Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final: Harris, McCall, Williams, McArdle

19 May 2017

Bradford City and Millwall meet at Wembley for the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final, and here's what the managers and players have had to say in the build-up.

You can watch the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final on Saturday 20th May live on Sky Sports, with kick-off at 3pm.

Neil Harris – Millwall manager:

“The heartache last year was immense [defeat to Barnsley in the final]. I've used it in various team talks and team meetings to galvanise the group and I'm sure it will appear in conversations before kick-off on Saturday.

“We'll get the players in the right frame of mind, but it's down to them to perform. I want them to walk off the pitch and say they could not have done any more. We're looking forward to the occasion.”

Stuart McCall – Bradford City manager

"The job now is to relish this occasion and be the very best we can be. I am really confident that the lads are mentally and physically ready for this.

“Training has been really sharp this week. As a group of staff, as long as we give the players all the knowledge and planning they need, then we believe in them to go and express themselves.

"We feel we have a lot of quick and technical players who will relish playing on the Wembley surface. We just can't wait to get out there now - all I want is for the players to do themselves justice. I wan them to do themselves proud, give it their all, and hopefully come off the pitch as a winner.”

Shaun Williams – Millwall midfielder:

"We were defeated in the Final last year and we know what it's like to play at Wembley. I see that as an advantage and we will use that experience on Saturday.

"I think the club deserves and belongs to be in the Championship. Everything about Millwall, the fanbase and the facilities are set up for being in a higher division.”

Rory McArdle – Bradford City defender:

"The progress the club have made has been exceptional. When I came to the club five years ago with the likes of James Meredith and Stephen Darby we had the aim of getting promoted under Phil Parkinson and that’s what we managed to do.

“On and off the field we dealt with the step up to League One and we’ve made real progress. We reached the play-offs last season and we’ve done so again this season. Hopefully we can have a better crack at it than we did last season [semi-final loss to Millwall] and go one better and earn promotion."
