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

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

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

Villa came into the second leg of their semi-final tie leading 2-1.

Villa will play Leeds or Derby for a chance to seal a spot in the Premier League.

The 34-year-old's crucial cameo role didn't go unnoticed by fans, who flooded social media to praise the Aussie legend.

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.

West Brom's evening turned sour on 80 minutes when veteran midfielder Chris Brunt saw red for a lunging challenge on McGinn.

"There's obviously a lot of luck involved but wow", Steer told Sky Sports.

"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.

Steer saved his first two chances and Villa was almost flawless 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.

He did not, however, received any sympathy from Aston Villa substitute Jonathan Kodjia, who took the opportunity to - very kindly - point his opponent in the direction of the tunnel as he walked past.

Leeds hold a 1-0 first-leg lead over Frank Lampard's outfit.

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.

"It's no good getting to Wembley and falling at the final hurdle again, so fingers crossed".

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