Marcus Bettinelli has revealed it would 'mean the world' to win promotion at Wembley with Fulham , but is under no illusion there's a long way to go before then.
Fulham all but secured their play-off place on Saturday courtesy of a 1-1 draw with Brentford at Craven Cottage - a game where the side's penalty woes continued with Tom Cairney missing the opportunity to make it 2-1 when Daniel Bentley saved his spot kick.
The side will finish sixth whatever happens (barring a 13 goal swing to Leeds), meaning they will face either Reading, Sheffield Wednesday or Huddersfield in the end of season showpiece, with the first leg set to take place at the Cottage next weekend (May 13/14).
Bettinelli holds Fulham close to his heart and he has made it clear just how special the club is to him and what it would mean to get back to the Premier League via Wembley.
He said: "That's my aim goal, to not just get to Wembley but the get promoted and that's the aim for everyone in there.
"We're a team, we aren't individuals and yeah the gaffer has brought me in but that isn't the reason why we've won the last four before today and been unbeaten.
"The reason is we've stuck together and had difficult games and managed to get through them.
"Winning promotion would mean the world - to have my family there and see all the fans, I know how special this club is and I know the fans want to be back in the Premier League.
"When I was coming through the academy we were in the Premier League and it was a special time and I want to be apart of that and be part of that winning side that takes us back to the top flight.
"it would be amazing to do that at Wembley and that's our aim but we have a tough couple of games to get there first and we'll focus on them first."
