The 30-year-old striker joined Villa on loan from Bournemouth in the January transfer window, and he made a huge impact for Bruce’s side.
He has scored seven goals since joining Villa, and was brilliant against Boro as well. He came close to scoring for Villa in the second half, and overall put in a very good performance.
Boro nearly took the game to extra time after Stewart Downing’s 89th minute free-kick hit against the bar.
In the end it was Mile Jedinak’s header in the first leg that made the difference between the two sides over the two legs.
Villa fans took to Twitter to respond to his tweet and let him know that he was brilliant on the night.
Must of been tough today for you today Lewis, keep going and win this final 💜💙
