Aston Villa will have a shot at returning to the Premier League after seeing off Middlesbrough in the Championship play-offs semi-finals on Tuesday night.

Villa were leading 1-0 from the first leg having beat Boro at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday night thanks to Mile Jedinak's winner, and were looking to seal their win on Tuesday.

Steve Bruce's men turned in a solid if unspectacular performance at Villa Park, drawing 0-0 against Boro to book their passage to Wembley.

Villa will now take on Fulham in the Championship play-off final at the end of the month, and are potentially just 90 minutes away from a return to the Premier League.

Two years on from their Premier League relegation, Villa are now nearing a return to the top flight, and owner Tony Xia took to Twitter to celebrate their victory.

Xia was delighted to be heading to Wembley, posting a photo of the celebrations at Villa Park before fans piled in to thank the Chinese businessman for his work with the club.

After huge criticism from fans last season, fans have now been praising Xia for turning the club around, thanking him for changing their fortunes after the dismal relegation from the Premier League in 2016.
