GOOOAAAALLL! Derby back in it. The ball breaks for Marriott, who places it into the corner. 2-1!

80' 

SCRAMBLE! Waghorn almost directs the ball goalwards before Villa just about clear. He's changed the game and Villa are knocking on the door.

78' 

CHANCE! El Ghazi and Grealish break but can't make up their minds. The Villa captain should have shot really. That could have been the game.

75' 

CHANCE! Marriot shoots just wide from a Derby corner/ He could have halved the deficit. What an opportunity.

74'

GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLL!!!! El Ghazi nods home El Mohamedy's cross. Villa take the lead at a crucial time. 1-0.

41' 

Bennett wins Derby their first corner, which Keogh heads over.

37' 

CHANCE! Finally a sniff for Mount and he unleashes the first shot on target in the game, but it is straight at Jed Steer.

34' 

A second driving run by El Ghazi sees him enter the box, and though Derby manage to clear, they look terrified of the winger.

33' 

CHANCE! First opening for Abraham, on the turn. He drives into the box, but he can't keep his shot down.

31' 

Bennett beats Tuanzebe in a footrace, but again Mings is there to clear the danger.

30' 

Derby beginning to get a foothold as they find Wilson a little more. No real chances to speak of though.

  • Anwar El Ghazi
    Yellow cardAnwar El GhaziAston VillaEl Ghazi booked for Villa. Free kick in a good position for Derby.
27'

El Ghazi booked for Villa. Free kick in a good position for Derby.

25' 

Derby lacking width, Cole isn't getting forward in the way Bogle is and that is making them easy to contain.

21' 

Villa build again, but Adomah's cross is poor. After recycling the ball, McGinn then chips wide again. Dean Smith's side need to find that killer ball.

19' 

Derby still feeling their way into this one as Bogle fails to control Huddlestone's pass. Wilson picks the ball up, but his cross is poor.

17' 

McGinn forces another corner, and shoots wide after Derby clear.

14' 

El Ghazi breaks really well down the left after Bogle was caught out of position. Richard Keogh saves the day with a sliding tackle, before Derby clear the resulting corner. It wasn't convincing again, though.

12' 

Grealish is linking well in midfield as usual, but he is penalised for a foul on Mount. Didn't look to be much in that.

10' 

Tom Huddlestone plays the ball forward for Mason Bennett, but Tyrone Mings reads the situation brilliantly and clears.

7' 

CHANCE! Derby goalkeeper Roos' kick is poor and straight at Grealish, who drives forward and shoots over. Perhaps he should have done better, but Villa have started the better here.

6' 

CHANCE! Derby make a mess of defending the corner, and it falls straight to Axel Tuanzebe, but he miskicks and the Rams escape.

5' 

Free kick to Villa in a good position, Connor Hourihane over it. He plays short to Anwar El Ghazi. Corner.

2' 

McGinn twists and turns near the Derby box, but Cole dispossesses him and is then fouled.

  • 1st Half
1' 

Aston Villa won both league games between these two, and they kick off here. Expect an open midfield battle.

14:58 

National anthem done, handshakes undertaken. The players are in position for a huge afternoon!

14:53 

The teams are entering the fray... £170million on the line.

14:45 

15 minutes to kick off! The atmosphere is building at Wembley!

14:39 

A look back at some great playoff final moments of the past.

14:37 

38-year-old Ashley Cole could be making his final appearance as a professional. It is also his 34th game at Wembley. His experience could be priceless for The Rams today.

14:32 

Derby's mascot for the day is a rather special young lady.

14:25 

Aston Villa's form is fantastic coming into this one, having won 10 games on the bounce. That run started on March 2, with a 4-0 win over Derby.

14:21 

Today of course sees John Terry, Villa assistant, and Frank Lampard, Derby boss, go head to head. The pair are obviously great friends having spent 12 years together at Chelsea.

14:13 

Not since 2010 has a team in Derby's position reached the Premier League. Could that change today?

14:12 

Can Villa go all the way today?

14:05 

Jack Grealish starts for Villa alongside John McGinn, while Albert Adomah starts out wide. Derby have Mason Mount and Harry Wilson in midfield, while Tom Huddlestone is in for Duane Holmes.

14:00
