Aston Villa and Derby are facing off in the play-off final

Aston Villa team news

Villa boss Dean Smith’s main injury concern is On-loan Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe after he limped off late in Villa’s semi-final second leg against West Brom.

Amidst the celebrations at The Hawthorns, he was piggy backed onto the pitch by Villa staff and Smith has yet to confirm the severity of the injury, but it is hoped the defender can sign off his Villa loan in style.

Thomas Carroll, Jordan Lyden and Orjan Nyland are likely to remain out with long-term injuries.

Derby team news

Scott Malone picked up a red-card in the dramatic 4-2 victory over Leeds United at Elland Road in the semi-final.

Ashley Cole will therefore make yet another Wembley appearance, and will be yet another former Chelsea great on display alongside Frank Lampard and John Terry.

Martin Waghorn and Craig Bryson face a race to feature at Wembley while David Nugent and Curtis Davies remain out.
