Aston Villa held their nerve as they kept out Middlesbrough to set up a Championship play-off final against Fulham at Wembley while inching one step closer to an English Premier League (EPL) return.
Stewart Downing’s 89th-minute free-kick against the bar was as close as Boro came to forcing extra time.
But Villa held on to win the play-off semi-final thanks to Mile Jedinak’s first-leg header.
It came on a night when the club paid tribute to former player Jlloyd Samuel, who died in a car crash on Wednesday.
