Southampton have eased past West Brom to seal their place in the Championship play-off final, winning 3-1 on aggregate.

The two sides met at the Hawthorns in the first leg on Sunday, drawing 0-0. It meant that everything was left to play for at St. Mary's, where the Saints had the better of the first 45 minutes without really testing the Baggies.

That all changed after the break as they took the lead, pouncing on a defensive mistake as David Brooks set up Will Smallbone. The midfielder took aim from just inside the area, firing in at the near post to make it 1-0 just four minutes after the restart.

West Brom improved soon after, but arguably should've given away a penalty shortly after falling behind. The hosts doubled their lead with 78 minutes on the clock, however, as former Ipswich Town midfielder Flynn Downes set up Adam Armstrong to make it 2-0.

Southampton wrapped up the win with five minutes remaining as Tom Fellows brought down Ryan Manning in the box, allowing Armstrong to bag his brace from the spot.

Cedric Kipre headed home from a corner deep into stoppage time, but it was too little, too late.

The result means that Russell Martin's men will head to Wembley to face Leeds United, who beat Norwich City 4-0 at Elland Road last night. The Whites finished the season in third place with 90 points, while the Saints ended up one place behind them on 87 points.

That being said, Daniel Farke's men were beaten in both games between the two sides, losing 3-1 on the South Coast and 2-1 in Yorkshire.

Whoever wins in the capital on May 26th will join Leicester City and Ipswich in the Premier League, meaning that two of the three teams who were relegated from top flight last season will bounce back at the first time of asking. The Blues are the only exception.
