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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
