Richard Logan revealed he asked boss Gary Waddock if he could play in the friendly at Staines last Saturday after initially not being included in the squad.
Wanderers took a young side to Wheatsheaf Park and came from behind to win 2-1 with Logan heading in the Blues’ first goal.
“It was nice to get some more game time,” he told Chairboys Player. “I wasn’t meant to be in the squad, but I asked the gaffer if I could have 45 minutes because I got injured in the first game (against Farnborough) and felt like I needed it.
“I felt a bit tired against Forest Green and needed game time so it was good to get 60 minutes under my belt and get a goal as well.”
Logan is set to feature again in tonight’s friendly at Blue Square Premier side Luton Town and he is hoping for the same kind of service that he received at Staines.
He said: “If we’ve got people who can cross the ball like (Grant) Basey did then I will thrive on that kind of delivery. If we get the balls into the box then I will be there trying to head them in.
“I like to try and play as well, but my bread and butter is trying to get into the box and get my head on crosses.
“You feel that you are getting a lot fitter with each game. Training has been hard and that’s what we need.
“The gaffer has been putting us through our paces with the runs, but you have to do that and that’s what pre-season is all about.”
