ALAN Lee has his heart set on a Wembley double date in May.

Lee scored 12 goals in 96 games when he was at Cardiff City for a two-and-half year stint and is hoping he will be in London to watch his former club take on Portsmouth in the FA Cup final on May 17 and then with Ipswich Town in the play-off final the following Saturday.

Cardiff have already booked their Wembley date and Lee is confident Town can follow them, even though the Bluebirds are chasing a double appearance, which Town can make harder by beating the 12th-placed side tomorrow.

He said: “The squad has changed a bit since I was at the club but when we played at Ninian Park there were still many familiar faces around - and friends as well.

“Hopefully they will be at Wembley one week and we will follow them seven days later in the play-off final.

“We know we have a lot to do, especially after the defeat at Colchester, but we still have a decent chance and we have to make sure we take it.

“It is a big week for us, with Norwich coming up as well, but if we can pick up six points it will give us a massive lift.”

Lee had the chance to go to Sunday's semi-final in the capital against Barnsley but the Blues were in on Sunday warming down after the 2-0 loss at Colchester United.

He said: “My priority is obviously Ipswich but I'm delighted for Cardiff.

“I was offered tickets for the semi-final against Barnsley but with us training and the game on Wednesday it was not possible to go but I'm hoping to make it to the final and go along and support them if things work out.”

After starting like a train the striker, who has 11 goals in 41 games so far this season, has dried up of late and will be looking to snatch just his third in 22 games when he faces his old club tomorrow.

The 29-year-old Lee scored in the 1-1 draw at home with Sheffield United last month, got one in the 2-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday in February and before that it was a goal in the 3-1 win at home against Leicester City in December.
