    There would have been astronomical odds on the Swans and Bantams making it to Wembley, and even at the semi-final stage a Chelsea against Aston Villa final looked a far more likely line-up for Sunday's showpiece. Even though it will be the first major cup final in Swansea's history, the Welsh club are well aware the majority of neutrals will be firmly rooting for their League Two opponents, who are the first side from the fourth tier to reach this stage of the competition since Rochdale in 1962. That means a change of mindset is necessary for a side who have relished the tag of underdogs since securing promotion to the top flight in 2011.
