HAMILTON, Bermuda (CMC):Bermudian striker Nahki Wells has described reaching next month's English League Cup final with giant-killers Bradford City as the "best feeling in the world".
Wells, 22, told the Royal Gazette newspaper he sensed something special about his team's current squad at the start of the season.
His hunch proved correct as League Two Bradford completed a 4-3 aggregate win against Aston Villa earlier this week to set up a final showdown with Premier League side Swansea, who knocked out Chelsea at Wembley Stadium in London on Thursday.
Bradford, whose manager Phil Parkinson said he was in "dream land" after reaching the final, had earlier beaten out two other Premier clubs in Wigan Athletic and Arsenal.
Bradford, the first fourth-tier side to reach a major English cup final for 51 years, won the first leg 3-1 at Valley Parade before losing the second leg at Villa Park 2-1.
"It's great to be a part of this history-making team," said Wells, the Bantams' top scorer with 17 goals so far this season.
"I had a good feeling at the beginning of the season that it was something good about this squad. We have a group of players that are capable of achieving a lot in football. It's a young squad and to make it to the final as a fourth division side is amazing.
"I'm looking forward to the future with this squad and happy to be in the situation we're in. We're in a strong position in the league (10th) and in an even better position in a major domestic cup final so the future looks bright for the club."
Wells is now excited about the prospect of playing in next month's League Cup final at Wembley.
He was denied the chance of playing at the stadium two years ago during his stint at League One club Carlisle when he did not even make the bench for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final.
"I didn't get the chance to play previously at Wembley with Carlisle but that cup is no comparison to this and so I'm on a high," he said.
His grandparents Bobby and Sandra Wells plan to be at Wembley to cheer him on.
