Published Add your comment

Sam Allardyce is looking for a repeat performance at Wembley after West Ham reached the npower Championship play-off final.

The Hammers are just 90 minutes from an immediate return to the top flight after goals from Kevin Nolan, Ricardo Vaz Te and Nicky Maynard swept aside Cardiff 3-0. Having led 2-0 from the first leg, West Ham finished the job in style with a 5-0 aggregate success and will now face Blackpool or Birmingham on May 19 - the club's first trip to Wembley in 31 years.

Upton Park boss Allardyce said: "The away game gave us the platform and this performance, to top it, was terrific. I'm pleased for all the players, the staff and the fans. We've got a massive opportunity over 90 minutes to get back into the golden league, where it all happens."
