Championship play-off match report Aston Villa v Middlesbrough 15 May 2018

A 0-0 scoreline was enough, because it means they win the tie 1-0 on aggregate, thanks to Mile Jedinak's goal in the first leg.

Aston Villa paid tribute to former defender Jlloyd Samuel, who died in a vehicle crash at just 37 on Tuesday, as a 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough at Villa Park booked their place in the Championship playoff final.

Traore has scored five league goals and assisted 10 others so far this term, and while he is arguably Boro's biggest threat up front, Stewart Downing and 15-goal Britt Assombalonga are also capable of wreaking havoc to Aston Villa's defence.

And if Villa knocks off Fulham on May 26, Bruce will have led two Hull City, Birmingham City, and Aston Villa into the top flight via the playoff, once more each with Hull and Birmingham via the league route.

'We've given ourselves an advantage, we're playing against a very experienced team and a very experienced manager (Tony Pulis). I think our game-plan and game setup worked superbly, so the manager deserves a lot of credit for that. "But in the second half tonight there was only one team that was going to win it".

After the tension came the overwhelming relief and unbridled joy for Aston Villa. "They've got some good players but, then again, so have we", he said.

The Cottagers beat Derby County 2-0 last night (May 14) to book their place in the final, having narrowly missed out on automatic promotion on the last day of the season. I thought Hutts (Alan Hutton) was superb over the two legs, I think he's been the best player over the two legs.

"It irks me a little bit but the teams who finished third and fourth are going to Wembley and that's justification of what they've done over the season".
