Leeds and Derby are in the other playoff semi-final.

"It's no good getting to Wembley and falling at the final hurdle again, so fingers crossed", Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, who converted his penalty, told Sky Sport.

West Brom was without suspended star striker Dwight Gayle but got a goal from Craig Dawson in the 29th minute to draw level.

Villa went about regaining their advantage, and proceedings looked to be heading back in their favour when Baggies captain Chris Brunt was sent off 10 minutes from full time.

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).

Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer made sure he was the hero on the evening by saving the first two West Brom penalties, and although the Birmingham based side had a wobble towards the end of the scheduled spot kicks, they eventually sealed their spot at Wembley.

"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.
