Curtis Good

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Club Reporter

 

United youngster Curtis Good played a key role in helping League Two outfit Bradford City beat Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg on Tuesday night.

The Australian defender was instrumental in the Bantams' shock 3-1 victory at Valley Parade, which saw Nahki Wells, Rory McArdle and Carl McHugh net against their Premier League opponents.

Deployed at left-back, Good played the full 90 minutes, coming up against the likes of full international forwards Christian Benteke, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Andreas Weimann and Darren Bent over the course of a memorable evening.

The result leaves Bradford just 90 minutes away from a Wembley final where - if they see off Villa in the second leg in a fortnight's time - they could face either Chelsea or Swansea City.

Good is currently on loan in West Yorkshire until the beginning of February, and has made five appearances since his arrival in November.
