Wycombe Wanderers manager Matt Bloomfield has reacted to his side’s 1-0 away loss against Barnsley, which was the club’s seventh league game without a victory.

An injury-time winner from Sam Cosgrove via a horrendous error by Max Stryjek gifted the Tykes all three points.

Additionally, Wanderers’ Harry Boyes was shown a red card in the latter stages of the contest, which was the club’s first sending-off since September 2022.

Bloomfield, who wanted a reaction from the club’s passive defeat to bottom-of-the-table Reading on Saturday, said: “Our players put so much into that performance, coming off the back of a disappointing result at the weekend.

“The lad showed their character as they bounced back tonight [November 28].

The gaffer elected to focus on the positives from Wycombe’s defensive display but couldn’t help but feel Wanderers might’ve claimed maximum points on another day.

He added: “We rode a storm midway through the second half, where Barnsley had a few chances, but we made some changes and it looked like us that might come away with three points.”

Despite his pride in his side’s performance, he admitted that the way his team conceded the only goal of the game was “extremely disappointing”.

Max Stryjek lost control of the ball in his penalty area under pressure from Barnsley striker Sam Cosgrove, dropping the ball after falling to the ground via a soft challenge.

“We had a couple of moments ourselves, but then to finish the game like that, it’s really disappointing.”

He concluded by reaffirming his commitment to the cause, inspired once again by the work rate and effort of the team he’s put together.

“I’m here to fight, I believe in the work that we’re doing, I believe in this group of players [and] I believe we’ve still got a hell of a chance of doing something this season.”

Bloomfield and his team now turn their attention to this weekend’s FA Cup game at home to Morecambe, with a place in round three of the competition up for grabs for the winner.
