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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
