Ex-Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Tommy Miller is relishing the prospect of facing Sheffield United in the League One play-off final.

The 33-year-old started both legs of Huddersfield Town’s 3-2 triumph over MK Dons in the semi-finals of the end-of-season competition to set up an all-Yorkshire showdown at Wembley a week on Saturday.

Miller, released by the Owls last summer, has made 32 appearances at Huddersfield and is expected to feature alongside Damien Johnson at the national stadium.

“I have followed both Sheffield club’s results closely this season,” he told The Star. “I was delighted to see Wednesday go up automatically.

“United have been up their all year and just faded away towards the end.

“United are a massive club and are going to bring a great following to Wembley but so will we. It is set up for a fantastic final and one that we are all looking forward to.”

Miller hopes it is fifth time lucky in the play-offs. He has lost four times at the last-four stage and joked: “It is nice to finally get through! I have never been to the new Wembley before. This will be the highlight of my career.”
