It felt like Wycombe’s season was over when the referee blew the final whistle at Wembley a week ago, but boss Matt Bloomfield insists his players will continue to ‘give everything’ in their five remaining games.

The Bristol Street Motors Final ended in disappointment tinged with pride as the Chairboys lost to a fluke goal against old foes Peterborough United.

Wanderers went toe-to-toe against a team chasing promotion to the Championship and were moments away from forcing extra time.

The League One table shows Wycombe are all but mathematically safe from the threat of relegation, but Bloomfield’s target is to finish as high as they can to round off a season of contrasting fortunes.

They face four away games in the space of eleven days before bringing down the curtain on the 2023/24 campaign with a home game against Charlton Athletic.

The final furlong of Bloomfield’s first full season holding the reins begins at Shrewsbury Town’s Croud Meadow stadium on Saturday, April 13.

The home side will be fully motivated as they are not yet clear of danger and after playing Wycombe they face difficult away games at Bolton Wanderers and Charlton.

Shrewsbury are a well-established League One outfit but they have finished in the top half only once in the last eight seasons, further evidence of the outstanding achievements of a similarly sized club like Wycombe in reaching two play-off finals and spending a season in the Championship in just half that time.

Shrewsbury won 1-0 in the reverse fixture at Adams Park earlier in the campaign and they were victorious by the same scoreline when the Chairboys visited Shropshire last season.

However, Wanderers have a superior record against Saturday’s opponents over the three decades they have faced each other in league games. Wycombe have won eleven times to Shrewsbury’s five with fourteen games ending in a draw.

With upcoming trips to Port Vale, Cambridge and the northerly outpost of Carlisle, Wanderers will have travelled around 1,500 miles before they bring down the curtain on another season with their final home game against Charlton on the final Saturday of the month.
