Reliable midfielder Mark Bentley admitted he had mixed emotions after being an unused substitute at Wembley.
The 31-year-old, who has also operated at centre-back this season, was delighted to win promotion but disappointed not to get on during the play-off final victory.
"There’s a bit of me that has mixed emotions having been part of it for so long and then to miss out at the final hurdle," he admitted.
"It’s a team effort and I’ve been a major part of it throughout the season. I’ve got to look at it like that.
"I know that I’ve contributed and I’m pleased that we’re in League 1. We can look forward to going to Norwich, Charlton and Leeds, which is fantastic, even though we got relegated there.
"If the gaffer keeps the side together and adds a bit of quality then there’s no reason why we shouldn’t do well."
