The dream of achieving a place in the playoffs has died, but there is still plenty to celebrate at the end of another eventful season for the Chairboys.

With two games left to play – home to Cheltenham Town on Saturday, April 29, then away to Portsmouth a week later – Wanderers are on course for one of their highest-ever finishes since joining the EFL 30 years ago.

There was an inevitable sense of disappointment after last week’s home defeat by Lincoln City meant they could no longer finish in the top six, but this has been another campaign in which Wycombe have overcome the odds.

I wrote at the beginning of the season that to qualify again for the play-offs they would have to compete with some of the biggest clubs outside the Premier League and that has proved to be the case.

No fewer than eight clubs in League One have enjoyed time in the top division of English football, and it is no surprise to find Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley, Bolton Wanderers, and Derby County leading the charge for promotion.

Given the history, levels of support, and financial power of these clubs, Wycombe can be proud that they were still in contention for a playoff place with three games to go, especially after suffering so many setbacks.

They started the season without a recognised senior goalkeeper, lost several key players for lengthy periods due to injuries, saw the departure of the most successful manager in their history at a vital stage, and replaced him with a young coach who admits he is still learning the job.

It is remarkable they have done so well despite these problems, and with the core of the team still in place for next season the future is bright.

Hopefully, Wanderers will give their supporters more to cheer when they face Cheltenham in their final home game of the season.

If previous fixtures between the clubs are anything to go by, it certainly promises to be an entertaining finale.
