NIKKI Bull said he has been waiting seven years to get promotion revenge over Shrewsbury Town.
The Wanderers goalkeeper was between the sticks for Aldershot as the Shrews beat them 3-0 in a penalty shoot-out in the Conference play-off final at the Britannia Stadium in 2004.
The 29-year-old went on to clinch promotion with the Shots four years later and helped Wycombe pip the Shrews to automatic promotion to League One with Wanderers.
Asked to sum up his emotions he said: "Relief, delight, joy and pleased for everyone connected with the club. Seven years ago, Shrewsbury beat me in a play-off final on penalties and broke my heart.
"I thought that would be my last route into the Football League and it has taken seven years to get revenge.
"The icing on the cake would be them losing in the final on penalties."
Wanderers continue to get little credit for their remarkable campaign with the BBC Football League Show preferring to focus on the infamous 'phantom goal' at Shrewsbury in March.
But Bull said: "Shrewsbury still had half an hour to come back. It wasn't like it was an injury time goal."
