Swansea reach Wembley

Congleton Guardian: Eden Hazard was sent off against Swansea, who will play Bradford in the final at Wembley Eden Hazard was sent off against Swansea, who will play Bradford in the final at Wembley

Swansea reached the first major cup final in their 100-year history as a goalless draw saw them beat Chelsea 2-0 on aggregate - but the achievement was overshadowed by a moment of madness from Eden Hazard.

With just over 10 minutes remaining of the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg, and Chelsea needing to score twice to take the tie to extra-time, the Belgian lost patience when a ball boy refused to hand over the ball after it had gone out of play for a goal-kick.

The ball boy fell to the ground as Hazard attempted to get the ball from him with the Blues forward then trying to kick it from under him but instead he appeared to make contact with the youngster and referee Chris Foy produced a red card. Demba Ba and Oscar failed to convert Chelsea's best chances, as Swansea booked a Wembley appointment with Bradford.
