An injury update has been provided on Wycombe Wanderers striker Lyle Taylor.

The 34-year-old was due to start the club’s EFL Trophy round of 32 fixture against the Fulham U21s on December 6 but was omitted from the squad just moments before kick-off.

He was replaced by Dale Taylor who would go on to score twice in a 3-2 victory for the Chairboys, as they progressed to the round of 16 for the first time in seven years.

Taylor, who is on a short-term contract at Adams Park, has featured in four matches for the club, but is yet to score for his new side.

Speaking ahead of Wanderers’ home match against Shrewsbury Town on December 9, Bloomfield said: “Lyle is alright.

“He hit a shot which he caught wrong in the warm up before the game, and on assessment, he was in a bit of pain.

“When that happens so close before kick-off, it doesn’t give you a lot of time to make an estimated decision on it, so we had to make a snap choice which was to take him out.

“We have to be careful with him as he has spent a long time without playing and the last thing we wanted to do was make him play injured and breakdown.

“It was the right decision and if he gets through training today, he’ll be in the squad selection for Saturday.”

The most pleasing thing about Tuesday was that the messages were carried out.

The Chairboys go into the contest with no wins in their last seven league matches, whilst only earning three victories in their previous 11 in all competitions.

But Bloomfield is hoping that the club’s form can turn around on Saturday.

He said: “A lot has been made of our form in the league but we’ve won a handful of cup games in that time.

“So it was very important for us to play well against Fulham after what was a poor display against Morecambe.

“We needed a result.

"We didn’t play with a style and an identity that I wanted last week, and that’s slipped away in the last few games.”
