Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore has urged his side to make the most of their "once in a lifetime" opportunity after they booked their place in Coca-Cola League Two play-off final at Wembley with a 3-0 aggregate semi-final win over Aldershot.

Coming into the game with a 1-0 first-leg lead, the Millers put in a fine display and Adam Le Fondre's 30th goal of the season and Kevin Ellison's second-half header saw the Millers run out 2-0 winners on the night.

"We will celebrate but the players will have to take it easy," he said. "We look forward to it, it's something that comes around once in a lifetime and I will tell the players to make sure they have no regrets."

He added: "We have got to Wembley, but we have won nothing. We have won the right to go to Wembley to get promoted, we have to make sure we steady them down."

Rotherham came into the play-offs on a poor run of form, but Moore was delighted to see his side turn that around and felt they were worthy of the win.

"I thought we earned it, we have played one of the best sides in the division and we have coped with everything. I think we just about edged it.

"There's now 11 days before the final so we have to work out our plans and what to do."
