Cardiff midfielder Peter Whittingham believes it is time for the club to move on from their previous Wembley heartaches and "put things right" in Sunday's Carling Cup final against Liverpool.

The south Wales club, with Dave Jones at the helm, suffered the disappointment of defeat to Portsmouth in the 2008 FA Cup final and then had to endure the agony of missing out on promotion to the Premier League when they lost to Blackpool in the 2010 Championship play-off final.

Former Aston Villa playmaker Whittingham has no desire to go through those experiences again, and said: "Going to Wembley has not been too nice to us, obviously we lost to Blackpool in the play-off final so this is a good time to put things right and it's something we think we can do."
