Agbonlahor wants second Wembley chance

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor wants to return to Wembley to help make up for the injustice he felt was suffered on his last appearance there in the 2010 League Cup final.

Agbonlahor will have a key part to play when Villa attempt to overturn a 3-1 first leg semi-final deficit in tonight's Capital One Cup clash with visiting Bradford. He is desperate to get back to Wembley to put behind him an incident in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester United three years ago after only five minutes of the final.

Agbonlahor was hauled down inside the box by Nemanja Vidic and, although referee Phil Dowd gave a penalty, he chose not to send off the United defender despite what appeared a clear goalscoring opportunity. The Villa winger said: "You want to make it right, what happened in that last final. It is a case of unfinished business, definitely."
