Wembley Here We Come: West Ham United make the play-off final

West Ham United are back at Wembley for the Championship Play Off final

West Ham United have taken a major step towards returning to the Premier League after they won the second leg of the Championship play-off 3-0 against Cardiff today.

Captain Kevin Nolan settled the nerves with an opening header from a corner. Ricardo Vaz Te made it 2-0 and Nicky Maynard making it 3-0 in the last minute,

Their 5-0 aggregate win gives them a chance to bounce back to the top flight after just one season in the Championship in the final at Wembley on May 19, against either Birmingham or Blackpool.
