Aston Villa booked their spot in the Championship play-off final on Tuesday, and they have Jed Steer to thank for his penalty heroics.
Steer saved penalties from both Mason Holgate and Ahmed Hegazi, which saw the Villans run out comfortable win in the end.
Former Aston Villa winger, Robert Snodgrass took to Twitter to praise Dean Smith’s side after they ran out winners at The Hawthorns.

Snodgrass was on loan at Villa Park last season, where he made 43 appearances in total for the Villans, who eventually suffered heartbreak at Wembley in last year’s play-0ff final.
He’s since established himself as a regular in the West Ham team and will be hoping he can continue to impress in the Premier League for future seasons.
Villa will face either Leeds United or Derby County in the play-off final later this month, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side holding a one goal advantage heading into the second-leg at Elland Road on Wednesday evening.
The Villans will be hoping to go one step better than last season after they were defeated by Fulham in the play-off final last season.
It’s good to see him still supporting his former side.
Snodgrass enjoyed a good spell with Villa, but he evidently has the ability to be playing in the Premier League, which he’s currently doing with Aston Villa.
I can see Villa pipping Leeds to winning promotion back into the Premier League this season.
