John Ryan. Today is going to be our day

Last season Doncaster Rovers beat Bristol Rovers at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff to win the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. So many of the players have exoerience of playing in front of a big crowd. Now at Wembley can Sean O'Driscoll's team deliver Ryan's dream?

The Chairman believes it's his destiny to win today.

"It's the biggest game in our history. Leeds are the favourites and will have a lot more fans there than us, but we will do it," said Ryan.

"I think we've got the team and the confidence to win. Most of our team played before 60,000 fans at the Millennium Stadium last season in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final and won't be fazed.

"I think the best way to get promoted is via the play-offs and winning at Wembley. The club has never been there in its 139-year history and we can't wait. It is 50 years since we played in the second tier of English football, just like it was 50 years since the Munich air crash and Manchester United go and win the Champions League.

"It's like destiny is on our side. It's like the closing of a circle and I think we can do it. We couldn't have wished for better opposition."
