Phil Parkinson believes that it would be "great for football" if Swansea City are Bradford City's League Cup final opponents.

Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson has said that he wants to face Swansea City in the final of the League Cup.

The League Two club defeated Premier League outfit Aston Villa 4-3 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

"I think a Swansea City against Bradford City final would be great for football," he told BBC Sport.

"These competitions are normally always won by the big teams so it would be great for us to meet them. We'll go there as underdogs and we will definitely enjoy it."

Swansea will head into the semi-final second-leg clash against Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday 2-0 up from their win at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago.
