Leeds, Aston Villa earn narrow leads in English playoffs

Villa Smith Grealish

Aston Villa took advantage of a late collapse from West Bromwich Albion to edge a 2-1 victory over their midlands rivals in the Championship play-off semi-final first leg on Saturday.

Albion's implosion was complete when Gayle was sent off for a second yellow card late on, ruling the striker out of Tuesday's second leg at the Hawthorns. "With the quality he's got, he can go and create". But Smith has told his players to expect a more attacking approach. I expect a different game, that's for sure'.

"I won't be sat behind the ball as much as Albion were".

"We've got some wonderful attacking options and players and we may have to tweak how we play on the pitch".

Then Abraham sent Villa Park wild when he scored from the spot after Kieran Gibbs brought down Grealish.

The second leg between Leeds and Derby is on Wednesday. "To my mind, every time the ball went out he had an intent of walking towards to the ball", he said.

"I always think to myself does he ever get exhausted?"

It's certainly going to be a closely-fought encounter between the two sides when they meet again on Tuesday, and Aston Villa will be hoping they can ease those nerves with an early goal at The Hawthorns.

'So it gives Jay the opportunity to get a more central role, and he can be a big threat from there.

"It is a bonus for us that someone like him is going to be missing from the next game". "We're frustrated with that one and the momentum swings with them".
