Winger Albert Adomah believes Aston Villa will win their promotion showdown with Fulham and return to the Premier League.

Villa face the Cottagers in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final at Wembley on May 26 after beating Middlesbrough 1-0 on aggregate on Tuesday.

They drew 0-0 at Villa Park following a 1-0 win at the Riverside on Saturday and Adomah is confident they can end their two-year exile from the top flight.

"There'll be a lot of expectation but hopefully the best team will win - and I believe that will be us," said the 30-year-old, who played in Middlesbrough's play-off final defeat to Norwich in 2015.

"Fulham haven't been in the Premier League for a long time but Aston Villa were only recently relegated. Hopefully, at the second time of asking, we can come out on top. It'll be good - it's two big teams. We finished fourth and they came third and it'll be a tough game. They're one of the form teams and missed out on the last day so maybe there'll be a bit of disappointment.

"We knew we'd be in the play-offs throughout and hopefully we can give them a challenge."
