"I was afraid, after the tackle, that I had got a bad injury," the former Celtic man told reporters. "I have had a few ankle injuries before, so I know how bad they can be.

"I seriously thought I might miss Wembley when that happens. I thought I might not be able to play for two or three months, but I was very lucky."

However, after getting the all clear, Ki has now set his sights on earning a starting berth for the final against Bradford.

"We're all fighting for a place in the team at Wembley," he added. "Every player is ready to play. We have shown this season that anyone can come in and do well.

"We have got good strength in this squad."
