Derby hero Nathan Ellington insists there is no reason why The Rams cannot go on to win the Carling Cup after making the semi-finals.
Ellington fired home a last-gasp penalty at The Britannia Stadium to give Derby a 1-0 win over Stoke.
With Burnley also booking their spot in the semi-finals - there could be as few as just one Premier League side in the last-four and Ellington is now convinced Derby could win the competition.
"We would like a Premier side but perhaps it would be better to get a Championship side. I would rather play them in the final," he told Sky Sports News.
"The draw has been good to us so far and it can be even better and we can get to the final and even win it."
Ellington admits he felt little pressure in stepping up and taking the late penalty.
"It was very special, obviously very special for the supporters - to win in the last minute was the best thing to happen," he said.
"I am very confident with my penalties and I was happy to take it. I just felt it was like another penalty."
It has been 40 years since Derby last reached a cup semi-final which was also pleasing for Ellington.
"I didn't realise it has been that long since," he said.
"So it is something new for the fans after such a long time and I am sue everyone is excited about who we might get."
