KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Aston Villa paid tribute to former defender Jlloyd Samuel, who died in a vehicle crash at just 37 on Tuesday, as a 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough at Villa Park booked their place in the Championship playoff final.

Having won the first leg 1-0 courtesy of a Mile Jedinak strike, Villa showed some organised defending to hold off Boro who were looking for an immediate return to the top-flight.

Hutton looks likely to start in the play off final when Villa meet Fulham at Wembley in two weekends' time.

They will now face Fulham for a place in the Premier League.

At the heart of that defence was former Chelsea and England centre back John Terry who joined the club previous year on a free transfer and whose appointment as captain appears to have had a significant impact. The boys are different class. It was important we didn't concede. "One more step and it'll be the dream".

"Unbelievable, incredible, the support, the lads, the dressing room is unbelievable".

Putin to open mega bridge linking Crimea to Russian Federation
Originally, the bridge was expected to be built before 2018 and put into operation in the summer of 2019. On Tuesday Putin drove an orange Kamaz truck across the bridge as he opened the road to auto traffic.

"There's a great team spirit among the boys".

"There's not much in the teams but I don't think they've had a shot on target in the two games".

"It irks me a little bit but the teams who finished third and fourth are going to Wembley and that's justification of what they've done over the season".

"In both games you need things to go for you and tonight there are one or two decisions which have not gone for us".

Hutton was backed by Steve Bruce in the play-offs, with the Scot given a man-marking role to do on Middlesbrough's Adama Traore.
