Wycombe Wanderers club captain Matt Bloomfield admitted that clashes with Bristol Rovers have added spice as they prepare to face Graham Coughlan's side at the Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

Wanderers have had many important clashes with Rovers down the years, including when managing to defy the odds and stay in the Football League at Rovers' expense in the 2013/14 season with a win at Torquay.

Due to that, games since that memorable day have always been keenly contested encounters and Bloomfield, who has represented the Blues in many of those games, believes Saturday will be no different.

He said: "I think games against Rovers do have that added spice.

"There have been a few things over the years where the game was called when they were 2-0 up [in 2012] and other bits and pieces that have added spice to it.

"I always remember going there. It is a tough place to go and play and it is always a good atmosphere.

"We are looking forward to going down there after a morale-boosting win against Doncaster Rovers and we will be fully fired up trying to bring those points home."

Bloomfield had been out injured for three months with a knee issue and he started the game against Doncaster before being substituted after an hour.

He explained that he has had no ill effects from that appearance and is looking forward to kicking on for the rest of the campaign.

He added: "It was some game to come back to after three months on the sidelines.

"It was great to be back out there with the boys and in front of the home fans and I had been training for a couple of weeks and I felt good and it was just great to be back out there.

"My fitness and sharpness will only improve and whilst I have been out I have been trying to keep my fitness as high as I can and it was great to get that win again after a down period."
