Championship play-off final: Aston Villa hold off Derby to clinch Premier League spot


Reading time: 0 Minute

Aston Villa are back in the Premier League, after beating Derby 2-1 in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final at Wembley on Monday.

A year after losing in last season’s play-off final, Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn netted for Villa, to lead the Midlands club back into the top flight after three years away.

Jack Marriott’s goal only served as consolation for Derby.

For Frank Lampard’s team, it was another heartbreaking trip to the play-offs.

Their wait for top-flight football now stretches to 11 years and they will play in the Championship again next season.
