WY­COMBE CLOSING IN ON PRO­MO­TION

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

AS the sea­son ticks into spring the only thing that mat­ters when you’re bat­tling at ei­ther end of the ta­ble is the re­sult.

This was third host­ing sec­ond but Shrews­bury are hit­ting a rocky patch at the wrong time and Wy­combe saw the op­por­tu­nity to pounce.

In fact, Sam Wood did just that af­ter just 40 sec­onds as the hosts edged them­selves closer to what seemed a near im­pos­si­ble pro­mo­tion at the start of the sea­son.

Un­beaten in five com­pares to just one win in as many games for the Shrews who were sec­ond best through­out, muster- ing only half chances all af­ter­noon at Adams Park.

For Wy­combe, con­sis­tency is king and con­sis­tency breeds re­sults.

This will be 27 weeks in­side the au­to­matic pro­mo­tion places for Gareth Ainsworth’s men and af­ter this lat­est re­sult it would take a brave man to bet against them stay­ing there and avoid­ing the drama of the dreaded play-offs.

If they see it through, this will be an achieve­ment for the ages.
