Bradford's co-chairman Mark Lawn has his eyes on a barely-credible Wembley final after the Bantams made it into the last four of the Capital One Cup at the expense of Arsenal.

Lawn, who admits he is "probably the only chairman with a tattoo of the club on his arm", woke up with a thick head on Wednesday morning "after a few sherberts" and the dawning realisation that League Two side Bradford are only two semi-final legs away from a dream final.

It is a far cry from the grim years of 2002 and 2004 when the club suffered two administrations, and two relegations, following a period of over-spending in the Premier League. Lawn, who bailed out the debt-laden club in 2007, said: "When I saw the side (Arsenal) put out I thought we were going to get hammered but the lads did brilliant."
