Aston Villa one game away from Premier League return

Kenny Burns hoping to see play-off heartache for Derby tonight - and Aston Villa tomorrow Derby, Fulham, Villa, Middlesbrough: The state of play with 90 minutes to Wembley
Frederick Owens | 16 May, 2018, 06:27

They're in the driving seat here, having won the first leg of this semi thanks to a solitary strike from Mile Jedinak, and they've got play-off specialist Steve Bruce in their corner.

Middlesbrough visit Villa Park tonight with the tough task of overturning Saturday's 1-0 loss to Aston Villa and subsequently book a place in the Championship playoff final alongside Fulham.

At the heart of that defence was former Chelsea and England centre back John Terry who joined the club a year ago on a free transfer and whose appointment as captain appears to have had a significant impact.

After a quiet start this week, the game's first chance arrived after 19 minutes as Villa's Conor Hourihane forced Darren Randolph into a good save with a shot from the edge of the box.

The match began with a minute's applause for former Villa defender Jlloyd Samuel who died earlier on Tuesday at the age of 37 in a auto accident.

He said: "I think it's a disappointing decision from one of our top officials".

"It's a hard season, it's a long season but they've been the third and fourth best teams in the league so you have to take it on the chin".

Villa held on to claim a draw on the night and victory overall, sparking wild celebrations as their fans flooded onto the pitch at fulltime.

"They're a good football side. There's still 90 minutes to play and anything can happen", he said.

Fulham advanced after beating Derby 2-0 in their second leg on Monday, sealing a 2-1 win on aggregate.

Yet again, like the first leg, Traore let his team-mates down with a poor final ball which saw his attempts either go out for a goal kick or hit the first Villa man after such promising dribbles.
