Jack Grealish on reaching Play-Off Final: I truly believe we can get promoted

Jack Grealish says it’s full focus on the Play-Off Final now as he looks to help get Aston Villa back to the Premier League.

Grealish praised opponents West Brom for the challenge they posed to the claret and blue troops in the last four encounter.

He’s now relishing a return to Wembley and wants to use the heartache from the loss to Fulham last time out to help fire his beloved team to the top-flight. 

He said: “It’s massive to get there again. 

“I was part of it last time. We know how it feels to lose. I have the experience of it. 

“It’s no good going on a good run and then going to Wembley and falling at the final hurdle again. I truly believe we can get promoted.

“We will enjoy our few days off now and then get prepared for the Final.”

On the Baggies second leg game itself, he added: “We got here and West Brom put on a good performance. They made it hard for us. It was a tough game. The crowd made it tough with the atmosphere. 

“But thankfully we’re on the way to Wembley. If I’d chosen a way to do it, it would have been on penalties. It makes it that little bit sweeter. 

“It makes it that extra bit sweeter doing it in front of our away fans, too. They were out in full force as always.”
