Bradford beat Wigan in shootout
Bradford booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup after causing a major shock with a 4-2 penalty shoot-out victory at Wigan after a goalless 120 minutes.
A Latics side featuring nine changes from Saturday's Barclays Premier League victory over West Ham created a host of opportunities but could not make a breakthrough during the 90 minutes or in extra-time as their spirited npower League Two opponents held on for spot-kicks.
Shaun Maloney then blazed his penalty over and Jordi Gomez saw his saved as the visitors advanced to the last eight of the competition.
Wigan looked comfortable in the early stages and thought they had taken the lead in the 10th minute when Ivan Ramis, captain for the night, headed home Gomez's free-kick, only to see the referee's assistant raise their flag.
Bradford struggled to get into the game, but after Nahki Wells almost pounced as Ali Al Habsi rushed to clear away a poor back-pass by Ramis, the visitors seemed to grow in confidence.
Wigan almost grabbed the lead right at the end of the first half, though, when Gomez met a lofted ball into the area first time, bringing a good stop out of Duke. The hosts looked to take control of proceedings again after the break, with David Jones having a shot saved before Gomez just failed to finish from Boselli's tee-up as Bradford scrambled the ball away.
With it still being anyone's game and only just over 10 minutes of normal time remaining, Wigan boss Roberto Martinez brought on Maloney and Jean Beausejour for Callum McManaman and Redmond.
Bradford skipper Nathan Doyle then sent an effort skidding just the wrong side of Al Habsi's post and, after Boselli miscued a header in front of goal and Maloney fired wide, the contest went into extra-time.
Wigan piled on the pressure at the start of the additional period, with Duke doing well to deny Boselli, who also hit the side-netting in between a Beausejour attempt that deflected over and Gomez shot that went wide. Duke was called into action late on to keep Maloney at bay before it was confirmed that a shootout would be required.
Bradford were unerring with their spot-kicks, but Maloney ballooned his over before Duke blocked Gomez's attempt to send Wigan crashing out and the visitors through.
