Matt Lowton wants to return to Wembley with Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup after suffering the lowest point of his career at the same stadium seven months ago.

Defender Lowton was part of the Sheffield United team beaten on penalties by Huddersfield in the npower League One play-off final. The 23-year-old missed one of his side's spot-kicks as the Terriers eventually won 8-7 on penalties.

Lowton said: "I had a bad experience there last year. I loved the day but the outcome was a massive disappointment. We worked hard all year to get there but fell at the last hurdle. Going to Wembley is a boyhood dream but losing there was the worst thing that has happened in my career up until now."
