Wembley appearance would be a dream come true for Preston's Daniel Johnson

24 May 2015

Daniel Johnson says it will be a ‘dream come true’ should he have the opportunity to represent Preston North End at Wembley.

The Lilywhites take on Swindon Town in Sunday’s Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off Final and Johnson is desperate to play a part in the fixture.

“It’s every kids dream to play at Wembley,” the Jamaican-born midfielder said to the club’s official site. “If I get picked on the day to play it will be a dream come true for me.

“But there’s spots up for grabs all over that 11. We come in everyday and work hard and nobody ever takes their place for granted. The gaffer the 11 picks he believes is going to get the job done.”

Johnson only joined Preston in January from Aston Villa, but he has already made a big impact at Deepdale.

The 22-year-old’s energy levels are a key part of Preston’s tactic and he has a return of eight goals in 23 appearances prior to the Wembley final against Swindon, which he is confident of winning.

“We can only play against what we play on the day no matter what Swindon team is out there, but I believe we’ve got a squad as good if not better than them.

“Definitely they’re going to be tough opponents - we know that, but we’re aiming to be just as tough for them."
