Sports Briefs – The League Cup

In an amazing night of League Cup action, West Yorkshire side Bradford City dumped Premier League big boys Arsenal out of the cup to get one step away from Wembley.

After taking an early lead, the underdogs were pegged back by the Gunners, before a dramatic penalty shoot out saw the Bantams through.

Elsewhere, former Norwich City manager Paul Lambert took his new side Aston Villa to Carrow road in an eagerly anticipated game.

City had been on a great unbeaten run but where outclassed by their midlands opponents who ran out 4-1 victors.

However the night belonged to League two side Bradford who had demolished a last 16 Champions League team.

Tonight’s action sees Swansea take on Middlesbrough at the Liberty Stadium.
