Chris Brunt's red card in the 80th minute saw West Brom play 40 minutes with 10 men, but the club managed to hold on to force the shootout.

Keeper Jed Steer put Villa in control with great saves from Mason Holgate and Ahmed Hegazi.

"There's obviously a lot of luck involved but wow - we practise penalties, so I think I must've faced 100 a day the last few days", Steer said.

The Villans will now face the victor of Thursday's semi-final between Leeds United and Derby County, with Dean Smith's men aiming to return to the Premier League after a three-year absence.
