Kashket: Chairboys got a "brilliant chance" of promotion in 2017/18

8 May 2017

Scott Kashket reflected on his first season at the club, in which he scored 16 goals in 29 appearances for Wycombe.

Despite missing the majority of the final third of the season through injury, the striker finished the campaign boasting an impressive striking record of one goal every 1.8 games he has featured in.

Kashket added another to his tally on Saturday in the 1-0 victory over Cambridge United, but sadly it was not enough to guarantee a play-off spot with other results going against Wanderers.

The frontman who scored his first Wycombe goal with his head at the weekend, admitted it was just not Wycombe's time this season, but after a summer of rest and recuperation, he and the team will be fighting to compete at the very top of the division come August.

"It wasn't meant to be at the end of the day," he said speaking after the U's victory.

"The team was absolutely brilliant today. We got it down and passed it and it was definitely one of the best performances of the season so hopefully next season we can play a bit more like how we did today.

"I think we've got a brilliant chance of going up next season, hopefully automatically.

"There is work to be done in the off-season, getting fit, sorting out my injury and get back.

"It's been very frustrating (injury wise) and I maybe put it down to not really having a pre-season this year and coming in and playing more than what I expected and just as I got on a good run I went down with injury.

"I tried to play with it and it got a bit worse, and then when I came back it flared up a bit again but now I need to get a bit of rest now the season has finished."

The additions of Kashket and Adebayo Akinfenwa have proved a masterstroke by Gareth Ainsworth with the pair getting over a third of the Chairboys 58 league goals between them.

After firmly hitting the ground running after joining from Leyton Orient in August, Kashket quickly endeared himself to Wanderers fans, and the striker wanted to say thanks to them for all their support in 2016/17 whilst also drawing upon some of his own special moments in a memorable season at Adams Park.

"It's absolutely brilliant when you come to a new club and the fans buy into you straight away because it gives you a lot of confidence," he added.

"When you hear your name being sung it is absolutely brilliant so I want to say thank you to them as well.

"The favourite moment for me was scoring against my old club and then my first hat-trick (vs Chesterfield) which is something you'll never forget."
