Darren Ambrose is still buzzing from his wonder goal against Manchester United - but he would settle for a tap-in against semi-final opponents Cardiff if it fired Crystal Palace into the Carling Cup final.

The 27-year-old midfielder's stunning strike helped Palace pull off a major shock in November when they dumped the Red Devils out 2-1 in the quarter-finals and former United defender-turned-TV pundit Gary Neville claimed the 35-yarder was the best goal he had seen from a visiting team at Old Trafford in 20 years.

Ambrose admitted: "After Gary Neville's comments I had about 100 texts from people telling me what he had said, so hopefully I can do it again. I didn't actually know how far I was out until I watched it back. I'm always looking to shoot, I love scoring goals, but if it was a one-yard tap-in I'd take that."
