West Brom were leading at Villa Park with fifteen minutes remaining on Saturday, although an equaliser from Conor Hourihane was followed by a Tammy Abraham penalty which means that it’s Aston Villa who sit in the box seat to reach the Championship play-off final.

To compound matters, there was a red card brandished to Dwight Gayle which means that the Baggies will be missing their star striker and it’s hard to see the Albion now get the result that will take the game to extra-time, let alone win the tie overall.

Villa ended the season very strongly and you might argue that they eventually became the best team in the entire division, with Dean Smith’s team winning ten games consecutively and their comeback at the weekend will give them renewed belief that they can make Wembley for a second consecutive season.

Tyrone Mings and Axel Tuanzebe appear to be a solid enough central defensive pairing, while Jack Grealish is likely to be the standout player, with the midfielder having earned the Man of the Match award after another sublime performance for his team.

West Brom will have to come out and attack their opponents in an attempt to restore parity to the overall scoreline, although Villa can be deadly when it comes to roving forward on the counter-attack and Smith will look for his team to plunder more goals.

The visitors will at least be confident that they can match the Baggies in terms of goal tally, although we think that West Brom might be dead and buried come the end of the match and will back Aston Villa accordingly.

Tammy Abraham has scored in five of his past six encounters and the striker can carry on plundering goals for a team who seem on an upward trajectory.
