MICKEY THOMAS’ fingers are crossed this weekend as two of his former clubs go for glory at Wembley.

First up is the FA Cup final where Manchester United take on their arch City enemies tomorrow while on Sunday, Leeds United face Southampton in the battle to gain a place back in the Premier League.

“They’re both tough games but it would be great to see United beat City and then for Leeds to win promotion,” said Thomas, who made more than 100 appearances for Manchester United after his £350,000 move from Wrexham in 1978.

“If City don’t turn up then United have got a chance but they are such a dominant team.

“United have nothing to lose; City are the firm favourites but cup finals are one-off games and anything can happen.”

Former Welsh international Thomas played in one of the most memorable FA Cup finals ever when United came back from 2-0 down only to lose out to Alan Sunderland’s last minute-winner as Arsenal snatched a 3-2 victory in 1979.

“FA Cup finals are great occasions and I’m sure Saturday’s will be too. United have had a couple of good results going into the final and they’ll be fired up to beat City,” added Thomas, who hopes to be at Wembley tomorrow.

As for Sunday’s multi-million Championship play-off final, Thomas believes it will be a tight affair.

“Both are top flight clubs,” said Thomas, who only managed three games for Leeds during an injury-ravaged 18-month spell at Elland Road between 1989 and 1990.

“Leeds have got a lot of Welsh lads in their side and it would be great to see Ethan Ampadu and co playing in the Premier League next season.

“Leeds are a big club with a great fan base but the same can be said about Southampton, who are a good side. With so much at stake, it’s tough to call a winner.”
