League Two side Bradford City taken on Swansea City in the League Cup final at Wembley, looking to pull off the biggest upset in the history of this 53-year old competition.
Where to Watch Live
Kick-off is set for 4pm GMT. Live coverage is available on Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 1 HD, Sky Sports 3D, Sky Sports 1 Ireland, Sky Go and BBC Radio 5 Live providing live coverage in the UK.
The game marks Swansea's first appearance in a major cup final, while it is Bradford's first chance at a major trophy since their 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the FA Cup final of 1911.
Both teams have defied the odds on their journey to Wembley. Michael Laudrup's side overcame holders Liverpool at Anfield in the fourth round, before their semi-final success over European champions Chelsea. Meanwhile, the Bantams have knocked out three Premier League sides on their way to the final, including the remarkable quarter-final triumph over Arsenal. Phil Parkinson's men are only the second fourth-tier team in the history of English football to reach the League Cup final. The last was Rochdale, who lost 3-0 to Norwich City in 1962.
However, both clubs come into the decider on the back of a poor run of form. The Swans have won only two of their last eight games in all competitions and were hammered 5-0 at Anfield last week, while the Bantams have won just one league game in 2013, making their cup run all the more unbelievable.
Swansea are indisputably strong favourites as both teams head into the final. A place in the Europa League awaits the winners, with Bradford only 90 minutes away from a possible fixture next season that could see them facing 2010 European champions Inter Milan.

Bradford City: Defender Rory McArdle (ankle) returned to training earlier this week but has a late test lined up to prove his fitness. Meanwhile, striker Andy Gray is ineligible after featuring for Leeds United in the early stages of the competition. Otherwise, the Bantams have no concerns and are expected to name the same line-up that started both legs in the semi final against Aston Villa.
Probable Line-up (4-4-2): Duke; Darby, McArdle, McHugh, Good; Atkinson, G Jones, Doyle, Hines; Wells, Hanson
Swansea City: Laudrup has a near-full strength squad to choose from, with Chico Flores and long-term absentee Neil Taylor (both ankle) being the only players sidelined for this tie. The Swans are expected to field a familiar line-up at Wembley, after resting most of their key players against Liverpool last week, meaning the likes of Michu, Wayne Routledge, Ashley Williams, Angel Rangel and Nathan Dyer are all set to start.
Probable Line-up (4-4-1-1): Tremmel; Rangel, Monk, Williams, Davies; Dyer, Ki, de Guzman, Routledge; Hernandez; Michu
