Forest meet Huddersfield Town tomorrow in the playoff final at Wembley.
"I remember those days in the top division and used to wear a No 22 Forest shirt with Bryan Roy's name on the back, hoping to one day break into the team myself.
"It's unbelievable to think the club are one win away from returning to the big time.
"Only a year ago I was in that dressing room with most of these lads.
"And to see where they've got to and the job manager Steve Cooper has done, is nothing short of sensational.
"When you think they were bottom of the Championship when he walked in and now it all comes down to a play-off final against a Huddersfield side who have also done brilliantly too.
"As a player who came through the youth ranks to break into the first team, it's wonderful to see that academy graduates have played a huge part in this turnaround.
"I've known Brennan since he was a baby as I was team-mates with his dad David Johnson.
"But when I came back to the club for my second spell after playing for Tottenham and Hull, he used to come to train with us.
"He was a quiet lad but I always liked him."
