Congratulations to Luton Town and Barnsley on winning promotion to The Championship. Defeats for Sunderland (2-1 at Fleetwood) and Portsmouth (3-2 at home to Peterborough) last night mean that both sides will have to settle for a play-off spot. Peterborough’s win means they could still pip Doncaster to the final play-off place.

We will have fans in two different stands at Bradford. The initial allocation in the Midland Road stand down the side appears to have been sold, and supporters are now receiving tickets for the two-tier TL Dallas stand behind the goal, which we have not been in since an old Nationwide Division One game in 2001 (drew 3-3).

The extra allocation of tickets for Bradford are now on sale. The club is also still taking bookings for the official supporters coach, having already filled four coaches. More information is on the official web site.

Will Nightingale has rallied: “Let’s go and finish the job at Bradford.” He is also yet to sign a new contract. Those two sentences are not necessarily connected, however. The full interview is available on the OS.

Bradford have given us another 500 tickets for Saturday. We have sold 1,000 already. For more information and to purchase, visit the official club web site.

Shrewsbury’s draw at Coventry yesterday has confirmed their survival. Three from Wycombe, Southend, Plymouth, Walsall, Scunthorpe, and ourselves will go down on Saturday. Wycombe are very long shots given goal difference, so realistically it is three from five.

Yesterday’s win means we are out of the relegation zone for the first time in 189 days. We have lost just once in our last 11 games, and are two points clear of the bottom four. Wycombe are a point above us and could still be relegated, but it would take a huge swing in goal difference for that to happen.

Wally Downes said victory over Wycombe was down to our defending. Talking on iFollow, he said: “The key to the victory was being able to defend when we had to. We knew in the second-half with Bayo up front that they would be hitting long balls and we would have to deal with it. I felt that we dealt with it very well.”

Gareth Ainsworth believes Wally Downes has “turned Wimbledon around”. Talking to Wycombe’s official web site, the Chairboys manager said: “Wally’s done a fantastic job. They looked dead and buried at one stage, but make no mistake about it – we’ll need to be at our best, be competitive, and make sure we stay in the game at all times to get anything from it (tomorrow’s game).”

Joe Pigott says the squad is confident about getting two wins from the last two games. Speaking to iFollow about tomorrow’s game with Wycombe, he said: “It would be another step closer to the points tally that we need. It’s absolutely huge. Results at home in the last few weeks have been pretty frustrating, taking the lead and conceding equalisers. We will be looking to win.”
