Buckle looking forward to final

Paul Buckle
It will be Buckle's second trip to Wembley with the Gulls

Torquay manager Paul Buckle is looking forward to the play-off final despite criticising his side's defending in the second leg of the semi-final at Histon.

The Gulls lost 1-0 but won the tie 2-1 on aggregate and will play Cambridge in the Wembley final on 17 May.

Buckle told BBC Radio Devon: "We never make it easy, we fell behind to a set play which is always disappointing.

"But we've won the right to be in the final. It will be tough as Cambridge will want it as much as we do."

Buckle added: "I really do think you'll see a great game of football, they'll want to get the ball down and play.

"They've got a very good side, however I believe I've got a very good side.

"We'll need a little bit of luck, but I've got total faith. It's a fantastic achievement for our second year together".

It is the second year at Wembley for the Gulls, last year they lost the FA Trophy final to Ebbsfleet United.
