Villa keeper Guzan desperate to make up for Wembley heartbreak

Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan is eyeing a trip to Wembley as they prepare for Capital One Cup opponents Swindon Town.

Guzan played in every round in the lead-up to the 2010 final only for the then number one Brad Friedel to be preferred against Manchester United, who lifted the trophy after a 2-1 win.

The United States international said: "Being left out for the final was one of biggest disappointments of career.

"It was quite frustrating and a difficult pill to swallow.

"But that's behind me and I think that has made me a stronger goalkeeper and a stronger person.

"If we can get back there to Wembley again, that would be great."

Guzan admitted: "It would definitely be good to back there and play. But that's a long way off.

"We've got a massive game on Tuesday where we have to take care of business first with.

"For me, it is just a case of one game at a time and keep moving forward.

"We will try to get the win and into the hat for the next round and if we can do that it will be a job well done."
