Bantams 3-2 Burton (AET)

Capital One Cup 3rd Round

Valley Parade

Bradford came from behind, with almost certain defeat and exit from the League Cup on, to beat Burton after extra time to book a place in round four of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

With 30-minutes on the clock Burton had one foot in round four with goals from Billy Kee (18) and Aaron Webster (29) putting them in the ascendency, the scoreline remaining nil-two at the break.

Bradford couldn't force way through until the final ten-minutes when Nahki Wells (83) gave them hope, and it was Wells (90) again in the last minute that forced a dramatic equaliser and sent the game into extra time with it tied at two-two.

The first half of extra time passed without any change to the scoreline, so with time running out in the second a penalty shootout seemed highly likely.

This was until Stephen Darby (115) produced a winner for The Bantams five-minutes from time to complete the comeback with a 3-2 win!
