Wycombe Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has revealed to getbucks that  midfielder Matt Bloomfield has offered to play in tonight’s home clash with Yeovil Town, despite having a broken arm.

The Chairboys head into the game with the Gloves with six players, including Bloomfield, struggling with various injuries, putting their potential participation is huge doubt.

Ainsworth is still optimistic that at least one of the six will be fit to return, otherwise he will struggle to fill up the bench, let alone pick a starting eleven.

Sam Wood, Luke O’Nien, Joe Jacobson, Danny Rowe and Paris Cowan-Hall are all struggling with differing fitness problems.

Wycombe are two points behind AFC Wimbledon, who occupy the final play-off place and also have a game in hand, prior to tonight’s fixtures. Last season Wanderers suffered Play-Off Final agony at the hands of Southend United, but Ainsworth is hoping to field a strong team tonight,

“I’m really hoping one of them at least will come out. Matt Bloomfield is desperate to play with a broken arm. I’m not sure we can do that, but that’s the stature of the man.

“He’s in a cast which he’s willing to take off and play, but I think we’ll have to go for medical advice on that.

“Sam Wood and Luke O’Nien are close but we wont risk them, while Joe Jacobson got a whack a few weeks ago which hasn’t settled down totally just yet. Danny Rowe did his hamstring at Barrow and is just getting over that now, and Paris Cowan-Hall has had a small procedure on his ankle.”

It is no win in four for Wycombe and only one victory in their last seven, and know that big improvement is needed if they are to finish in a play-off place once again.
