The 3-0 win saw Wanderers reach 103 points - beating the previous best of 101 that was set by Charlton during the 2011-12 campaign.

First-half goals from skipper Sam Ricketts and Michael Jacobs and a 57th-minute strike from Nouha Dicko earned a comfortable success, and Jackett said: "It tops off a great season.

"We are delighted to get the record of 103 points - which is some achievement in the third tier of English football.

"We have won 17 of the last 21 games when you really do need it at the business end of the season. So that is a fantastic achievement and credit to the players. They are the ones who have done that in a difficult time, if you like coming out of last year.

"This is the best day and best season of my career and I am optimistic about the future. Now what we want to do is try and build on this season and it be the the first good season of a good era for the club.

"If we can go into the Championship, not underestimating the size of the the task, but also very confident then we can build on this season - which has been excellent. Hopefully this is a stepping stone to where we want to be.

"We should have confidence going forward and try to build on what has been an excellent first season for us.

"For us now, we can take this momentum into next season and build on this so instead of it just being an excellent season, which it has been, hopefully we can start a good era and write our own little piece of history in the chapter of a fantastic club."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
