Jimmy Shan explains why West Brom can pull off comeback


West Brom caretaker boss Jimmy Shan will draw on Champions League inspiration to get the Baggies to Wembley.


Albion trail 2-1 after imploding late on in the second half of Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship semi-final first leg at Aston Villa.


The hosts scored twice in 202 seconds through Conor Hourihane and Tammy Abraham’s penalty to cancel out Dwight Gayle’s opener.


They host their local rivals at The Hawthorns on Tuesday also without suspended 24-goal striker Gayle after his late red card at Villa Park.


But, after Liverpool and Tottenham’s improbable Champions League semi-final comebacks against Barcelona and Ajax last week, Shan knows the Baggies can recover.


Villa won a club record 10 straight games in their final 12 outings to leap into the play-offs.
