MARCUS Stewart will be walking in a Wembley wonderland next Sunday as he plots a return to Portman Road as a Yeovil Town player.
Stewart helped the Glovers to a League One play-off final against Blackpool, seven years after playing for the Blues at the last Wembley final.
Yeovil overcame a two-goal first leg deficit to beat Nottingham Forest 5-4 on aggregate, with Stewart firing in a bullet header to take the game into extra time, while Town loanees Darryl Knights and Martin Brittain were unused substitutes for Russell Slade's side.
