The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

THAT WAS absolutely cruel and I’m just gut­ted for ev­ery­body in­volved with the club that we will be back in League One in Au­gust.

I al­ways knew it would come down to the last day but to play the way we did and score two su­perb goals and still lose and go down is hor­ri­ble. I’m in­cred­i­bly proud of the play­ers though for the way they’ve come back from a dread­ful start to take it as far as we did.

They’ve played for the shirt and pro­duced some of the best football I’ve seen at Lon­don Road.

My big fear now is that how many of this squad will be around to get us back up. The likes of Dwight Gayle have been mag­nif­i­cent and the vul­tures won’t waste time in com­ing in for him.

Our teamsheet on the first day of the sea­son will cer­tainly be dif­fer­ent to the one at Palace. But we’ve gone down and come­back be­fore – let’s do it again.
