Bradford: Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert says his side must make the most of home advantage if they are to stand any chance of turning around their League Cup semi-final with Bradford City.

Villa started the game strongly but were robbed of their momentum when Nahki Wells put the hosts in front in the 19th minute.
