Swansea City kick off against Bradford City in the final of the Capital One Cup at Wembley at 4pm.

It is Swansea's first major cup final in the club's 100-year history, and they are 90 minutes - plus extra time and penalties if required - away from winning their first major cup, and qualifying for European football next season.

League Two side Bradford also have history on their minds. They have knocked out three Premier League teams already, and become the first team from the fourth tier to play in a major Wembley final.

The ITV Sport website has live updates on the action.

But for Ryan,12, who won a gold medal in table tennis at last year's British Transplant Games after his dad donated him a kidney, today will be the first time he has led his City heroes out.

The club received special permission from the Football League to have two mascots.

Bradford City football team will be in many people's thoughts as they head to Wembley to take on Swansea in the Capital One League Cup Final.

To help them on their way, Canon Andrew Williams, at Bradford Cathedral wrote this prayer.

Lord of all people and Maker of all

We give thanks for the beautiful game, for football.

As two sides compete for the Capital One Cup

We don't ask for favour, we don't ask for luck.

We ask for The Bantams to put up a good fight

To make Bradford proud and it's people unite.

Without causing a drama or making a fuss

The Tibetan spiritual leader has pronounced blessing on us

He knows what your Son has said in the past

That the last shall be first and the first shall be last.

So Lord of all people and Maker of all

May the winner at Wembley be the game of football. Amen
