Villa have spent three years away from the top flight but a rampant run of late-season form propelled them into play-off contention.

Boss Dean Smith will be keen to go one step further than predecessor Steve Bruce whose side was defeated by Fulham in last season’s play-off final.

West Brom are hoping for an instant return to the Premier League despite a turbulent season at the Hawthorns.

Manager Darren Moore was sacked in March after falling away from the automatic promotion spots but caretaker boss James Shan has steadied the ship.

The Baggies garnered a reputation as a yo-yo team in the early 00’s but none of their four promotions this century have come via the play-offs.
