Aston Villa boss wants deal for veteran defender

Aston Villa boss wants deal for veteran defender

Villa hold a 1-0 first leg lead thanks to Mile Jedinak's goal but Pulis revealed the mood among the Boro camp remains very upbeat.

That was the closest either side came to changing the scoreline as they now switch attention to the second leg at Villa Park on Tuesday.

"The boys were different class".

Villa had been considered favourites to advance from the tie after finishing seven points above Middlesbrough in the table and they cleared the first hurdle with a clean sheet intact.

ASTON Villa boss Steve Bruce backed his players to handle the occasion as they bid to keep their promotion hopes alive tonight.

"But the boys have been superb and we're off to Wembley with one more to go".

Boro created few clear-cut chances but nearly levelled the tie late on when Stewart Downing's 89th-minute free kick from just outside the penalty area rattled the crossbar.

The remarkable exchange saw a distraught Corcoran forced to hand his goalkeeper's shirt to defender Oisin McEntee. The penalty was forced to be retaken, which Redan did to see the Dutch advance to the semis.

'We've given ourselves an advantage, we're playing against a very experienced team and a very experienced manager (Tony Pulis).

"We got beat by a set play which was really disappointing".

"It's a hard season, it's a long season but they've been the third and fourth best teams in the league so you have to take it on the chin".

The home fans erupted in wild celebrations at fulltime and flooded onto the pitch to join the players.

Traore has scored five league goals and assisted 10 others so far this term, and while he is arguably Boro's biggest threat up front, Stewart Downing and 15-goal Britt Assombalonga are also capable of wreaking havoc to Aston Villa's defence.

'The ones we have brought in: [Ahmed] Elmohamady, John Terry, Mile Jedinak, all people who have bought the T-shirt and you know they will not get fazed. "We're going to Wembley, let's enjoy it".
