Leeds United and Derby are in the other playoff semi-final.

Mason Holgate and Ahmed Hegazi failed to convert before Tammy Abraham stroked home the decisive effort in a cruel end for Jimmy Shan's side, who had Chris Brunt sent off for a second yellow card in the 80th minute.

Villa booked their place in the play-off final after going all the way to a penalty shoot-out against Albion.

Villa beat West Brom 4-3 in Tuesday's shootout after their semi-final finished 2-2 on aggregate following West Brom's 1-0 win in the second leg.

Villa laid siege to the West Brom goal in the extra 30 minutes and could have had a late penalty for handball but the 10-man hosts held firm to take it to penalties.

Steer saved his first two chances and Villa was almost ideal from the spot to move on the final, where a place in the Premier League will be on the line against either Leeds or Derby.

"All of us are very hungry and have good legs in us". "The day we knew we were in the play-offs we started working on penalties", the boyhood Villa fan, who...

Albert Adomah could have sealed it for Villa but lifted his kick over the bar and when James Morrison scored for West Brom it piled the pressure on Abraham, but the young striker found the back of the net to spark celebrations.

Villa missed out in the playoff final past year, losing 1-0 to Fulham and Grealish, who has been linked with a summer move to Tottenham, is keen to make amends in what could be his final game for the club.
