Swansea City striker Stephen Dobbie believes manager Brendan Rodgers deserves the plaudits for his work at the club.
Rodgers failed to impress with Reading after leaving Watford, but he has rebuilt his reputation quickly at the Liberty Stadium.
The Swans are now just a game away from the Promised Land with a Championship play-off final to come against Reading on Monday.
Dobbie insists spirit in the camp is high ahead of their Wembley showdown and that the team are relishing the chance to win promotion.
"The gaffer (Rodgers) is fantastic and I'm sure you've all seen the videos of Ian Holloway, he's just a character the same as the gaffer," Dobbie said.
"He's turned the team around from defending into attacking.
"There are similarities with the team spirit as well, it shows when we go away on activity days and everyone's together.
"There's good banter and I think that's what sets you in good stead for the big games."
On a personal level, Dobbie added: "For me growing up and watching finals at Wembley, obviously this is a new one, I would never have thought I would be there once let alone twice in two years.
"So it's a dream for me and the boys are buzzing for it."
