Manager Gareth Taylor-

“I think we have shown amazing concentration and desire to get to this point so that’s a massive well done to the players. We are excited and looking forward to it.

“This is where we wanted to get to in early February when we beat Arsenal and came back to the City Football Academy and beat United on the Friday.

“That gave us hope and an opportunity that if we looked after our own end, it would be in our hands. To be there in this moment is fantastic and what an opportunity.

“It is a big moment. These are the reasons why you coach and why you want to be a manager – for moments like this.
