YOU have to feel for Matt Smith. He scored five goals across a two-legged semi to get Bris­tol City to Wem­b­ley but can’t play in the fi­nal be­cause his loan from Ful­ham will have ex­pired. It’s not ev­ery day that the Wem­b­ley door opens for you and he must be as gut­ted for him­self as he will be de­lighted for his team-mates.

The bonus for him is that he has cre­ated a le­gacy and he will go on thriv­ing at a club that has a Wem­b­ley date to fuel their al­ready well-driven sea­son.
