Wycombe Wanderers defender Chris Forino believes the Chairboys are ‘still within touching distance’ of reaching the play-offs this season.

Despite winning five games in a row, the Adams Park club are sitting outside the top six.

Currently just three points off the lucrative spots in League One, Wycombe will travel to fellow promotion rivals, Shrewsbury Town, this weekend.

Speaking on his side’s current form, which includes winning six of the last seven games, Forino said: “We’re buzzing.

“It’s another game ticked off in what has been a tough week as we have faced two of the teams in and around us [Derby and Bolton].

“We’ve come out with nine points from the three games so it has been a really good week.

“It’s really good at the moment.

“For the last 15 to 20 games last year, we finished really strong and we know it has been an inconsistent season, but we’re picking up form and we’re hoping to finish the campaign really well.

“Considering how shaky our start of the season was, we’ll still within touching distance and everyone knows that if Wycombe are in touching distance, then we have a real chance.”

Finally, the 22-year-old wished his teammate Jack Grimmer well, after the latter suffered a concussion in the Chairboys’ 1-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers on February 18, whilst also congratulating Alfie Mawson on a ‘brilliant’ playing career.

Mawson retired from the sport on February 14 at the age of 29 due to persistent knee injuries.

In all, he played 72 times and scored seven goals across two spells for Wycombe.
