Swindon boss Danny Wilson praised his side's courage after they booked a place at Wembley with a penalty shoot-out win at Charlton.
Charlton captain Nicky Bailey missed the only effort of the shoot-out to settle a thrilling 120 minutes at the Valley, where Danny Ward's goal sent the game to extra time.
Wilson said: "The lads showed the application, the determination and the courage to get to Wembley."
He added: "In the first half we didn't play well, and when you go a man down at Charlton that makes it very difficult so to score in the manner we did was very courageous.
"Then we could have been negative and sat back but we got back into the tie. They then had the sending-off and it's anybody's.
"You feel sorry for anyone going out on penalties and I feel for Phil Parkinson and for Bailey, because he's one of the best midfielders in the division and it's heartbreaking."
