Bradford welcome Villa Cup semifinal draw

League Two Bradford City have been drawn against Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup two-legged semi, which will be played next month.

And Bantams boss Phil Parkinson reckons it is the perfect draw - for geographical reasons.

Parky said: "Chelsea or Swansea would have been a big strain for our fans.

"They would turn up in their numbers for sure - but a game in the Midlands after a first leg in front of a full house at Valley Parade is a great draw for us."
