Bradford's Phil Parkinson 'pinches himself' over League Cup run

Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson admits being in the League Cup semi-final is "beyond his wildest dreams" and he is having to pinch himself to believe it is real.

The League Two side, who beat Arsenal in the quarter-final, host Aston Villa in the first-leg on Tuesday and Parkinson is hopeful his side will "do themselves justice".

Parkinson believes Bradford "deserve" to be in the last four, but says Villa will have to be "well below their best" if his side are to have a chance of reaching the final.
