Swansea manager Michael Laudrup admits it will take time for the club's progression to a "fairytale" Wembley final to properly sink in.

The Swans reached the Capital One Cup final, where they will face npower League Two Bradford, after a goalless draw in the second leg of their semi-final against Chelsea sealed a 2-0 aggregate win. While Eden Hazard's sending off for kicking a ball boy has grabbed most of the headlines, it should not detract from Swansea's achievement.

Just 10 years ago the club sat rock bottom of the Football League, and a year earlier had faced going out of business. The Dane said: "I think everybody, the players, the staff, and the fans need a couple of days to understand we are there, but the good thing is we have a month to be ready."
