Conor Hourihane has revealed Aston Villa players took notice of Fulham's exuberant celebrations at progressing to the Championship play-off final and chose to temper their own as 'there's more business to be done'.
Aston Villa reached the final on a goal aggregate, after Miles Jedinak's header in the first leg ensured victory.
Villa will face Fulham at Wembley on May 26 in what is often dubbed the richest game in world football due to the Premier League TV riches at stake.
"They're one of the in-form teams and missed out on [automatic qualification] the last day, so maybe there'll be a bit of disappointment".
"It'll be good - it's two big teams". The boys are different class. "Another clean sheet and a great night", Terry said.
"It was intense. I think our game plan worked very well so the manager deserves a lot credit for that".
The match began with a minute's applause for former Villa defender Jlloyd Samuel, who died earlier that day, at age 37, in a auto accident.
Boro created few clear-cut chances but nearly levelled the tie late on when Stewart Downing's 89th-minute free kick from just outside the penalty area rattled the crossbar. 'They might be slight favourites going into it, but all the best to them if they fancy themselves more than us because we'll be ready for it, that's for sure'. We finished fourth [in the Championship this season] and they came third, so it'll be a tough game. "It's hard for me to say that but that's being brutally honest".
The Claret and Blue Army are set for a showdown with the Cottagers at Wembley, with a win guaranteed to secure promotion to the Premier League. "They've got some good players but, then again, so have we", he said.
