AAPostLeedsGoal2Story in brief

Goals from Mateusz Klich and Albert Adomah ensured a 1-1 draw between Leeds United and Aston Villa – but both goals were out-of-the-ordinary efforts.

Klitch fired home in controversial circumstances on 72 minutes as Tyler Roberts failed to kick the ball out of play with Jonathan Kodjia down injured, something the visitors had done earlier in the half.

In the resulting melee, Anwar El Ghazi was dismissed and Conor Hourihane booked as the claret and blues contested the opener.

From the resulting kick-off, the hosts allowed their opponents to march up field to bag the leveller through Albert Adomah, although Pontus Jansson looked like he may not have received the memo from Head Coach Marcelo Bielsa.

MingsPostLeedsIt was an act of sportsmanship that was applauded by opposite number, Dean Smith, in his post-game interview.

Leeds had the better chances to win it at the death, with the visitors defending heroically with 10 men.

Tyrone Mings cleared off the line while Jed Steer, struggling through injury but continuing, saved superbly from playmaker Pablo Hernandez in seven minutes of stoppage time.

Overall, despite the bizarre five minute spell, it was an even and exciting contest, with our best opportunities coming from Andre Green in the first half with a glancing header and Neil Taylor with a shot blocked when well placed in the second half. 

McGinnPostLeedsAwayNo bore draw

With both teams already realistically looking like Play-Off contestants, you'd have been forgiven for thinking this could have turned into a damp squib.

However, it was anything but, with blood and thunder in the 90 minutes.

The team sheets showed the commitment of both bosses to three points, with strong sides fielded by the hosts and visitors.

On the pitch, it was high intensity throughout, with ebb and flow for the teams under the watchful eye of Dean Smith and Marcelo Bielsa. 

It finished 1-1 – but that only told part of the story!

SmithLeedsReactionNext up

It’s the final game of the regular season next weekend as we face league leaders, Norwich City.

The Canaries have been promoted after an impressive campaign – and need a draw against us to be crowned champions.

Dean Smith will have other ideas as he looks to finish the term – ahead of our participation in the Play-Offs – on a positive note.

The final day game takes place on Sunday 5th May, with a 12.30pm start.
