West Ham United are on their way to Wembley for the first time in 31 years after doubling their first leg advantage in the opening 45 minutes here at the Boleyn Ground.
Goals from xxx and Ricardo Vaz Te have put Sam Allardyce's side firmly in the driving seat this afternoon - and surely not even West Ham can blow a 4-0 aggregate lead with just one half to play.
The Hammers opened the scoring on the quarter-hour mark when captain Kevin Nolan scored a trademark effort from just a yard out, converting a Matt Taylor corner.
And Vaz Te, who has been in scintillating form in the opening period made it 2-0 on the day with an absolute scorcher from just inside the box.
Gary O'Neil also went close to furthering United's lead on two occasions; firstly when he clipped the crossbar and secondly when he forced the save of the match so far from David Marshall.
Overall West Ham have been well worth their lead and the second half promises to be one Hell of a party. We'll have a full round-up for you at the final whistle.
