Villa v Bradford: Agbonlahor - We'd love to get to Wembley


Gabby Agbonlahor admits Villa would love to get to Wembley - but insists Bradford will be no pushovers tonight.

Agbonlahor is confident Villa can see it through to the final of the Capital One Cup and secure a showpiece at the capital's greatest football venue.

But he knows the Bantams will be heavyweight opponents this evening, particularly given their 3-1 first-leg lead.

He said: "We know what we've got to do to get a result.

"We'll be coming out of the traps quick and we'll be hungry and up for it.

"We know it is going to be a great atmosphere and hopefully the fans can be the 12th man and help us through.

"I remember the semi-final against Blackburn three years ago and the atmosphere at Villa Park that night was immense.

"We are going to need an atmosphere like that again to help us through.

"I am sure it will be a great - everyone has got flags for the game!

"If Villa fans can give us anything like the support against Blackburn, then hopefully we can get the result.

"It is not going to be easy. Bradford will be dangerous on the counter-attack and we will respect them.

"We know it is going to be tough. Bradford showed they are a decent side.

"But we've got to go into the game with the confidence from the West Brom game in terms of the way we attacked.

"Everyone loves to get to Wembley. It is going to be really tough but if we can do what we did at The Hawthorns and defend better at set pieces, we've got every chance.

"In the first leg we had a few chances too. Hopefully we can put the chances away on Tuesday."
