Experienced centre-half Craig will make his third trip to the national stadium next weekend when the Bees take on Yeovil in the League One play-off final.

Craig, who has been on both winning and losing sides with Millwall, said: "Wembley's a place for winners, you don't want to lose there because it's not a nice feeling.

"I've been a winner and a loser. When you win there's nothing better than walking up those steps, but losing was the sorest moment of my career. I don't want a repeat of that."

Even Millwall's victory, over Swindon in the League One play-off final in 2010, was a bittersweet experience for Craig.

He added: "I broke my metatarsal last time. I couldn't have champagne afterwards because I had to have an operation!

"But it's long forgotten now and hopefully it will be a different outcome.

"It will be a tough game. Yeovil have already beaten us twice this season. They'll give us a run for our money."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
