Corberan’s troops face off against Southampton this evening in the Championship play-off semi-final second leg with the score locked at 0-0.

The winner heads to Wembley on May 26 to play for Premier League promotion.

“I want to be there 100 per cent, I can tell you, I enjoyed that (Huddersfield final) game a lot. I enjoyed preparing that game a lot,” Corberan said. “I enjoyed to feel Wembley, feel how big it is and the feeling you can have there.
