Wycombe Wanderers manager Matt Bloomfield has revealed Jason McCarthy could be ‘out for a little while’ despite only just returning from injury.

The 27-year-old missed the entirety of pre-season along with the Chairboys’ first five competitive matches of the campaign, before making his return in the 2-1 away victory at Bristol Rovers at the end of August.

He was then an unused substitute in Wanderers’ next two matches against Sutton United and Northampton Town respectively, but it seems that the right-wing back could be out of action for an undisclosed period.

Speaking to the press ahead of Saturday's fixture with Blackpool at Adams Park, Bloomfield said: “Jack Grimmer is out for a period, Joe Jacobson will also be out, Ryan Tafazolli is working his way back, Jason McCarthy picked up a knock, so he’ll be out for a little bit, but some are returning.

“We just need to make sure we’re ready for Saturday.

“The lads who went away for the internationals have come back with nothing too major apart from a couple of bumps and bruises which is good.”

The Chairboys will take on the North West side for the first time in nearly four years this weekend, with both teams having aspirations of reaching the Championship.

As it stands at this very early stage of the season, Wanderers lie 10th on 10 points and are currently unbeaten in their last four, whilst the Tangerines are two places below and one point behind the Adams Park side.

Additionally, the Chairboys are unbeaten in their last seven games versus the ex-Premier League side with their last league win over Wycombe being in August 2003.

Bloomfield continued: “The past two weeks have been good as we’ve spent a lot of time on the training ground, where we’ve zoomed out in what we’ve done so far this season as a collective.

“We looked at how we’ve done, what we’ve done, what we need to do and how we’re going to do it.

“So we need to build on the two away wins that we’ve had as we always need to improve.

“We want a good performance against Blackpool and hopefully we’ll be able to get that against on Saturday, and if we can do that, then the result will follow.

“And we know it'll be another difficult game as they’ve brought in some good players to go with the ones they’ve already got in.

“Neil Critchley is very experienced and the players he’s got are very good such as Jordan Rhodes, Kyle Joseph, Shayne Lavery, Jensen Wier and Oliver Norburn too.

“Those are just some of the names that they have and we’ll know they’ll be a good side, but we need to be confident amongst ourselves to show what we can do.”
