Blackburn captain Lewis Travis has described leading the team out at Wembley as “big on the bucket list” as Rovers prepare to face Sheffield United for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.Neither the 25-year-old midfielder, who has been with Blackburn since 2014, nor the club have been to the ‘new’ Wembley stadium.They will look to book their place there when they take on the Blades, their fellow Championship outfit, in Sunday’s last-eight tie at Bramall Lane.And Travis said: “It’s massive, it’s big on the bucket list.“If we got to Wembley, it would just be a proud moment for me and my family, one that would stick with me forever.”He added: “I’ve never (been) to be honest.

I keep saying to the people around me I’ve never been but I need to go. This season hopefully we can get there twice – or three times!”As well as having the possibility of playing in the FA Cup semis and final at the stadium, Blackburn are also on track for a place in the Championship play-offs this term.A 2-1 win over Reading on Wednesday – their sixth win in seven games in all competitions, which included beating Sheffield United 1-0 at home in the league on March 4 – left them fifth in the table, five points better off than seventh-placed Norwich.Things appear to be gathering real momentum under the management of Jon Dahl Tomasson, the former Newcastle, AC Milan and Denmark striker who took charge last summer.And Travis said: “There’s a really good feeling in the camp at the moment, all the boys are firing, the fans look like they are buzzing.

It’s just a great place to be at the moment.“I think obviously when a new manager comes in it takes time to implement what he wants on the pitch.
