Millers goalkeeper Adam Collin is set for a third Wembley appearance in four years this weekend.

He already has one win and one defeat under his belt from his time at Carlisle United in two Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Finals.

The low came against Southampton with a 4-1 defeat in the 2010 final but the following year he kept a clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Brentford.

“It’s really special and a great honour to play at Wembley but we are going there to win a game and get promoted,” said Collin.

“Ever since I walked through the door at Rotherham, it has been about promotion and there is so much ambition at the club, it’s frightening - from the chairman to the manager to the players and supporters.

“We have built a team for promotion and we hope we can achieve it.

The 29-year-old is on the brink of achieving his ambition of playing in the Championship just 12 months after being released by Carlisle in a big cost-cutting exercise which contributed greatly to their relegation to League Two this season.

“Ever since I joined Carlisle, I’ve wanted to play at the highest level I could. If we get into the Championship, it would be great, and it’s the reason why I joined Rotherham.

“I had other opportunities elsewhere, but I wanted to stay in English football and push for promotion to the Championship. What has happened at Rotherham is a great story after the way the club has rebuilt itself.”
