Charlton Athletic boss Chris Powell is desperate to lead the club back to Wembley.

If they can get past FA Cup opponents Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday, Charlton will be back at Wembley for the first time since their epic 4-4 play-off final and penalty shoot-out win over Sunderland in 1998.

"It's a competition I always feel is one we traditionally don't do well in," said Valley boss Powell.

"It's a bit of a standing joke, Charlton and the cups, but we have turned that around somewhat, which is pleasing.

"It's certainly captured the imagination of our supporters, which is the number one priority for me.

"Of course we still have a big game to negotiate but I'm determined to get us to the new Wembley as we haven't been there yet.

"We were at the old one in 1998 and everyone knows what happened for us that year, so it would be wonderful to get to Wembley again and have 30,000 red and white fans there,"
