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.
The winners will play Championship football at places like Portman Road and Layer Road next season, as Blackpool look to be back in the second tier of English football for the first time since 1978 and Yeovil look to make it for the first time in their history.
Stewart will be among a trio of ex-Town stars from the 2000 win over Barnsley appearing at Wembley next weekend.
