Defender Mark Little could not contain his excitement at a Wembley appearance.

Peterborough United full-back Mark Little may not have taken one of the spot-kicks in the shoot-out, but the former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender played a key role as Darren Ferguson's men booked a spot at Wembley following a penalty shoot-out win over Swindon Town.

Little was a threat down the right hand side throughout the 90 minutes and was thrilled to play his part as Posh booked their first appearance at the newly vamped national arena.

'There are hundreds of Premier League footballers and Championship footballers that have never played at Wembley Stadium and this competition gave you the opportunity of walking out at the national football arena and it is fantastic that the lads have that chance.

'It will be a very special occasion and one we are already looking forward to. We wanted to do well in this competition, we set out to get to the final at the start and it is great that we have made it. However, we are not just going there for a day out because trust me, it is a horrible memory if you do not come away with the trophy.

'It is five weeks or so away from now and we have a lot of league games to play and maybe this success can spur us on in the league. We certainly don't do things the easy way. We were 1-0 down and the gaffer was not happy at half-time and rightly so.

'I thought we were a lot better after the break and the lads showed a lot of bottle in the shoot-out to hold their nerve,' Little said.
