Aston Villa will attempt to mount a comeback tonight as they take on Bradford City at Villa Park, with the Villans 3-1 down from the home leg.
Bradford City may have won a remarkable 3-1 victory in the home leg, but they now face an inevitable onslaught as they attempt to get out of Villa Park alive to seal a historic progression to Wembley.
The Bantams could be just 90 minutes away from completing a remarkable run to reach Wembley, with a final against either Chelsea or Swansea City up for grabs, and will look to defend their two-goal lead from the first leg.
Villa, meanwhile, will be determined to overturn the deficit. Manager Paul Lambert has spoken of the potential of a victory to turn around their poor form in the league, stating:" If we get through, the confidence will be great. The feeling around the club will be massive. It will be a great thing. It can definitely play a huge part in the season turning."
Since the away goals rule in the League Cup only applies after extra-time has been played, a 2-0 win will not be enough to progress in ordinary time for Aston Villa, although it would see them go through after 120 minutes.
