Scoring in a Wembley final was a dream come true for Wanderers midfielder Kyle Dempsey.

Dempsey was instrumental In the Whites’ quick start against Plymouth, scoring the opener with a clinical header and also setting up Dion Charles.

The midfielder says getting an early goal was vital and was delighted with the way Wanderers handled the occasion.

Dempsey explained: “It is a dream to score at Wembley. It is a dream to play here and I pictured it on Saturday night, hitting the back of the net.

“Luckily enough, I have been able to do that. Also the assist for Dion, it just felt exactly the same. To win 4-0 here is incredible, especially in front of those fans. They were outstanding today.

“I think on another day, if I’m being critical, I could have had a hat trick. But I will take the goal and the assist!”

He added: “I think (scoring early) settled the nerves. It takes the edge off the game, and we identified every single time that the runs in behind were killing them. We just kept exploiting that.

“I think on another day, we could have been four or five up by half time. We knew at half time how good of a team they are and that they were going to come back at us. We just had to weather that storm, match them in the first 10 minutes of the second half and then the rest would take care of itself.

“All round, a really solid performance and it gives us confidence going until the end of the season now.”

Dempsey had lots of joy down the right flank during the first half, forcing the Pilgrims into an early tactical change.

“I normally play over on the left and I just decided today I would switch over to the right,” he added.

“I have been linking up with Conor and Kacha in training a lot and I felt like it was a good partnership.

“Today, it was great. Everything seemed to come off for us. I identified early on that every single time I was running in behind, I wasn’t being tracked.

“I just kept doing it. I wasn’t really coming to feet, I was just running in behind and I had so much success doing it.”

Despite such a positive display during the opening 45 minutes, the midfielder says Ian Evatt kept his feet firmly on the ground.

“The gaffer will never come in and praise us, he always keeps us on our toes,” said Dempsey.

“He came in and just said, ‘the job’s not done. It’s 0-0, go and win the second half’. It was as simple as that - win the second half and we win the game.

“He kept us on our toes, kept us focused and we went out there and delivered probably even better than the first half.”
