Bradford chairman Lawn proud ahead of history-making night at Villa

Bradford City joint chairman Mark Lawn is well aware that Tuesday night's Capital One Cup semi-final will be no simple task.

The League Two Bantams are gunning to become the first club from the bottom division of the Football League to make it through to the league cup final when they face Aston Villa at Villa Park with a 3-1 lead and Lawn is feeling extremely proud ahead of what could be another history-making night.

"It's been incredible," Lawn told Press Association Sport. "You've got to look at where we've come from, where we are in the league. The effort has been amazing.

"The backroom staff and the cleaning ladies down at the training ground, I'd like to say a big thank you from the fans and the club.

"It's been beyond our wildest dreams. A very close friend of mine who sat next to me in the first leg said the return at Villa Park is our Wembley final.

"That's the way I'll be approaching it. My head says anything else is a bonus."
