Wycombe Wanderers boss Matt Bloomfield has once again thanked the fans’ support ahead of this weekend’s trip to local neighbours, Oxford United.

The Chairboys will make the short trip along the M40 to face Liam Manning’s side who currently sit in second place, whilst the Adams Park club lie in 10th.

However, over 1,000 Wanderers fans will make their voices heard at the Kassam Stadium on October 28, with their club selling out their allotted allocation for the fixture.

Speaking on the supporters, Bloomfield said: "We’ve travelled well recently going back to Charlton, Portsmouth, Fleetwood and Peterborough in numbers.

“The noise the fans made was brilliant and we always travel well to Oxford, so I hope we can give them something to jump and sing about.

“The fans were also brilliant at home to Bolton on Tuesday as their support really gets behind the team, and although we never got the result we wanted, they really did play their part so thank you for that.”

The derby will be the third of four games to be played across the 10-day spell, with the topic of fixture congestion once again being mentioned.

However, whilst Bloomfield admitted there is a ‘quick turnaround’ when it comes to preparation, he believes his squad will continue to ‘improve’ as the season progresses.

He continued: “I guess it does as there is an art in trying to manage the squad with such a quick turnaround in games.

“It makes it busier for us as we need to dissect the information to the players so they can learn so it makes it different.

“But I love the energy the league games bring and we love being here and working hard to get a good performance.

“The lads are recovering well from Bolton and Peterborough as we want to improve.”
