IF HUDDERSFIELD Town can go on and win at Wembley it will be the perfect end to a frustrating season for popular loan man Damien Johnson.
The influential 33-year-old midfielder played just one match between early December and March because of injury as Town challenged at the top of the League I table.
He’s been back, however, to help Town finish the season proper and steer the club past MK Dons into a Wembley play-off final against Sheffield United – and he’s now determined to finish the job by earning a place in the Championship.
“I love playing for this club and I’ve been very frustrated by the injuries,” said Johnson, the on-loan Plymouth player whose experience was key in both legs against MK Dons.
“The club have always looked after me very well and I’ve always felt a part of the club, even when I wasn’t playing.
“So everything taken into consideration, it’s great to help them into a Wembley final and it will be a great day out for everyone.
“It’s fantastic for the players and staff but also for our supporters, who have been absolutely brilliant.
“There were 4,000 of them down at stadium:mk for the first leg on Saturday and it felt like we were playing at home.
