Wycombe boss Matt Bloomfield hailed his side after they secured their third away league win in a row following a 3-1 victory against already-relegated Carlisle United.

Garath McCleary scored either side of Richard Kone’s effort as the visitors left Brunton Park with all three points.

Alfie McCalmont had equalised for the hosts but his strike was nothing more than a consolation.

Speaking after the win, he said: “It’s been a really good week for us on the road.

“There’s been a lot of travelling but I’m pleased with the players and the effort they have shown.

“I was happy with the goals. We showed we can be a real threat. We’re finishing the season strongly and look may that continue with the final two games.

“Football is all about momentum and it’s been a good run. We want to finish the season strongly.

“We’ve started to show what we can do and long may it continue heading into next season.

“The only disappointment was that we didn’t keep a clean sheet.”

Cumbrians’ boss Paul Simpson was fuming with the goals his side conceded, and he also apologised to the fans for their sorry campaign which has seen them relegated back to League Two.

Simpson was quick to reassure the club’s faithful supporters that he will work tirelessly to ensure the club get recruitment right heading into next season.

He said: “I think that whole game shows exactly where we are as a group and that’s a long way off where we need to be.

“The goals are just shocking goals.

“But, the thing I’m thinking is that the supporters are sick of hearing me talking about performances and lack of performances and individual mistakes.

“The one thing that’s in my head is I want to thank the supporters.

“At the end of the game, it would have been very easy to get a load of abuse off them.

“The truth is we probably didn’t deserve it but they have stuck with us through a horrendous season.

“I’m as disappointed as they are with how the season has turned out.

“The one thing I’m focused on is making sure me and the recruitment team do our job to make sure they get something better next season.”
