Mills: 'Promotion is everything'

York City boss Gary Mills says winning promotion to the Football League would mean everything to the club.

The Minstermen travel to Wembley to take on Luton Town in this Sunday's Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final.

If York win, they would be back in the Football League for the first time since 2004. It would also see the club claim a Wembley double this season after last weekend's FA Trophy victory over Newport.

Speaking ahead of the game, Mills said: "[Promotion is] Everything. Absolutely everything."

"It's an opportunity for all us to get York City back in the Football League, and instead of saying 'We're in the conference' saying, 'We're a Football League club' again."

"Big day for us. But I'm sure we can do it."
