Andy Hinchcliffe has told Sky Sports that he felt Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham was bullied by West Bromwich Albion over the two legs of the play-off tie.

Villa made it to Wembley last night, but they had to do things the hard way.

West Brom’s 10 men managed to hold out and claim a 1-0 win over Villa, which took the game time spot kicks.

 

It was actually Abraham who scored the decisive penalty in the tie, as Villa booked their place at Wembley.

But Hinchcliffe was far from impressed by Villa’s top scorer’s display over the tie.

The pundit said, during Sky Sports’ live coverage: “He might have scored a penalty in the first-leg, but he really has been bullied over the past two matches.”

Abraham may not have been at his very best for Villa over the two-legs, but he showed great mental strength to step up and score the winning penalty.

Villa will now head to Wembley in the play off final for the second time in two years.

Dean Smith’s side will meet either Leeds United or Derby County in the final, as they go for promotion.
