Goalkeeper Sam Slocombe and Bright Osayi-Samuel have both given their thoughts following the weekends Play Off promotion success over Exeter City.

Meeting them in the League Two Play Off Final showpiece on Sunday at Wembley Stadium, goals from Brad Potts and Mark Cullen gave us the tough two one victory and Slocombe post game was full of praise for his team mates and the gaffer, Gary Bowyer.

Speaking to the Official Site in his post game interviews a delighted stopper explained.

‘I`m feeling relieved to be honest. Going through the play-offs is the best way to go up and to go up at the first time of asking is a great achievement. Credit to the lads because they were fantastic. During the last five minutes they were probably dead on their feet but they were determined to get through it.’

As for Bowyer, he added.

‘A lot of credit has got to be given to the gaffer for the recruitment that he has done. He`s brought together a fantastic squad that has experienced this kind of situation before and I think that really told.’

As for youngster Osayi-Samuel, he was more than soaking in the Wembley atmosphere as we took the win.

‘I feel ecstatic to have won at my first time at Wembley. Words can`t describe this great feeling. Not many people get to play at Wembley in their careers, so I`m very grateful to have done so.’

The 19 year old went on to say.

‘I`ve learnt a lot in my last three years here. There`s been ups and downs during that time but this is definitely one of the best moments in my football career. All the coaches that I`ve been with from the youth team to now have all improved me little by little and I want to thank them all.’

Coming on during the first half as Tom Aldred’s replacement, he ended by explaining.

‘When I was on the bench I was already ready to come on if I was chosen. In my head I said that this is a normal game and I put in a good shift. I want to keep pushing on next season, train hard, and hopefully win more things with this club.’
