Wycombe forward Nick Freeman hopes to nail down his place in the starting line-up after an excellent display against Peterborough United on Saturday.

Freeman was Wycombe's best player despite the 4-2 loss against the Posh and he hoped he had given manager Gareth Ainsworth food for thought after his individual performance.

He said: "I am always trying to work hard and keep in the team and once I stay in the team I then try and keep my shirt.

"I would always much prefer a win rather than a good performance from myself as that means more."

Freeman was also keen to praise club captain Matt Bloomfield, who scored on his 500th career appearance to haul the Blues back into the contest.

He added: "He is unbelievable and what a guy he is.

"He has had an unbelievable career and I wouldn't have wanted the ball to fall for anyone else when he scored."

Freeman pinpointed the opening 10 minutes as a huge mountain to climb as they went 2-0 behind so early on.

He said: "We went two behind and it is always hard going behind like that, especially away at teams like Peterborough.

"We had togetherness and we clawed it back but it wasn't enough in the end.

"This is the difference between League One and League Two. The attackers are more clinical and if you give them a chance they will score nine times out of 10 in this division."
