DANNY WARD is hoping for a different outcome when he goes into his second play-off final in 12 months tomorrow.
The 19-year-old loan striker from Bolton Wanderers was part of Swindon’s beaten side in last year’s League I decider against Millwall.
He admits it was a very bitter disappointment, but one which will drive him on to help produce a victory for Town against Peterborough at Old Trafford.
"We are all really looking forward to it and we deserve this chance," said Ward, who scored in the semi-final second leg against Bournemouth at the Galpharm and then netted a penalty in the shoot-out success.
"What happened in the final last year was a bitter disappointment to me, but hopefully I can put that right now and we can be promoted to the Championship.
"I think all the lads are in a confident mood because we are on a great run, but we won’t be complacent or get overawed by the whole occasion.
"We will focus on the game against Peterborough and make sure we are prepared mentally and physically.
"It has always been a dream of mine to play at Old Trafford, so this is great and, like I said before, I am really looking forward to it."
Ward scored nine times in 31 games for Swindon last season and has three in seven for Town.
"We’ve got a fantastic squad, the coaching staff have always believed in us and the fans have been brilliant all season," he added.
"As a squad we never give up, we always fight to the end, and you can be sure we will all be giving it 110% in the final.
"If we can win it, it will be the best moment of my career by a long way, there’s no doubt."
