Wycombe Wanderers utility player David Wheeler has admitted that the international break arrived at a ‘frustrating’ time following his return from injury.

The 32-year-old made his first league appearance of the season in the club’s 1-0 victory away at Northampton Town on September 2, whilst also featuring in the Chairboys’ EFL Cup defeat to Sutton United a few days before by the same scoreline.

These were his first outings since May after suffering ‘a couple of strange injuries’ during the summer.

However, Wheeler has stated he will use the free weekend as a chance to ‘get fitter’ for this weekend’s clash with Blackpool at Adams Park.

When asked if the break came at the wrong time, he said: “In some ways, yes.

“It’s frustrating as I’m now back and want to keep on going but at the same time, if I get the training right it’ll help with my fitness, and I’ll be able to get a bit fitter.

“We sometimes increase the intensity when we train when there’s no game on the weekend, so I’ll really put it in this week.

“It’s been very frustrating as I had a couple of strange injuries that have been quite challenging to come over, so to come back out there is one main high for me.

“Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone and coming back is great.”
