The weekend is almost upon us and what better way to celebrate than with a trip down Memory Lane?

Ipswich Town travel to Barnsley tomorrow, aiming for three Championship points to remain in contention with the play-offs.

For Barnsley, however, it’s a very different story with the Reds desperate for points to try and get out of the bottom three.

It all seems a long way from the events at Wembley, almost 14 years ago, when Town clinched their place back in the Premier League with a 4-2 victory over the South Yorkshire outfit.

A Richard Wright own goal gave the Reds the lead, but Tony Mowbray, Richard Naylor and Marcus Stewart put George Burley’s side well in command.

A Craig Hignett penalty gave Barnsley hope, but Martijn Reuser sealed promotion and sent the majority of Suffolk into ecstasy.
