Two years after their relegation from the Premiership following just a single season of top flight football, Sheffield United have the chance to return via Monday's Championship Play-Off Final against Burnley.
And captain Chris Morgan, who also had a one-year Premiership stay with his previous club Barnsley, is determined to not only lead the Blades back but also to this time help establish the club in the elite division.
Central defender Morgan said: "Everyone was gutted, totally deflated, when we came down two years ago. But everybody can see that we've worked really hard for two seasons to try to get this club back into the top flight.
"That's where we want to be, and the aim when you go up is to do similar to teams like Wigan and Bolton. We don't want to be one of those yo-yo teams, we want to get up there and stay there.
"We feel as though this club is geared for the Premier League and everything is in place. But first we have to get there - we have won the (Play-Off) semi-final, but the bigger picture is that we have achieved nothing yet."
United beat Preston North End in their semi-final while Burnley, who have not been in the top flight for 33 years, got the better of Reading to put themselves 90 minutes away from what could be a great end to a tremendous season.
Having distinguished themselves in both the Carling Cup and FA Cup, beating several Premiership teams on the way, the Clarets have had a marathon campaign that will end at Wembley with their 61st outing of the season.
Manager Owen Coyle, who as a Bolton Wanderers striker scored in a 4-3 Wembley Play-Off Final win against Reading in 1995, is justifiably proud of his team's achievements to date but wants one final push to end the season on a fairy-tale note.
Coyle said: "The prize is a place in the Premier League and that is what everyone wants. We've earned ourselves a chance, but we have not achieved our goal and there is no place for celebration until we do."
Coyle's pragmatic stance is mirrored by that of his playing squad, one of the smallest in the Championship - despite playing more games than any other Football League club, Burnley have used fewer players than any of their divisional rivals.
Striker Martin Paterson said: "The manager hasn't had the money or the opportunity to get bigger-name players, but he has been very shrewd in the market and he's kept belief in the players.
"Now we're going to Wembley and we've got to prepare ourselves for the dream, but first we have to get past very difficult opponents. Getting to the Premier League is such a big prize, though - and if we can do it, it will be a remarkable achievement."
