Championship play-off match report West Bromwich Albion v Aston Villa

Jack Grealish

Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion's Championship play-off semi-final on Tuesday night was a typically heated affair which eventually saw the sending off of Baggies' skipper Chris Brunt for two bookable offences.

Aston Villa's Jack Grealish scores his penalty during the shoot-out with West Brom.

As it was, the Villans were pulled back in the tie in the first half when Craig Dawson rose high in the penalty box to head Albion level on aggregate, and set up a barnstormer of a night of football.

Brunt knew what it meant for his team as soon as he walked but West Brom held out valiantly against the extra man for the remaining 40 minutes (including extra time).

Johnstone masterminded a powerful save on 88 minutes after pushing Adomah's effort wide, and made another late on to keep out McGinn and sent the game in to extra-time.

Their second leg is on Wednesday, with Leeds protecting a 1-0 lead at its Elland Road home.

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

Keeper Jed Steer put Villa in control with great saves from Mason Holgate and Ahmed Hegazi.

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. "We practice penalties, so I think I must've faced a 100 a day the last few days".

Norwich and Sheffield United were promoted automatically after finishing as the top two in the regular season.
