MATT Bloomfield said his man-of-the-match performance and Wycombe's home win over Leyton Orient was for their suffering fans.

The 27-year-old was collosal for Wanderers as they beat the O's 4-2 after a four-goal first-half blitz set them on their way to climbing off the foot of League One.

One of those goals was a rare treat from Bloomfield who has had to wait 48 games to find the net for his beloved team.

And after the misery of defeat Scunthorpe and inconsistency of a troubled season, Blooms dedicated the win to the Blues fans he has given everything for over the past nine seasons.

He said: “It was important for us to react in the right way from Saturday. It was bad day all-around and we were sorry for the supporters and we let them down badly.

“They have endured a tough season, follow us home and away and have seen some good performances and some poor ones.

“The lads do feel it for them when they make that trip all the way up to Scunthorpe and we have given them nothing to cheer all day. It is a close-knit club and the fans are close to the players and it was nice to give them something to cheer about.”

Bloomfield, watched by his dad and granddad at Adams Park on Tuesday, said he would like to be a more regular scorer for Wanderers after his mazy run and dribble set up his low strike.

“I need to score more goals but I have been playing slightly deeper this year,” he said. “I was pleased with that one tonight but mostly pleased with the performance and the win. It fell kindly for me, the defender took the dummy and I am just glad it went in and it was a sweet moment.”
