Wycombe Wanderers manager Matt Bloomfield has admitted that the way Peterborough United scored their last-minute winner in the EFL Trophy was ‘tough to take'.

The Adams Park side had performed admirably during the contest, as Dale Taylor equalised in the 89th minute of the contest, four minutes after Harrison Burrows gave the Posh the lead.

But in injury-time, a deep cross by Burrows flew over Franco Ravizzoli in the Wanderers goal, as Darren Furguson’s team won the competition for the second time in their history.

It was also their first triumph in the cup since 2014, as they kept up their unbeaten record at Wembley with four wins from four.

He told BBC 3 Counties Radio: “After equalising through an unbelievable goal from Dale, I felt we could have gone on and won but there was hardly any time between the goals - it happened all so quickly and we’re very disappointed.

“The manner of how they got their winning goal is tough to take.

“It was a very tactical game and we know they’re good as we studied them during the week.

“In the two games against Peterborough, I thought we were tactically excellent as well today [April 7].

“Both London Road and Adams Park have tighter pitches which allows more pressing in higher areas due to the distances that need to be covered.

“We knew it was going to be different today because of the size of the pitch, and I thought the lads were excellent tactically.”

The introduction of Taylor within the last five minutes seemed to masterstroke by Bloomfield as the Northern Irishman scored with his first touch of the game.

The arrivals of Sam Vokes also helped with Wanderers attacking threat, but Burrows' mishit cross in the dying embers provided the Posh with another Wembley win.

On Taylor’s performance, he said: “I think it was a big call to leave Dale out today because he’s a player with a lot of ability with his feet and we’ll have a massive future.

“But with Josh Scowen being fit, I believed we needed to be solid in the middle of the park.

“Dale came on and scored with his first touch, but we were mulling over when we can get them both on as a pair as they worked well together.”

Finally, on the centre back pairing of Chris Forino and Nigel Lonwijk, he said:  "Joe Low and Ryan Tafazolli have been fantastic for us since Christmas when we went to four at the back.

"And the decision [to leave them out], was made with a heavy heart as I think a lot of them.

"Chris was very good on Monday [against Blackpool], and I thought that he and Nige [Lonwijk], provided us with the centre back partnership that we felt we needed."
