Guzan targets cup redemption

Published Add your comment

Goalkeeper Brad Guzan wants to make amends for one of the biggest disappointments of his career by helping Aston Villa return to Wembley in the Capital One Cup.

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. Now Guzan is hoping to help Villa take another step towards this season's final with victory at npower League One side Swindon.

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."
