Bradford booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup after causing a major shock with a 4-2 penalty shoot-out victory at Wigan after a goalless 120 minutes.

A Latics side featuring nine changes from Saturday's Barclays Premier League victory over West Ham created a host of opportunities but could not make a breakthrough during the 90 minutes or in extra-time as their spirited npower League Two opponents held on for spot-kicks.

Shaun Maloney then blazed his penalty over and Jordi Gomez saw his saved as the visitors advanced to the last eight of the competition.
