LONDON - Bradford manager Phil Parkinson insists his League Two underdogs can pull off one of the all-time great giant-killings when they face Premier League side Swansea in the League Cup final today.
Parkinson's footballers have already eliminated three top-flight teams on the road to Wembley and the minnows are confident of adding Swansea to an impressive list of scalps that includes Arsenal, Aston Villa and Wigan.
Swansea are firm favourites to win the trophy, but former Charlton boss Parkinson sees no reason why his collection of unheralded journeymen can't upset the formbook one more time.
With Bradford currently 11th in English football's fourth tier, Parkinson's team have only slender hopes of a promotion challenge, so the City boss is happy to admit he is focusing all his attention of winning at Wembley, which would bring not only the club's first major silverware since the 1911 FA Cup but also a place in next season's Europa League.
"All along the league has been our priority. I cannot hide away from that," he said. "But we are in the final at Wembley and have a chance of getting into Europe.
