Ahhh it’s almost time – Bank Holiday Monday at Wembley with Aston Villa looking to wipe the smile off Frank Lampard’s face and leave Derby County crying into their Championship Play-Off Final beers come the fulltime whistle.
We know how it feels, 12 months ago we were drowning our sorrows and Derby have had their own Play-Off heartbreaks in recent years as well, so you can’t imagine both teams won’t be fully up for this especially with over £100million up for a reward to the winner.
Speaking to the media in his pre-game press conference this week, head coach Dean Smith confirmed that he did have a number of selection headaches to deal with as he gave an injury update.
Only goalkeeper Orjan Nyland has been ruled out of the game, everyone else has been passed fit and raring to go for the tie.
