To make a Wembley sandwich, you most certainly require a delicious filling. Once you’ve developed a taste for the place you immediately crave more, and Easter Weekend provides an early chance to pilfer some Wembley-flavoured butty paste from the (portable) fridges of Reading and Burnley. Or, failing that, a couple of egg-ceptional chocolate treats at the very least.

Back to the day job, then. The formula is thus: three wins from five games guarantee a play-off spot. Where are they gonna come from? Who’s gonna rise, who’s gonna fall? Jeez, that sounds like an FA Cup Final song we could have been writing right now. Sob…
