Aston Villa reaches Championship playoff final

Aston Villa reaches Championship playoff final

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.

"They're a good football side".

Wolves were the runaway leaders in the Championship this season.

Aston Villa are now preparing for tonight's huge game at home to Middlesbrough in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi Final second Leg. Villa won the first leg 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium thanks to Mile Jedinak's early header, giving them a massive advantage ahead of the second leg at Villa Park.

The two teams will be competing for a chance to play Fulham in the final at Wembley after the Cottagers overturned a first leg deficit to beat Derby County 2-1 on aggregate, winning 2-0 at home on Monday evening.

But, Villa fans may not be happy to hear that only six of those ended up gaining promotion to England's top flight. "If I get my way there will certainly be a contract offered to him". "We're going to Wembley, let's enjoy it".

Weekly Coca-Cola FEMSA, SAB de CV (NYSE:KOF) Ratings
Capital International Sarl decreased Ryanair Holdings Plc Adr stake by 18,370 shares to 83,050 valued at $8.65 million in 2017Q4. Morgan Stanley downgraded The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) on Friday, December 16 to "Equal-Weight" rating.

The young winger needs to start taking games by the scruff of their necks if he is to prove himself worthy of the big-name links. Cardiff also secured automatic promotion, pipping Fulham to second place on the final day.

As a team, Villa made 29 total clearances against Boro, with James Chester contributing the most with seven.

The game itself was gripped with tension from the outset and there were periods in the first half when Villa seemed to be in danger of getting too caught up in the occasion. Boro boss Tony Pulis said: 'Obviously if there's any chance of Dani playing, he's going to play'.

Boro spent around £50million in the summer to chase an instant return to the Premier League after last year's relegation, but came up short.

Aston Villa players celebrate a win.
