WEMBLEY 10: STFC vs. MILLWALL

Here we go - The finale of the League One season. Norwich and Leeds are up while Gillingham, Wycombe, Stockport and Southend have fallen to League 2. Most teams are long into their Summer holidays but tomorrow decides the final unfinished piece a business, a little matter of the L1 Play-Off Final... Swindon Town vs. Millwall.

Vital Quotes:

DANNY WILSON on the Millwall game: Talking on the Official Swindon Town website...

'Getting to the final is a great achievement it itself, but now we've there we want to perform well and win the game.

'However low key you try to spin it, it is a massive game for us, and we will only remember properly if we win.'

'I am hugely confident that they will have no problem with the atmosphere, and I think they'll embrace it.'

'You can't explain the feeling you get when you walk out into the stadium - it's what you dream of as a little boy, and I'm sure the players will thrive on that.'

MILLWALL Team News:

Millwall are a near full strength with only the popular Irishman Alan Dunne likely to miss out on a starting place due to an injury he suffered in April.

Former Town defender Jack Smith is likely to start while fellow Town alumni Gary Alexander will probably sit on the bench as Kenny Jackett currently prefers the prolific Steven Morison and Millwall legend Neil Harris.

Lions side that beat Huddersfield 2-0 last week

XI: Forde, Robinson, Smith, Craig, Barron, Ward, Trotter, Abdou, Schofield, Harris (Alexander 89') Morison.

SNU: Frampton, Sullivan, Batt, Fuseini, Laird, Obika.

Player to watch: STEVEN MORISON

A fantastic debut season for the Lions. The former England C international's return to the football league has been a success after a slow start. However, he bagged 11 or his 20 league goals between early March and his brace against Swindon on the final day.

SWINDON TOWN Team News:

Captain Gordon Greer is suspended after receiving a straight red card at Charlton Athletic last week. Town will be led out by Jonathan Douglas instead. Big Lescinel Jean-Francois is likely to play the most important 90 minutes of his career by filling the void left by Greer.

Billy Paynter's hamstring injury is likely to be be sorted and therefore should be fit to start but Alan Sheehan might miss out with a groin problem.

This could be the final Swindon Town appearances for Danny Ward, Stephen Darby, Simon Ferry, Alan Sheehan, Frank Nouble, Billy Paynter, Craig Easton, Michael Timlin and Mark Marshall.

Town side that beat Charlton Athletic on penalties

XI: Lucas (Smith 5'), Cuthbert, Jean-Francois, Darby, Greer (S-O), Douglas, McGovern, Ferry (Amankwaah 72'), Ward, Paynter (O'Brien 64'), Austin.

SNU: Timlin, Easton, Pericard, Nouble.

Player to watch: DANNY WARD

Town's in form attacking player. He scored in Swindon's final four fixtures including against Millwall at the New Den and at the all-important goal at The Valley to take the game into Extra Time.

Ward will be desperate to leave Town for Bolton on a major high.

Match Facts & Stats

Well, it doesn't read that well for Swindon Town. In the two fixtures between Swindon Town and Millwall this season the Robins could only take one point from the Londoners.

At the County Ground an incident between Kevin Amankwaah and Neil Harris overshadowed a 1-1 draw.

Meanwhile, on the final day of the season Millwall beat Town 3-2 at the New Den.

Ref Watch:

Mr. Colin Webster (Tyne & Wear)

His first game of the season took place on September 29 at Burton Albion and their 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He hasn't officiated Millwall this season but took charge of Swindon's 1-0 win at Carlisle United on November 21. The day Charlie Austin made his full debut and scored his first goal after just 3 minutes.

Match Prediction:

Whether Swindon Town experience euphoric ecstacy of victory or the awful feeling of losers anguish, nobody can deny that this has been a remarkable season for Swindon when comparing it to last season or the last decade!

COME ON YOU REDS!

Having lost to you twice 1-0 I might be expected to pick you for the winners of this. Millwall I still feel did better against us as we played better especially up at theirs. two 1-1 draws. So yes I am going for the Lions but won't be sad if you get through. Good lw and have a good day.
