The former Watford boss praised his players for getting to the final on May 18, but stressed their mission is not yet complete.

Boothroyd said: "Getting to Wembley is an achievement but it's only an achievement if you can finish the job off.

"There are two things that are going to happen next Saturday, there is going to be an occasion and there is going to be a game and we've got to make sure that we play the game."
