Wycombe Wanderers skipper Adam El-Abd explained that he will look back over this season with pride after the Chairboys pretty much assured themselves of a place in League One next season.

El-Abd has been one of Wycombe's best players in recent weeks, starring in the two crucial wins at Southend and at home to Walsall recently.

The former Brighton man hopes the players and fans can enjoy what should be a wonderful occasion on Saturday at home to Fleetwood.

He said: "It is mission accomplished.

"The aim was to survive and we have done. Although it was a disappointing second half of the season, I think the lads have shown tremendous character and togetherness through the tough times and we managed to get enough wins to stay in the league.

"We achieved our aim and hopefully we can end on a good note on Saturday."

Looking back, El-Abd felt the 2-0 win at Roots Hall over Southend United was absolutely vital to ensure Wanderers stayed up this season.

He added: "That was huge.

"It was a huge step because the outlook would have been a lot different had we have lost that game.

"I think we would have been in the relegation zone potentially, or a point outside.

"It certainly eased the pressure because it gave us a four point gap with a better goal difference.

"We went into the Rochdale game and played well. They were fortunate with their chance and won the game but because we won the Southend game it ensured we weren't under as much pressure for the Walsall game."

With just that one game remaining, El-Abd admitted he was looking forward to a rest before another crack at League One next term.

He said: "I enjoy the first few weeks off and they I enjoy the holidays and then preparing for pre-season where you get in the gym yourself and prepare for the season coming about.

"The ball comes out on the beach and two touch with your mates and I am looking forward to a nice holiday and getting back to it next season."
