League Cup semi-finals, first leg: Bradford City shock Aston Villa, 3-1

After dumping out Arsenal, Bradford City turned its attention to Aston Villa in the League Cup semi-finals, first leg. And they humiliated the Premiership side. Nakhi Wells got them going with a nice finish after being kept onside. Some awful defending on set pieces saw the Villans concede two more goals. The last goal had enough power to light a small country. Matt Duke also came up with some spectacular saves. Andre Weimann got one back as team mate Darren Bent missed a point blank header. That was about it.
That would be a long ride back home for Paul Lambert’s side as they ponder the return leg. A triumphant Bradford City could be headed for the finals.
