He said: "The appetite for this game is even stronger having been to Wembley once this season. It is a great incentive for us.
"We lost the Carling Cup final and you could see by the second half performance in the FA Cup quarter-final at Reading that there was a renewed determination to get back there again.
"Of course, we face Chelsea. That won't be easy, particularly after what happened a fortnight ago, but the players are ready to go.
"We certainly got some lost confidence back from winning at Bolton and not conceding a goal helped us too. We know how difficult the task is ahead but we are ready for it.
"There is no question for a few days we were all pretty despondent after the Chelsea defeat, but the great thing is you get a chance quickly to put things right."
