Bradford boss Phil Parkinson declared himself "ecstatic" with his team's efforts after the npower League Two outfit pulled off a giant-killing at Wigan to secure a place in the Capital One Cup quarter-finals.

Having soaked up plenty of pressure from their Barclays Premier League hosts over the course of a contest that finished goalless after extra-time, the Bantams triumphed 4-2 on penalties - with Latics midfielders Shaun Maloney and Jordi Gomez both failing to convert their spot-kicks.

Asked how he felt about the victory, Parkinson said: "I am ecstatic. I thought it was a night of great discipline by the team. There were a lot of big hearts out there. Wigan give you problems that are ones we don't normally come up against in League Two, in terms of the movement of the team and their shape."
