Aston Villa hold nerve in penalty shoot-out

Jack Grealish

Jed Steer saved two spot-kicks as Aston Villa advanced to the Championship play-off final with a 4-3 penalty shoot-out triumph over a 10-man West Brom at The Hawthorns on Tuesday.

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

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).

The Moon is shrinking and generating lunar quakes
Just five years from now, NASA will send one woman and one man back to the moon, landing on the lunar body's south pole. But because the moon's surface is brittle, not flexible like grape skin, it cracked and formed slip faults as it shrank.


Craig Dawson's first-half header left the aggregate score locked at 2-2 after 120 minutes but the visitors held their nerve from 12 yards to book a trip to Wembley for the second successive season.

Dean Smith's side could not capitalise on that however, and as chances came and went for the Villans in extra time, the inevitable penalty shootout came about.

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

Sydney Harbour Bridge climate change protesters arrested
Greenpeace Australia Pacific CEO David Ritter told reporters at the scene that immediate action needs to be taken. Greenpeace confirmed on Tuesday morning all protesters who scaled the bridge are highly trained climbers.


Albert Adomah could have sealed it for Villa but lifted his kick over the bar and when James Morrison scored for West Brom it piled the pressure on Abraham, but the young striker found the back of the net to spark celebrations.

"All of us are very hungry and have good legs in us".

The Championship playoff final is regarded as the most lucrative match in world football with last year's clash between Fulham and Villa worth about £170 million (RM915.3 million) even if, as in Fulham's case, the victor is relegated after one season in the top flight.
