    Well, that just about wraps up our coverage for the evening.

    A memorable evening for Wycombe as they finally reach English football's second tier.

    An evening to forget for Oxford, who came so close to forcing extra-time at Wembley.

    The fun continues in the English Football League tomorrow as we return to Championship action at both the top and bottom of the table. We'll be bringing you all the latest from Tuesday's seven fixtures - including promotion rivals West Brom and Fulham going head-to-head at The Hawthorns - from early evening.

    For now, thank you for joining us.

  3. 'We did it'

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    For all Oxford's disappointment, this is what being a Championship club means to Wycombe Wanderers.

    Remember, this is a club that had only ever been in non-league until the mid-1990s.

  4. 'One of the lowest moments of my career'

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    Oxford boss Karl Robinson is dejected

    Oxford United manager Karl Robinson:

    "We probed and pushed for 95% of the game, but didn't take full advantage.

    "The game sometimes isn't fair as all the things that were out of our control today, didn't fall for us.

    "Take nothing away from Wycombe, they full deserve the victory and to go up.

    "But it's two errors from us that will cause us nightmares for weeks to come. The penalty incident almost seemed to happen in slow motion from where I was stood.

    "Right now, it feels like one of the lowest moments in my career."

  5. Post update

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    Seeing the joy on the face of Adebayo Akinfenwa's face in the aftermath of their win tonight is contagious, I tell ya.

    It's certainly put a smile on my face seeing what this means to him and the bond he has with the club.

  6. Post update

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    We'll be hearing from Oxford boss Karl Robinson soon following what must feel like an agonising defeat for his side this evening.

  7. 'Today is for the fans at home'

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    Gareth Ainsworth

    Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told Sky Sports:

    "It was amazing. We can't afford the best footballing players but heart and determination - that was a Wycombe performance.

    "They ground it out and I can't believe that we're a Championship club.

    "We had nine players turn up on the first day of pre-season and two of them were trialists. Today is for all the fans watching at home."

  8. 'I was lucky and blessed to find this club'

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    Adebayo Akinfenwa celebrates

    Wycombe striker Adebayo Akinfenwa told Sky Sports:

    "First and foremost I want to thank God because today he made the impossible possible.

    "I was lucky and blessed to find players and a manager who believe in me."

  9. Get Involved


    Andy King: Gutted. We will be back. Off to work.

    Shrochis: Devastated! Defenders have to keep it simple...and one mistake was enough to sink us. Well done to Wycombe.. hope they do well next year. Off to drown sorrows (in the next room)...

    Bill Hader Ginsburg: QPR fan here, couldn’t happen to a nicer man/manager.

    Graham Gee: I'm pleased for Wycombe, but has a team ever finished a season with a goal difference of just +5 - and been promoted ??!!

    Huddersfield were promoted to the Premier League through the Championship play-offs in 2017 with a goal difference of -2!

  10. Post update

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    Disappointment for Oxford, who fought to the very end, and never sat back after falling behind twice.

    It wasn't their night tonight. But they will surely be back for another crack next season.

    Disappointment for Oxford
  11. 'We will enjoy every minute next season'

    FT: Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    Joe Jacobson

    Wycombe goalscorer Joe Jacobson tells Sky Sports:

    "It's unbelievable, I was thinking don't miss the penalty, our goalkeeping coach said just go down the middle and I trusted him. Thankfully it went in.

    "This club has never been here before, every game will be a cup final next season and we will enjoy every minute of it."

    Wycombe celebrate

    Scenes of delight and delirium both on and off the pitch as the final whistle went for those with an affiliation towards Wycombe.

    Former Chairboys player-turned-pundit Marcus Bean let out several loud screams of joy over the microphone while broadcaster Bill Turnbull, who was leading a lot of those chants towards the end, also stood arms aloft.

    On the pitch, you could hear Adebayo Akinfenwa let out a loud yelp all across the evening air.

    Gareth Ainsworth celebrates

    Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth looks like a man who's aged about 10 years in the course of that match. Credit to him. What a season they've had.

    Meanwhile, Adebayo Akinfenwa is overcome with emotion. Another promotion to his collection.


    Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    They've done it! Wycombe are up! They will be playing Championship football next season.

    For the first time in their history, Wycombe are a second tier club. A valiant effort from Oxford, but Gareth Ainsworth's side have edged them to victory.

    And all this having moved up into the play-offs following the suspension of the League One season. What a story.

    Wycombe are promoted
  16. Post update

    Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    A succession of balls head towards the Wycombe box. A succession of clearances are made.

    Oxford can't find a way through. Wycombe are so close.

    A late change for Wycombe now as Fred Onyadinma comes off for Nick Freeman.

    Great surname, Nick.

    Can you hold on Wycombe fans?

    Oxford 1-2 Wycombe

    Matty Taylor is in an enormous amount of space in the Wycombe box and he waits for Mark Sykes' cross but Wycombe keeper Ryan Allsop is on hand to collect.

    Another chance goes begging.
