Just like the club he leads, Rotherham United captain Craig Morgan is seeking a second back-to-back promotion and says that this one would be the greater achievement if they can overcome Leyton Orient in Sunday’s Play-off Final.

Morgan, 28, was in the Peterborough United side which went up from League Two in 2008 and then up from League One in 2009, on both occasions doing so by the automatic route.

“If we can do it here then I think it would be a better achievement than at Peterborough because this one isn’t expected,” said Craig.

“No one fancied us when we came up but we believed we were able to give anyone a game when we got into this division and, as the season has unfolded, we felt we could make the Play-offs.”

It will be his first appearance at Wembley and says that leading the team out will be “the best”.

He added: “As a player you can only imagine player there and in a long career, when you go through a lot, then to do so for the first time makes this more special. I’ll appreciate it and make the most of it.”

But he warned they will be up against a very good side adding: “We have great respect for Orient, they are well organised and we had two good, tight games against them. We’re relaxed and looking forward to it.”
