Full Time. Bradford have won the first leg 3-1 against Premier League Aston Villa. Memorable night at Valley Parade.
Jones takes the corner from the right and McHugh beats Benteke in the air to restore the League Two side's two-goal lead.
Long ball finds the head of Bent and he flicks the ball on, via a deflection, for Weimann to beat the onrushing Duke.
Jones swings in the corner and the ball breaks loose for Wells who gets the ball back out to the taker. Jones crosses again and there is McArdle at the near post to head past Given.
Benteke still winning those flick-ons but the ball is just being hoofed up to him now as Villa run out of ideas.
Chance! N'Zogbia with another long-range shot that Duke pushes out only as far as Bent but the striker heads over from point-blank range.
Bent helps the ball forward for Weimann and he is clear of the defence but Duke is off his line to kick the ball off the Austrian and away to safety.
Have Bradford weathered the storm? They seem to be getting into this one again. Here Wells is called offside.
Superb skill from Hines to get the cross in but the contact from Hanson isn't great and the ball trickles wide.
Then Hines wins a corner that McHugh heads just over. A reminder of Bradford's threat at the other end.
N'Zogbia helps the ball towards the far post and the corner is condeded. But Duke is there to claim the subsequent cross.
Chance! Bannan with another cross from the left and Agbonlahor fires goalwards with his left foot but Duke is there again with the save.
Chance! Bannan with the cross from the left and Benteke heads the ball on goal from close range but Duke somehow saves. Quite the duel between those two.
Nearly the perfect start for Villa as Benteke wins a flick-on and then sees his shot cleared by Duke for a corner.
Half Time. That's the end of the first half of this leg, and a quarter of the tie. Bradford from League Two lead Premier League side Aston Villa thanks to Naki Wells' goal. Plenty of threat from Villa but they haven't been able to find the goal. Could Bradford do it?
Chance! Just as Villa are running out of steam here, N'Zogbia produces a great run down the right before cutting the ball back for Agbonlahor but his shot is parried away by Duke.
Wells does well to hold the ball up on the right and he lays the ball back for Hines who crosses first time for Hanson. But the big striker heads the ball down into the ground and wide of the post. Bradford having chances to double their lead here.
First signs of frustration from Villa as a pass goes astray. This is a young team and they cannot led their heads drop.
Darby takes a short throw-in and he gets the ball to Hines who cuts inside beautifully before firing a left-footed shot over Given's bar.
Chance! Cross comes in and the ball is cleared off the line! Hanson with the header and Delph blocks it.
Hines is doing very well for Bradford on the right. He twists and turns to engineer space past Bennett and then fires a fierce shot at Given that the goalkeeper can only parry.
Searching diagonal ball from Lowton for Benteke is just too strong for the big man. Not going to plan for Villa.
Wells finds space in the right channel and he attempts a ludicrously ambitious shot that only finds the crowd.
Flowing move from Villa gets the ball to Benteke in a central position and he blasts in a shot that Duke is able to palm away for a corner.
Lofted ball into the box and Hanson beats Clark in the air but can only head into the arms of Given.
Long ball hoisted into the Villa box that Given chooses not to come for but misses everyone and runs out for a goal-kick.
Wells breaks and has Hines in space and available for the crossfield ball but cannot quite find his team-mate.
Benteke heads away the corner but only as far as the edge of the box. The shot comes in and takes a deflection, falling nicely to the unmarked Wells on the left edge of the six-yard box and he tucks the ball past Given with real quality. Wells was level with the last man so it was a great call from the assistant.
Another chance for Benteke! Threaded ball through down the left channel but the forward cannot beat Duke on his weaker foot.
So much space for N'Zogbia in the middle. He runs at the Bradford defence again but his shot is tame and collected by Duke. Plenty of warnings for the home side.
Wells gets away down the right and then cuts inside on his left but can only find Given with his cross. At the other end Weimann gets away and has space to shoot but tries to find Benteke with the squared ball but sees his pass blocked.
Then it is Agbonlahor's turn to have a mazy run but he declines the shot and loses possession with a weak pass.
Phil Parkinson claims a draw would be a good result for Bradford tonight. He wants to stay in this tie for as long as possible and heap the pressure on Aston Villa.
The Mercy on Twitter: 'Comfortable 2-0 win for the Villa tonight followed by a nervy 1-1 draw in the second leg! UTV'
Darren Bent on the bench for Villa despite his goal at the weekend. Paul Lambert does look to have picked a strong team for this one. He must fancy this will be as good as over if the Premier League side can win away from home.
Simon on Twitter: 'I'm a Villa fan & I'm not counting my chickens just yet, but as long as we don't get spanked today then we're back at Wembley!'
'Neil here, I'm going for a 2-0 Villa win with a strong looking starting 11 that should see the game through.'
Adam: 'Hi, I'd like to say that even though I'm a Chelsea fan and want Bradford to go through and play Chelsea when we beat Swansea, I can now see Aston Villa winning the semi-final by about six or seven goals.'
Sean: 'I am a massive Villa fan but think Bradford will nick it 2-1 but hope I am wrong. If Villa win it will be 4-0. Hoping the night gets to Bradford.'
The Villans have progressed through eight of their previous 13 semi-finals, including in their last one against Blackburn in 2010, though they have only won two of 13 first-leg games (D7 L4).
This will be Aston Villa's 14th appearance in the League Cup semi-final, equalling the record held by Arsenal and Liverpool.
Will: 'Can't see either side keeping a clean sheet. Villa 3-2. Cracking game. Benteke (2) and Weimann.'
Calvin: 'I think the Villa boys will do themselves justice tonight. Although we have lost a lot of games, Villa are due to win a game. But with Given in goal I don't think we will keep goals from hitting the net.'
'Peter Robinson here, the ex-pat Villa fan now living in Chicago. Going for a second-half goal from Benteke as we nick the first leg 1-0. Up the Villa.'
Bradford have only once made the semi-finals of a major cup competition, beating Blackburn 3-0 in the last four of the 1911 FA Cup.
Bradford have already eliminated Premier League sides Wigan Athletic and Arsenal from the League Cup this year. No fourth-tier side has ever defeated three top-flight teams in the same League Cup competition.

Our friends at Sky Bet have the odds for this one and make Bradford 3/1 to get the win tonight. Villa are 17/20 favourites with the draw available at 13/5.
The Bantams stunned Arsenal in the last round but now the League Two club must see off Premier League opposition over two legs. They'll surely need to take a good result to Villa Park.
