Leeds, Aston Villa earn narrow leads in English playoffs

Grealish has not been on the losing side for Villa since October 26

Things got worse for West Brom on the day and in the context of the tie with the sending off of top scorer Gayle, who received his marching orders for a second yellow card and will now miss Tuesday's second leg. And when it came to the spot kick, there was no mistake from the striker. He was evidently grown in confidence with each passing game and his ability with the ball at his feet will keep him in Smith's side for the play offs. 'We've got to go back home and finish the job off as best we can'.

Dean Smith's side trailed to Dwight Gayle's first half opener at Villa Park, but they recovered thanks to an inspired from highly-rated midfielder Jack Grealish. "That's how we want to approach games and how the players know I want to approach games".

"I just focused on the keeper thinking: "it is me and you here".

Jay Rodriguez had earlier hit the bar and Albion looked like holding on until the 75th minute when Hourihane netted from 20 yards.

Villa won a penalty four minutes later when midfielder Jack Grealish was brought down by defender Kieran Gibbs and Abraham, on loan from Chelsea, held his nerve to slot the ball in for the victor.

Albion's woes were compounded with two minutes left when, already on a yellow card, Gayle slid in to reach James Morrison's cross but clattered Steer and saw red.

The second leg between Leeds and Derby is on Wednesday.

The two Egypt worldwide started the game and played the full 90 minutes at the Villa Park as both sides eyeing a return to the Premier League. He's obviously a big player for us, that's obviously a big frustration.

"When people believe in you it gives you that extra confidence". Albion have a chance at the Hawthorns, but they will need to improve massively.

He added: "That's the approach we're going to have to have. We're frustrated with that one and the momentum swings with them".
