TOUMANI Diagouraga is desperate to make up for his Wembley agony by helping Brentford to play-off glory.
The Bees midfielder endured a nightmare on his last visit to the home of football as he was sent-off in the 1-0 defeat to Carlisle United in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final in 2011.
Diagouraga has a chance to make amends when Brentford take on Yeovil Town on Sunday afternoon with a place in the Championship up for grabs.
And the Frenchman has vowed to right his wrongs and help the Bees to promotion.
He said: “Last time we went there I got sent-off and we lost, so hopefully it will be better!
“It was devastating, especially seeing them lift the trophy afterwards. Seeing all of our fans leaving disappointed was hard to take. We don't want to go through that again.
“I had family and friends from France over to watch, but was sent-off for two bookings. I've got no complaints, although the second one could've been avoided because I got a hospital pass from Leon Legge!
“It's great to get to Wembley, but losing is even more painful.
“But you can't look back. If I get the chance to play there again I'll give 100 per cent.
“This is a chance to make up for it and put it right. We want to go there and win – losing's not an option for us.”
Diagouraga insists he's got unfinished business in the Championship after being deemed surplus requirements at Peterborough United in 2010.
“I still feel I can do a job at that level,” added the former Watford trainee.
“I started 18 games in the Championship but Darren Ferguson got sacked and I found myself out of the side.
“This is the best team I've played in during my career. We've got a strong squad, it's not just the first XI. We would hold our own in the Championship.
“But we're not taking anything for granted. Yeovil are a tough team and have beaten us twice, although previous meetings count for nothing. It's a one-off, winner-takes-all match.”
