Iain Hume has declared his desire to earn a place in Fleetwood’s squad for the trip to Wembley as the Cod Army seek a sixth promotion in ten years.
They will face Burton Albion, who’s 2-2 draw with Southend on Saturday was enough to see them progress. Graham Alexander’s side booked their spot at Wembley thanks to a 1-0 aggregate win over York with Matty Blair’s goal in the first leg enough to see them through.
Hume’s final game for the Cod Army will the play-off final, the striker’s first ever game at Wembley. Hume has only been part of the Fleetwood squad since March following a loan move from Preston and may have a part to play in another historic occasion in the club’s short, yet successful football league history.
They have risen through the divisions since Andy Pilley became the club’s chairman and Hume hopes there is yet another promotion for Fleetwood fans to celebrate come Monday. “The owner’s come in and it just seems to be promotion after promotion and I don’t think we want to ruin that trend. Next week is going to be a massive day for everyone involved in the club and we’re going to do our best to come out on top”.
The Canadian forward has applied his trade in the higher echelons of the Football League with Tranmere, Leicester and Barnsley among his former employers and Fleetwood will be looking for him to use his experience to their best interests at Wembley.
