Fleetwood Town boss Graham Alexander is delighted to be in the League Two playoff final.

The Cod Army, reformed for the second time in 1997, beat York 1-0 on aggregate - following Friday night's 0-0 draw at Highbury - and now have the chance to enter uncharted waters by reaching the third tier of English football.

"I'm really happy - to get to Wembley is the next step that we wanted to take, it's not the goal, it's not the target, but it's the next step," the former Scotland international said.

"York made it hard for us for at nil-nil. It was end-to-end and a proper play-off game and we're pleased we got there."
