Bradford knock Aston Villa out to reach Capital One Cup final

Badford are heading to Wembley – and there’s not an egg-shaped ball in sight.

The League Two side beat Aston Villa 3-4 on aggregate after a 2-1 defeat at Villa Park last night.

Paul Lambert’s side crashed out in humiliating circumstances, losing to a side three divisions below them over two legs.

Christian Benteke gave Villa the lead, before James Hanson headed in a second-half equaliser. Andreas Weimann bagged a late goal as Villa resorted to hit-and-hope football, but the Premier League side could not find the third goal they needed to take the tie to extra-time.
