Sunderland midfielder David Vaughan is looking to again get to Wembley after previous successes at the venue.

The Welshman helped Blackpool into the Premier League with a Championship play-off triumph over Cardiff City in 2010 and is now planning to return to the great site with a FA Cup semi-final in the offing.

Sunderland are away at Everton in the quarter-final on Saturday and Vaughan is determined to get past the Toffees to make into the top four so he can experience Wembley yet again.

"The trip to Wembley with Blackpool was great, it was probably the best moment of my career," he told the Evening Chronicle. "Hopefully, I can go back there with Sunderland and re-live that.

"You do not get bigger occasions than a big FA Cup game at Wembley. If we can be part of that it would be great.

"It is a huge game and we are desperate to get through to the semis. Everton are a really strong team, especially at home, and it is going to be a really difficult game for us.

"The home game we played in the league against them was a tight one. We cannot let them have easy chances and hopefully we will have some ourselves.

"Anything but a loss would be good for us there, but hopefully we can find a win. We needed to turn things around against Liverpool last weekend and get a few points on the board. Winning games breeds confidence."
