Ward get some more minutes in his legs.

“He is a young lad who has got a lot of potential, and he will keep learning.

“It was also good to see Dominic Gape start a game after such a long time out as we wanted to see where he is.

“We learnt a lot more about the players today [April 29].”

Finally, the loss saw goalkeeper Harvey Cartwright make his league debut for the club following his arrival from Hull City in January.

But the 20-year-old was at fault for Cheltenham’s third after he dropped a routine long ball, which allowed Aidan Keena to score his second of the contest in the final minute of the game.

Bloomfield said: “Harvey has trained with us really well and I wanted to give him the opportunity to play.

"He is a goalkeeper that is highly thought of.

“He actually did OK during the game and it was an unfortunate error at the end.

“He is a strong boy and he’ll take this on board.

“He is still learning and this will build his reliance as you get moments like that in what is a tough career in the game.

“But he’s a tough kid.”

Wycombe will end their season against Portsmouth next Sunday.
