DANNY DRINKWATER is desperate to end his season with Town as a Wembley winner.
The on-loan Manchester United midfielder was delighted to help Lee Clark’s side to Friday’s key 1-0 home League I win over Millwall.
And Saturday’s results added to his satisfaction, with Southampton the only side among Town’s rivals for a play-off berth to win and his parent club taking the Manchester derby honours.
Now Town, who occupy the final play-off place, head to basement side Stockport on Saturday knowing victory would give them a huge push towards a final top-six spot.
They are six points ahead of nearest rivals Colchester with each team having nine to play for, although Southampton could move five behind Town by winning their game in hand at home to Oldham tomorrow.
And Drinkwater, who is contracted at Old Trafford until 2012, said: “I’ve been a United fan since I was a kid and it was a dream to sign for them, but Town are definitely my second-favourite club.
“We’ve done ourselves a lot of good with that win over Millwall, but the job’s not done yet, and we’ll be giving Stockport total respect.
“That said, we want nine points from our three remaining games and to finish as high as we can.
“Were not there yet, but making the play-offs is in our hands, and walking out at Wembley would be a great experience.”
