  • Aston Villa news: John Terry issues 'dream' statement after Middlesbrough win

Villa will now go on to face Fulham in the Championship play-off final after beating Boro 1-0 over two legs.

At the heart of that defence was former Chelsea and England centre back John Terry who joined the club previous year on a free transfer and whose appointment as captain appears to have had a significant impact. "But the boys have been superb and we're off to Wembley with one more to go".

But his hopes of a fifth promotion from the second tier remain intact - and over the two legs Villa's progression was merited. If we bring our A-game to Villa Park and we get the breaks and we get the run of the ball - which I don't think we did have on Saturday - then who knows?

Going up against a stern Aston Villa side with the third best defence in the Championship, conceding just 42 goals in 47 games before the game while also being marshalled by John Terry, the exciting winger was a tough man to keep quiet until he had to make a decision. Now Terry is a Villa colleague with Bruce saying the 37-year-old defender has helped neutralise a "toxic" dressing room.

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

Stewart Downing hit the bar for Middlesbrough late on but they did not register a shot on target.

Villa are 5/4 (2.25) to win in 90 minutes or 12/5 (3.4) to record a draw, with either outcome booking their place in the play-off final.

But the success they craved to extend their season to a Wembley appointment frustratingly eluded them last night on an occasion when the hesitant hosts were ripe for the taking.

Middlesbrough, meanwhile, are 5/2 (3.5) to win the second leg - the flawless time to get their first victory against the Midlanders since 2008.
