Bantams off to Wembley after Villa win

Published 1 Comments

Bradford became the first fourth-tier club to reach the League Cup final for 51 years as they stunned Barclays Premier League strugglers Aston Villa with a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Villa were unable to claw back the 3-1 deficit from the first leg of the Capital One Cup encounter even though leading scorer Christian Benteke put them in front before half-time.

James Hanson's headed effort early in the second period effectively killed off the tie and Villa substitute Andreas Weimann's last-gasp goal secured a 2-1 win on the night but it was too little, too late.
