Aston Villa striker Lewis Grabban will be looking to recreate his former Wembley glory on Saturday when Villa take on Fulham in the Playoff final.

Graaban has said that the aim is to get the club back in the Premier League at the second time of asking.

The striker has already played four times at the national stadium, winning twice and losing twice.

The 30-year-old striker was on the losing side in last years Play-Off Final when his Reading side lost out to Huddersfield on penalties.

However, the forward is determined to right the wrongs this time around with his new side.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, he said: “When you lose at Wembley, you just want to go home, get out of the stadium as quickly as possible,

“When you win it’s one of the happiest days of your career.

 “Winning with Norwich was the best day of my career, certainly in terms of the joy and achievement.
“It’s a bigger achievement going through the play-offs than winning automatic promotion because you’ve got the pressure of three extra games to get through.”
The forward is currently on loan from Bournemouth has hit 20 goals this season between his time at Villa Park and Sunderland.
However, he insists he isn’t sure where his future lies come the end of the season.

“I can’t really comment on what the future is going to hold. I have enjoyed my time here and we will see what happens in the summer.” He said.

“I have enjoyed it here and hopefully it can be a success. It would be a nice accomplishment.”

Villa will be hoping for promotion in the capital on Saturday, and the Midlanders will be looking for Graaban to score the goals to fire them to the top-tier of English football.
