Lindsey last went to Wembley in 2017 when he was assistant manager of Forest Green and helped them to victory to gain promotion to the Football League. At the game that day was his wife Hayley, whose life was cruelly cut short two years later by kidney cancer. Lindsey said in today’s press conference: 'My wife who passed away was there last time so I will probably be looking up to see where she was sitting.”

He also said: “I am so focused on the team and making sure they are prepared that I will probably reflect on the magnitude and occasion after.”
