PETER JACKSON spoke today of his disappointment that Town's play-off hopes are over but vowed: "We'll be back!"
The Galpharm manager was at the Racecourse Ground last night to see Wrexham relegated in a 2-1 home defeat by Brentford.
A stoppage-time goal by Scott Fitzgerald sealed the Welshmen's fate, put the Bees into the post- season knockout and left Town in the cold.
Jackson's side cannot now catch either Hartlepool or Bournemouth because they play each other on Saturday while Town tackle Denis Smith's side.
"It's a big disappointment for everybody that we haven't been able to take it to the last game, but to get this far with a chance has been a magnificent achievement," said Jackson today.
"While last night was a sickener, I think the lads deserve a lot of credit for being in play-off contention to the final week of the season as a newly-promoted club, and the experience we have gained will serve us well.
"All we can do now is look to finish the season well and, if we win on Saturday we will have equalled the club's best ever finish, which would be a nice record to have.
"It's also important to win because it's our last match, we've got a lot of fans going over there to support us and we don't want to finish on a low note.
"A win will give us something positive to reflect on through the summer, the lads can have a good close-season break and then we can come back for the start of a new season refreshed and looking to do ever better. We will be back!"
Town, who are ninth, three points off the top six, have received extra tickets for Saturday's match because of increased demand from supporters.
