Wycombe Wanderers manager Matt Bloomfield has praised the attitude of central midfielder Kian Breckin.

The 19-year-old made only his second league start of the season in the 1-0 loss against Barnsley on November 28, playing 84 minutes.

It was only the seventh time he has featured in a competitive match for the Chairboys since joining on loan from Manchester City, and his second League One outing since the opening day 3-0 defeat to Exeter City.

There have been rumours suggesting Breckin could depart the Adams Park side in favour of regular first team action, but Bloomfield has stated he is ‘proud’ of how the youngster has conducted himself despite not featuring in as many games as his teammates.

Bloomfield said: “He’s not played as much league football as we hoped when we signed him in the summer, and he’s had to be patient for his opportunity and be quite resilient.

“In terms of his character, he has answered a lot of what we’ve asked him.

“He’s come here on loan and has just plugged away to try and improve.

“I’m really proud of how he has conducted himself.”

On his fitness, Bloomfield added: “He had cramps which is understandable.”

 Up next for Wycombe is Morecambe in the FA Cup at Adams Park on Saturday.
