Bantams' Wembley charge providing welcome 'cup magic'
IT'S not often you hear football fans referring to the 'magic of the Capital One Cup' – but last night really was something special.
After knocking Arsenal out of the competition in the quarter-finals, Bradford City added another Premier League scalp to their list with a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa.
True, it's only half the job done for Phil Parkinson's men, with the semi-final second leg to come at Villa Park.
But the Bantams, who had Grimsby Town target Ross Hannah on the bench, have a precious two-goal lead to cling on to.

And, in fairness, they were the better side for large parts of last night's clash at Valley Parade.
What a fantastic story it would be if the League Two side can finish the job and make it to Wembley.
That would give us all - including Mariners fans – hope of enjoying our own dose of 'cup magic' in the future.
