Bradford City have lost 5-0 to Swansea City in the League Cup final at Wembley.

The Bantams became the first team from the fourth tier of English football to reach a Wembley cup final but were outclassed by their Premier League opponents.

Swansea took the lead after 15 minutes thanks to Nathan Dyer before Michu added a second just before half-time.

Dyer then got his second and Swansea’s third shortly after the interval.

Jonathan De Guzman added Swansea’s fourth from the spot after an hour when Matt Duke’s foul resulted in a penalty and a red card for the Bradford keeper.

De Guzman notched his second in stoppage time to complete the rout.
