Matt Bloomfield has reacted to Wycombe Wanderers’ 5-2 home victory over promotion-pushing Peterborough United.

An Archie Collins own goal, a Jack Grimmer finish, a wonderful thunderbolt from Kieran Sadlier and late strikes by Sam Vokes and David Wheeler gave the Chairboys their second win in two weeks.

It also means they are now unbeaten in their last five games against the Posh.

Here is what Bloomfield had to say.

On the result against Peterborough who are in the play-offs

“We had a tough time over the winter months, so it’s been important for all of us in the group to remain positive as I have massive faith in this team and my staff.

“We’ve had testing moments so to enjoy a day like today in front of our supporters against an incredible team in our league is great.

“I told the boys that I have huge belief in them.

“I’ve seen the pain they’ve gone through and I see what they give me on the training ground.

“We’ve had moments go against us but that hasn’t altered my belief in the group at all.”

On starting Richard Kone and leaving Sam Vokes on the bench

“Sam had a good game against Cheltenham last week, but he had a slight issue with his calf.

“I also thought it would be a running game against Peterborough, so I didn’t want to risk Sam and that’s why we started with Richard.

“Sam’s a huge player for us and he’s already missed a large part of the season.”

On Peterborough bringing it back to 3-2 after being 3-0 down

“You’re only human to get nervous as you’re 3-0 up and then you’re 3-2 up, as we’ve had games this season when we’ve conceded late.

“The character the boys showed was really important as it helped us get over the line.

“We’ve had a few good weeks in front of goal as we’ve tweaked a few things.

“The competition within the group has heightened, and the boys are playing with a lot of confidence.

“We had a few lean periods so for the goals to come at once shows we’re working well.”

On Sam Vokes and David Wheeler both scoring after coming off the bench

“It’s very pleasing as there have been other moments in the season when you question whether you did the right thing or not.

“So for Sam and David to have the impact that they had was fantastic.

“I’ve been very consistent with my message to the players which is that this is a squad game and not just a first 11.

“For that come to fruition today and to see two of them score was great.”

On Kane Vincent-Young’s assist to make it 1-0

“We brought Kane in as we’re playing with three at the back, and I thought he’d be a great option at left-wing back.

“Sadly for him, he has his season disrupted because of injury.

Since he’s come back in December, he’s played on both flanks and has been a very important player for us.

“I think I left him out of the squad for the Wigan game, and the way he trained on that Thursday and “Friday showed how much desire and determination he has.”
