Aston Villa fans delighted with 33-year-old on Twitter: "Colossus", "Outstanding"

Aston Villa secured a 1-0 victory in the first leg at the Riverside Stadium before playing out a stalemate at Villa Park for a place in the final.

Now Villa will face Fulham on May 26.

Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce is your guy if you want to get out of the Championship, and is one win away from bringing a fifth side into the Premier League.

He said: "Eighteen or 19 months ago this club was in a mess but the experienced players have done the job for us and we're delighted about that".

"It was two very good performances", the former Chelsea and England captain told Sky Sports News.

"Unbelievable, incredible, the support, the lads, the dressing room is unbelievable".

Television footage appeared to show a person on a motorcycle driving into the grounds of a church before a bomb was detonated. The three families are believed to members of the pro-Isis Indonesian militant group, Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD).

"We just shaded it over the two games, with a goal from a set-piece", Bruce said.

"There is a great team spirit among the boys".

Randolph then came to the fore as he made two fine saves from Lewis Grabban before getting fingertips to a long-range effort from Jack Grealish.

Stewart Downing hit the bar for Middlesbrough late on but they did not register a shot on target. In the 87th minute, as Middlesbrough were pouring forward in search of an equaliser, Villa goalkeeper Sam Johnstone appeared to step out of his penalty area and make a save with his hands in an illegal position.

"It irks me a little bit but the teams who finished third and fourth are going to Wembley and that's justification of what they've done over the season".

"The boys have been superb and we're off to Wembley, one more to go".
