Millwall striker Lee Gregory is ready to silence the Bradford boo boys at Wembley on Saturday.
Gregory is hated by Bantams fans because of his four-year spell with Yorkshire rivals Halifax.
The Millwall talisman is desperate to score against Bradford to ensure the Lions avoid more Wembley heartache. Neil Harris’ men lost 3-1 to Barnsley in last year’s League One play-off final.
Gregory, 28, said: “Bradford fans don’t like me. Maybe it’s because of my Halifax connections.
“Every time I play up there I get a lot of stick. I assume I’ll be getting more stick on Saturday.
“Losing at Wembley is one of the worst feelings you can have in football.
“I was there supporting Sheffield United when I was younger and we lost. But it’s ten times worse when you’re playing.
“I don’t want that feeling again. I’m going to try everything - everything - to not have that feeling again.”
Gregory used to play with Premier League title winner Jamie Vardy during their Halifax days.
They were team-mates in the 2010/11 season, when the Leicester striker netted 27 goals.
When asked whether he was expecting a good luck message from Vardy, Gregory said: “No, not yet. I don’t want to speak to him yet, not until we win.”
Now, Gregory has another clinical striker playing alongside him in Steve Morison.
The pair have one of the most formidable partnerships in League One, scoring a combined 36 goals this term.
And they will be key to Millwall’s hopes of winning promotion to the Championship on Saturday.
Gregory added: “We don’t know how the partnership works, something clicks. We’re usually on different teams in training so we never work on it.
“The gaffer takes the two of us now and again for finishing but that’s about it.
“But as soon as we get out on the pitch, he knows his job, I know my job. I know what I’m good at and what I’m not good at. It just seems to work.”
