Joe Ledley says the Bluebirds must take their FA Cup final chance

Cardiff City midfielder Joe Ledley says they have a brilliant opportunity to make their mark in the FA Cup final.

Ledley scored the vital semi-final goal against Barnsley that put them into the 17 May final against Portsmouth.

He said: "It was probably the best goal I've scored and hopefully someone can make history on 17 May.

"It's brilliant for us players to be in the final. Some of us may not get another chance to do this so we have to make the day special."

Paul Parry's return from injury has boosted Dave Jones' side and Ledley, 21, believes his presence could prove vital.

"I don't think there are that many people injured now and we have got a strong squad," said Ledley.

"Hopefully we can go to Wembley with everyone fully fit and fighting for their places.

"It's great that Paul Parry is back. He's up there as top goal-scorer with me so hopefully he can perform on the day."
