Ryan Shawcross is determined to come out on top in Tuesday's rematch against Manchester City.
Stoke suffered Wembley heartache on Saturday as they lost 1-0 to Manchester City in the final of the FA Cup, but have an immediate opportunity to exact revenge in the Premier League.
The Potters go on to face relegation-threatened Wigan at the weekend and Shawcross hopes to finish the season strongly.
"We've got two massive games and hopefully we can avenge the performance against City on Tuesday," said the defender.
"It's going to be difficult but hopefully we can."
Saturday's defeat robbed Shawcross of the honour of being the first Stoke captain to lift the FA Cup, although he still made history by being the first man to lead them out in the final.
And, at 23, there is plenty of time for him to go one step further and end the Potters' 148-year quest for the trophy.
He added: "I want to be in more cup finals and win trophies. This is a massive incentive. But I definitely want to play in more big occasions.
"We will learn from this and grow as a team. We have had a great season but our performance was disappointing. We just never turned up.
"We want to finish our season with six points from the two games.
"There will always be regrets and 'if onlys' but there's always next season to put things right."
Midfielder Glenn Whelan, meanwhile, has insisted Saturday's defeat will not take away from the club's amazing achievements this term.
"It's a great season," said Whelan. "Getting to a final. No-one fancied us to win before the game and we've done okay.
"Obviously, getting to Europe is a big occasion for the club and hopefully we can push on now.
"Big disappointment, but put that to the back of our minds."
Whelan was also able reflect on a personal triumph this season, having forced his way back into the side to play a key role for Tony Pulis' men.
"I was out early on in the season but got back in and I think my form's been pretty decent since," he said.
"So hopefully play the next two games and kick on, and see where it takes us."
