Bradford City keeper Matt Duke wants to put his League Cup final performance right by reaching the playoff final this season.

Bradford City goalkeeper Matt Duke has declared that his side must bounce back from their League Cup disappointment to mount a playoff challenge.

Duke endured a day to forget at Wembley yesterday as he was sent off during a comfortable 5-0 win for Swansea City.

The 35-year-old admitted that his Wembley debut was very disappointing but wants to put things right by gaining promotion to League One via the playoffs.

He told Sky Sports News: "Today is a massive disappointment. But when we come to reflect on this in a couple of days or at the end of the season, or even in a couple of years' time we'll appreciate what a fantastic achievement it was.

"Hopefully the fans have had a great day and no matter about the result that they've enjoyed it. Fingers crossed we'll be coming back in May to give them another great day.

"If we have a good run between now and the end of the season there's no reason why we can't get back in the playoffs."

The Bantams are currently eight points from a playoff place in League Two but have at least three games in hand on most of their promotion rivals.
