Aston Villa’s fine resurgence in the second half of the 2018/19 campaign under the charge of head coach Dean Smith got a little bit more exciting this week as we booked our place in the Championship Play-Off Final for a second successive year having taken a penalty victory over West Bromwich Albion in the Semi-Final stage.

It was a topsy turvy affair as you’d expect from a game of that magnitude, let alone the derby element it carried, but we won through and that’s all history will remember.

One man who would’ve enjoyed the game was Australian Beard Mile Jedinak.

Having received plenty of criticism as he played out of position in defence at the start of the year, he only made eight appearances for Smith in the second half of the year with injury sidelining him, but he definitely played his part on Tuesday evening.

Coming into the fray from the substitutes bench in the 121st minute, Jedinak made his one touch count, and it was a massive touch as he rifled the ball into the back of the net from 12 yards in the shoot out.

Topping his goal was probably the stare towards the fans after he scored.
