Alan Hardy has given his thoughts on the upcoming League Two playoffs, which will see Notts County three games and a trip to Wembley away from promotion.
The Magpies play their last game of the regular season today, hosting already-promoted Luton Town for the chance to finish as high in the fourth-to-seventh mini-table as possible.
"Ever since we cemented our place in the play-offs, the excitement which comes attached with such an achievement has been entirely understandable," Hardy wrote in the Nottingham Post.
"You can’t blame anybody for getting carried away about dreaming of playing at Wembley, where you hope all the hard work over the course of the season is rewarded with promotion.
"We still don’t know who we’re going to play in the semi-finals and that will only be determined once we play our final game of the regular season against Luton this weekend.
"Victory in front of a bumper crowd at Meadow Lane would give us an incredible lift going into the play-offs but it will be tough because Luton are arguably the most entertaining team in the division.
"But despite losing to Grimsby, I am sure we will go out there full of confidence given how good training has been this week.
"I suspect the manager will make a few changes in what I am sure will be a very open and entertaining game of football.
"It wouldn’t surprise me if it finished 5-5 but what we desire most is a result and performance that gives us momentum going into the play-offs.
"Anything can happen in those games and I maintain that what has happened in the previous nine months counts for nothing.
"The players and manager have done a fantastic job this season. I’ve enjoyed it and I am sure the fans have too.
"All we need is one final push to get us over the line, making the tantalising prospect of a day out at Wembley a wonderful reality."
