Leon Britton: Reaching the Capital One Cup final with Swansea City would be a dream
LEON Britton has admitted reaching the Capital One Cup final with Swansea City would be a "dream come true".
Wednesday's 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough saw Swansea progress to the last four of a major competition for the first time in nearly 50 years.
They last got that far in 1964 when Trevor Morris's side lost an FA Cup semi-final to Preston at Villa Park. Swansea must now overcome either Chelsea, Leeds, Bradford or Aston Villa over two legs to book a place at Wembley.
"It's massive. We had a great opportunity to make history on Wednesday," said Britton.

"The club's been here a long time, and the gaffer touched on that.
"There aren't many opportunities to progress to the final and it would be a great achievement for us.
"It would be a dream to get to the final, but we've still got 180 minutes to go.
"I'm 30 years old and I've never come this far in a competition.
"To get to the final and play for a club I've been at for a long time would be brilliant."
Swansea did enough to edge past Boro despite not producing their best performance.
In a tight game, an own goal from Seb Hines proved the difference between the sides.
"It wasn't a great game out there, but it was a case of getting the job done," added Britton.
"We scored from a set-piece, it was a bit scrappy, but we're in the semi-finals. That's all that matters really.
"We can't get too ahead of ourselves, we've still got a two-legged semi-final to get through.
"That's going to be tough. We saw Arsenal put out a strong team at Bradford and go out.
"You can't pick and choose who you want in the semi-finals.
"It could be Chelsea or it could be Bradford, who have shown they're capable of beating Premier League teams."
