Aiden O’Brien has said that Millwall will be more than fired up for Bradford City in the Wembley based Play Off Final because nobody wants to feel like they did last season where we failed in our promotion bid.

Speaking to the official site in his own midweek interview, O’Brien said the players would be doing ‘everything possible’ to avoid a sense of deja vu given what happened at the end of last campaign.

‘It was a very, very tough way to end the season last year. We came so close to promotion but fell in the Play-Off Final. It broke all of our hearts and it probably broke all of the fans’ hearts too. Now we are going back to Wembley to face Bradford and we’re determined not to let it happen again. It’s a massive day. Only one team wins, only one team goes up and we are prepared to do everything we need to to make sure it’s our year.’

With almost a fortnight to prepare ahead of the game, the 23 year old went on to say that whilst it gives the players plenty of time to rest and plan, ideally he wouldn’t want such a lengthy gap as the players are relishing the opportunity.

‘Everyone has a few days off to clear their heads. I’m going to go and chill at home with family and friends and take a step back for a moment. We’ve had three really intense games in such a short space of time and once we’ve had a second to breathe we will prepare for Bradford. Once the match comes around we will all be switched on. Everyone knows their job and if we perform like we have been then I know that it will be us celebrating at the end of 90 minutes.’
