Following two meetings today Oxford United can confirm that they will now take on Portsmouth in a Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off semi-final, with Wycombe Wanderers taking on Fleetwood Town in the other.
“We have never wavered in our belief that the season needed to end on the pitch and now we get a chance to finish all the hard work that we started back in July. Whatever happens we have had a season none of us is ever going to forget: there have been some amazing wins, two cup runs and to think that we finished the regular season with the drama of that win at Shrewsbury sums up the way our whole season has gone.“I am so proud of the players. There can’t have been many bigger underdogs to reach the play-offs at the start of the season and they have given absolutely everything for the club. We would have liked the chance to try and chase the top two, and obviously we feel for clubs like Tranmere who don’t get the opportunity to end their season on the pitch. But to actually end the season in third place in the table was a fantastic achievement and I think we go in to the next stage in good shape.“We’ve trained well over the last couple of days and now we have clarity on the way ahead of us and can take training to the next level as we prepare to play again.”
