WALSALL have never played at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium, but de­fender Andy Tay­lor is con­fi­dent he can make amends for his last ap­pear­ance at the na­tional sta­dium by help­ing the Sad­dlers seize a rare op­por­tu­nity this sea­son.

The left-back, 28, came on for Sh­effield United after 120 min­utes of the 2012 League One play-off fi­nal against Hud­der­s­field, only to miss his spot-kick as the Blades lost 8-7 on penal­ties.

Yet vic­tory over Tran­mere in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy area semi-fi­nal on Tues­day would put Walsall just two games away from a his­toric fix­ture at the home of foot­ball .

“It’s a chance to play at Wem­b­ley and in your ca­reer you don’t get many chances to do that,” he said. “Win one game against Tran­mere and all of a sud­den you’re in the area fi­nal. If you don’t take it se­ri­ously, then you should do – and we are.”
