Matt Bloomfield says running out again at Adams Park will make all of his hard work battling injury worthwhile.
Fans’ favourite Blooms has been out of action for a year due to pelvic shear, but stepped up his recovery on Tuesday by playing the first half of Wanderers’ 5-0 victory over Maidenhead United.
“It’s all going to be worth it when I get back out at Adams Park, that’s for sure,” the 29-year-old told Chairboys Player.” “Just the thought fills me with excitement.
“I’ve been training for three weeks and got 45 under my belt – I’m doing everything the boys are doing.
“I’m hoping to get some more minutes in another game soon and I’ll be ready when Gaz needs to call on me.
He added: “It’s been horrible, horrible, absolutely horrible. It’s been a really long time but good things come to those who wait.
“I’ve worked hard and know that I couldn’t have done any more, so hopefully this will be the start of some good things for me.
“I need to keep working hard and to force my way into the matchday squad.”
Bloomfield suffered no adverse reaction following his return and revealed he could have played for longer if he was allowed.
He said: “It was good, I really enjoyed it and the body felt fine. I could have done more but Theo’s (head physio Theo Farley) not allowing me to do it which is probably the best thing long-term.
“I loved being back out there with the lads. It’s been a long time coming, but that’s 45 under my belt and hopefully I can be ready to get back into first-team action before too long.”
