Substitute appearances against Southend and Exeter in the last few weeks were the 29-year-old's first in Wanderers colours since sustaining a pelvis injury back in August 2012.

And Ainsworth was delighted to see the former Ipswich man back on a football pitch again.

"I know about Bloomsy's nightmare, I had exactly the same thing when I was at Wimbledon and I was out for a year," he said.

"When you do come back and you do have those minutes it is really important to take them. Match fitness is something totally different to fitness and until you are a professional footballer you'll never understand that.

"Blooms playing again is great for Wycombe. He has 300 games for us and knows how we play, he was my room-mate when I first came here - he knows what I want and how I am.

"He's back around the squad now and that can only be a good thing for Wycombe Wanderers."
