but we game.”

Wy­combe might have to face the play-offs with­out Matt In­gram, who went off in­jured dur­ing the fi­nal day win over Northamp­ton, hav­ing pre­vi­ously played in ev­ery game this sea­son.

Bean said: “For me, Matt’s the best keeper in the league, but Alex Lynch is a con­fi­dent young man. Like all keep­ers he’s got a bit of a screw loose, but he would be an able deputy.”

In­gram’s is one of a num­ber of in­juries that have plagued Wy­combe in re­cent weeks, with Bean him­self moved from his more familiar mid­field role to deputise for the crocked Sido Jom­bati at right-back.

He said: “I must ad­mit, it’s a ca­reer new for me. This was my third game there and I think I’ve done okay.

“I wouldn’t say I’m en­joy­ing it, but I will play wher­ever asked and do a job.

just play our own

“I don’t want to be la­belled as a full-back now though!”

Un­like team-mate Paul Hayes, who al­ready has two suc­cess­ful play-off cam­paigns un­der his belt, Bean has had mixed ex­pe­ri­ences with them in the past.

He added: “I went into League One with Black­pool.

“We had the mo­men­tum with us af­ter win­ning some­thing like 12 games in a row, so the be­lief was there, which is key.

“With QPR we lost to Cardiff, which was like a home game for them be­cause it was at the Mil­len­nium Sta­dium, and that played a mas­sive part.”

The first leg of the play-off semi fi­nal is away at Ply­mouth on Satur­day with Wan­der­ers en­joy­ing a home ad­van­tage for the sec­ond leg on Thurs­day May 14.
