DANNY HYLTON was overjoyed to score at Wembley, but admits he would have taken victory over a goal.

The Oxford United striker superbly headed in Kemar Roofe's cross just a minute after the U's had gone 3-1 behind.

But Michael Appleton's side were unable to find an equaliser.

"It was obviously really nice to score at Wembley, but if you had said before the game that I wouldn't score but we would win the game I would have taken that," he said.

"I am gutted to be honest with you, but we have got to refocus now and make sure we win on Saturday when we are back in the league."

Hylton said it was an exciting match to play in, with a ferocious tempo throughout.

"Both teams were really going at it and it was really end-to-end," he commented.

"I thought we started brighter, but after getting that goal ahead it was a shame we had a mad 20 minutes conceding three goals in the second half, when we knew they would come at us.

"We almost got back into it, but we were a bit unlucky in the end and are all very disappointed."

Scoring a goal in front of more than 33,000 United fans, however, means Hylton will have some great memories of the day.

"Roofey has done terrific to beat his man and he's put in a fantastic cross and I just had to make sure I got the right contact on it," he said.

"I was so glad to see it go in.

"The fans were phenonemal.

"It is something I will never forget scoring in front of them. It will stay with me forever seeing the whole end go up. It seemed to happen in slow motion."

He added: "The whole day was an amazing experience though.

"It could be a one-off playing here, so it's a shame we didn't get the result, but it was a great day.

"Now it's on to the final six games of the season, and we know what we need to do in those."
