Striker Lee Novak rescued Town with a late goal, their first in 359 minutes of football, and after losing four of their previous five matches Grayson's side limped into the play-offs as Scunthorpe hit the woodwork three times.

Grayson said: "It doesn't matter what happens before, it's what you do in the play-offs themselves that counts.

"I've been involved in teams that have finished third, fourth, fifth and sixth as a player and a manager with different outcomes.

"There's no right or wrong way to get there and once there it's a lottery. Ultimately it's how you end up that matters."

Grayson added: "It's been a long season for them physically and mentally and the unbeaten run probably took a lot out of them mentally. They reached the play-off final last year and didn't get too much time off in the summer. We need to get a bit of spark back."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
