We're on our way to Wemb(er)ley - again!

Wow - two years in a row we have reached the Championship Play-off final. Despite trailing the first leg 0-1 and going another goal behind after 5 minutes, we ran out worthy winners 3-1 to take the tie 3-2 on aggregate. We pushed forward trying to get an early goal but by committing all 10 outfield players to a corner they win the ball and break quickly from the half-way line and with no defenders and only Raya to beat, they go one-nil up and two-nil on aggregate. A handball sees Toney equalise with a penalty in the 16th minute but then in the 28th minute the game changes as ex-Bee Mepham brings down Mbeumo and is sent-off. They hang-on until half-time but in the 50th minute Janelt puts us in front and Forss gets the tie winning goal in the 81st minute. The final is on Saturday 29th May against Swansea City.
