Aston Villa fans loved what Kodjia did when Brunt was sent off for West Brom last night

Chris Brunt’s red card was the turning point of Aston Villa’s play-off semi-final against West Brom last night.

Aston Villa will battle for a place in the Premier League in the Championship play-off final for the second straight season after seeing off West Bromwich Albion last night.

In truth, Villa were the dominant side across both legs, with the Baggies only really succeeding in knocking their visitors out of their passing rhythm sporadically across 210 minutes.

But they were doing that when experienced Northern Irish international and club captain Chris Brunt dived into two stupid tackles within minutes of each other and got himself sent off.

From there on in, it was all Villa and perhaps Dean Smith will be disappointed that his side didn’t get the job done in normal and extra time.

Supporters absolutely loved the humour amid the tension of the play-off push and we’ve put together the best of the reaction from Twitter…
