Jedinak's Villa through to play-off final after shootout win over West Brom

Jack Grealish

Chris Brunt was left devastated after being sent off in West Bromwich Albion's Championship play-off semi-final second leg against Aston Villa - and his misery was compounded by Jonathan Kodjia.

Dean Smith's side could not capitalise on that however, and as chances came and went for the Villans in extra time, the inevitable penalty shootout came about.

West Brom won 1-0 on the night at the Hawthorns to level the tie at 2-2 on aggregate thanks to Craig Dawson's first half header.

Tammy Abraham - Villa's striker on loan from English Premier League club Chelsea - netted the winning penalty to send the Birmingham club into the playoffs final for the second consecutive year.

Jonathan Kodjia, meanwhile, will presumably be working on his dab in preparation for the final on May 27 at Wembley.

Leeds United and Derby County contest the other play-off semi-final tonight at Elland Road, with Leeds holding a 1-0 advantage from the first leg. "All of us are very hungry".

Goalkeeper Jed Steer was Aston Villa's hero with two penalty saves in the shootout.

Villa's hopes for Premier League promotion will now rest on a May 27 date with either Leeds United or Derby County, the victor of which will be decided at Elland Road on Wednesday.

"There's obviously a lot of luck involved but wow - we practise penalties, so I think I must've faced 100 a day the last few days", Steer said.

The Villans will now face the victor of Thursday's semi-final between Leeds United and Derby County, with Dean Smith's men aiming to return to the Premier League after a three-year absence.
