Neil Warnock has set his sights on winning the Capital One Cup after his Leeds team took the scalp of another Premier League team in the shape of Southampton. Warnock has often made light of his daughter Amy's request for him to win the competition this season, but after last night's 3-0 success,

getting to Wembley does not seem as fanciful as it once did.

Leeds are one of three non-Premier League teams left in the competition and a chance of at least a last-four berth is now a possibility, especially if they get a home draw. They have now seen off Everton and Southampton at Elland Road.

Warnock, who was a regular visitor to the old Wembley but has never manned the touchlines of the new one, is starting to sharpen his focus. "I want to win it," he said after goals from Michael Tonge and El-Hadji Diouf and a Luciano Becchio penalty saw off Southampton .
