Blooms aiming for best day as a Chairboy

2 May 2014

Vice-captain Matt Bloomfield says keeping Wycombe in the Football League would be the “best day of his career”.

The long-serving midfielder has featured in many memorable occasions during his 10-and-a-half years at Adams Park, but admits that preserving League 2 status would mean much more than anything that has gone before.

“I just discussed this with Nick (Arnold) on the way in this morning and I said tomorrow could be the biggest game of my career and it will be if we stay in the Football League. It will be the best day of my footballing career without a shadow of a doubt.

“I’ve been very lucky to be involved in some big games over my 10-and-a-half years, but this is definitely the biggest and most important because it’s to keep the club In the Football League.

“It’s a club that means a great deal to me and to be able to keep us in the league would mean so much.”

Wanderers must win at Torquay to stand any chance of avoiding relegation, but other results must also go their way, with one of Northampton Town and Bristol Rovers having to lose to ensure Blues will be playing League 2 football next season.

Bloomfield added: “If we don’t win our game it doesn’t matter what happens elsewhere so it’s a must win game for us, we have to go down there and do our job.

“We have to go and attack them and give them everything we’ve got, which I know we will.

“We have to win a game of football and that’s the be all and end all for us. If we can then hopefully there will be a favour elsewhere and we’ll stay in the Football League which is what we are all aiming to do.

“I’ve sent Gary Waddock a text and he’s assured as that he will be going to Northampton in full strength and looking for a win to finish off their season.

“He’s fully focused on that and we’re sending him all of our best wishes, so hopefully they’ll go and do us a favour, or Mansfield will at Bristol Rovers.

“All that matters to us is that we win our game. What happens elsewhere will happen, we can’t affect that.

“All we can do is go to Torquay, focus on our job and if we’ve done that come 4.45 or 4.50pm then hopefully it will be enough.”
