AET (York City win 4 - 2 on penalties)
Attendance: 4,201 (inc 2,006 visitors)
The Bantams were knocked out on penalties by Sky Bet League 2 side York City after a dramatic night of Capital One Cup football at Bootham Crescent.
York substitute Josh Carson slammed home the winning penalty for the hosts in the shoot-out after Tony McMahon and Christopher Routis had earlier seen their efforts from the spot saved.
Routis initially gave Phil Parkinson's men the side the lead of the round 1 tie midway into the first period with a fine volley but a penalty from Luke Summerfield early after the restart levelled things up.
Alan Sheehan fired over the bar with his own penalty later in the second period before York looked set to win it in normal time when James Berrett crashed home a free-kick with only five minutes to go.
City substitute James Hanson took the game into an extra period, however, when he struck in the final minute of injury time to make the score 2-2.
A goalless period of extra-time saw the tie go to penalties, which were to be taken in front of the York City fans behind one of the goals.
Into the shoot-out, City 'keeper Ben Williams saved Jake Hyde's penalty and nearly kept out Reece Thompson's kick but Carson's winner condemned the Bantams to their first penalties lost in ten encounters.
