Mark Noble is desperate for another taste of play-off final success when West Ham take on Blackpool at Wembley on Saturday.

Homegrown midfielder Noble is the sole survival of the Hammers squad which beat Preston at the Millennium Stadium to secure promotion under Alan Pardew in 2005.

"It was unbelievable for me because I was still a kid," said Noble. "I remember sitting on the bench and Pards saying `get ready, you are going on'.

"I got 20 minutes or whatever it was and it was an unbelievable occasion to get out there and help see a game out, and win it, and the feeling afterwards.

"I've only ever had that feeling a couple of times in my career and hopefully I will get it again."
