He would also earn a £2 million bonus from his contract if Villa manage to beat Fulham in the play-off final at Wembley this Saturday.

"Villa have players who have experienced playing in this stadium", said former Chelsea midfielder Jokanovic, who led Watford to promotion from the Championship in 2015.

For the former Manchester United centre-half Bruce, promotion tomorrow would signal his fifth time achieving such a feat. I am not thinking about the future.

Having previously taken Birmingham City (2001/02 & 2006/07) and Hull City (2012/13 & 2015/16) into the Premier League from the Championship, he is a dab hand when it comes to these late season pushes.

"Slowly but surely we have tried to change it around".

It's been a stellar year for Fulham, who had a chance to overtake Cardiff for automatic promotion in the final games of the season. And Ream has seen his fair share of plaudits for the success Slavisa Jokanovic's team have enjoyed. He'd have said: 'I can't stand all that crap, Steve.

"Even now I watch some of their goals on YouTube to try and learn from them".

"Over the course of two years now, the confidence that the manager has not only given myself but the entire team and the ability and the freedom to go and play no matter the situation has just brought the best out of us and I am no different". The 37-year-old appears to have made a decision to block out any external distractions as he trains ahead of Saturday's game.

"He's the most humble kid I've ever met".

"Usually in the past if you're preparing for a big game and you know the team on a Tuesday - if I wasn't in it then on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I'd have a face like a slapped a***". "In the industry we're in, there is so much negativity and so-called bad people around everywhere, and when something happens like what's happened to me, with how cruel it is, then the number of messages of support and cards I've had has been quite remarkable. He's never let us down". We are going to follow our style and be confident we will cross the line.

"He is a really strong and fast player and we started working with him in different positions, and step-by-step he started to improve himself. Thankfully, I say thankfully, but we knew everyone was going to show up on the night and perform and we did".
