The draw has been made and looks like:

Barnsley v Cardiff City
West Brom v Portsmouth

It still leaves the Cup wide open, with all four teams fancying their chances.  Portsmouth have been drawn against the best non-Premiership side left in the competition.  If anyone other than Portsmouth lifts the trophy, it will be the first time since West Ham beat Arsenal 1-0 in 1980 that a team outside the top flight gets their hands on the Cup.

As an aside – Luke Steele has to be the happiest person with the draw.  The Barnsley goalkeeper, is on loan from West Brom and would probably have been prevented from playing in the semi had the two clubs been drawn together.

If I had to guess I would go for a Barnsley v Portmouth final – what do you think?
