When Millwall stepped out alongside Manchester United at the Millennium Stadium in 2004, they became the first side outside the top flight to play in the FA Cup Final since 1982.

The south-east London club, who host Bradford City in the Cup Third Round on Saturday, enjoyed a thrilling run to the Final 11 years ago, seeing off Walsall, Telford United, Burnley, Tranmere Rovers and Sunderland.

In the end Dennis Wise's men were powerless to resist Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo, losing 3-0.

We caught up with Millwall's left-back for the final, Robbie Ryan, now working on the London Underground, and Millwall Supporters Club's Stan Godwin to recount the run to the Final.
