Reaction

FT: Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Leeds boss Garry Monk tells Sky Sports: "Their only way back into it was a mistake from ourselves.

"Even after they got the equaliser we wanted to go and win the game. I thought we were excellent."

On the up

FT: Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Leeds' draw moves them above Huddersfield into fourth in the table.

Villa go above Barnsley into ninth, for the time being at least.

'Leeds moving in the right direction'

Andy Townsend

Leeds started the game slow and were second best. Once they came through that period I liked the way they controlled the game and moved forward in the second half.

He (Garry Monk) made two or three changes to the team but it didn't disrupt the way they were playing. Had they gone 2-0 up Villa would have ended up with nothing.

Leeds are a giant of a club in this league and are moving in the right direction.

FULL-TIME

Rotherham 1-2 Burton

The Millers threw everything at the visitors in the closing stages - even keeper Lewis Price came up for a last-gasp corner - but it wasn't enough to break Burton's resistance.

Nigel Clough's side have their first away win of the season, while Rotherham are now in big, big trouble at the bottom.

Reaction

FT: Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Leeds goalscorer Pontus Jansson tells Sky Sports: "It is a good point for us.

"We're happy with our point, I'm happy with my goal and we keep going."

FT: Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Both sets of fans seem pretty happy; Villa are glad not to have lost, while Leeds fans are very pleased with their side's display away from home.

Rotherham 1-2 Burton

We have entered five minutes of stoppage time here.

The Millers are asking questions of the visitors, but they're being answered with relative ease.

This match has turned increasingly scrappy and desperate, which is certainly suiting Burton.

FULL-TIME

Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

The whistle goes and it will be one point each for Villa and Leeds after a frantic final 10 minutes.

Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Villa break quickly but Kalvin Phillips makes a vital touch to stop their attack on the edge of the area.

Is that the last key act?

CLOSE!

Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Pinball in the Villa area! Pontus Jansson is there again for Leeds but Villa have bodies back to get two crucial blocks in.

Four minutes have been added.

Then Jonathan Kodjia shoots wide after a swift Villa counter. This is end-to-end stuff!

GREAT SAVE!

Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Rudy Gestede and Jonathan Kodjia combine brilliantly for Villa but Robert Green comes out to save superbly with his chest from Kodjia. Top goalkeeping!

Down the other end, Leeds win a late corner...

'Good work from the officials'

Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Andy Townsend

Rudy Gestede was always getting there and Liam Cooper offers his arm up to do. It was a silly thing to do as there was no pace on the ball. Gestede had to work hard to get it on target/

It was good work from the officials in the end as the assistant referee had the confidence to keep waving his flag and ensure the penalty was given.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

What a chance! Straight down the other end, Hadi Sacko almost wins it for Leeds, but he clips the bar from inside the area!

He'd skipped past his man and was one-on-one.

It looks like Villa's Jordan Amavi got back to get a crucial foot in and deflect that onto the bar.

Rotherham 1-2 Burton

The Brewers are on the back foot, as you'd expect, but I wouldn't say they're hanging on.

Having said that, Rotherham have their best opportunity of the half as on-loan Chelsea forward Izzy Brown smashes an effort just wide from inside the area.

Seven minutes plus stoppage time stand in the way of a massive Burton triumph.

GOAL Aston Villa 1-1 Leeds

Jonathan Kodjia (pen)

Jonathan Kodjia is the calmest man in the midlands as he tucks the ball in, sending Robert Green the wrong way.

Relief erupts around Villa Park!

PENALTY (Villa)

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

It is given! Villa have a lifeline! Liam Cooper handled in the area. It is a clear penalty.

PENALTY APPEAL

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Villa want a penalty for handball... The referee is going to ask his assistant, because he isn't initially sure...

SUBSTITUTION (Leeds)

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

The visitors, who are edging closer and closer to a huge win, replace Liam Bridcutt with Ronaldo Vieira.

That's their final sub of the game - Stuart Dallas was also replaced by Pablo Hernandez shortly before the hour mark.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

One player who has been quietly impressive for Leeds tonight is Kalvin Phillips.

He's read the game well, making little interceptions here and there in the middle of the park, getting stuck in and keeping possession ticking over.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Villa win a corner but Robert Green punches the left-wing delivery away. Then the second-phase ball is blocked away for another corner.

This one is aimed for Nathan Baker, but Leeds head it away.

SUBSTITUTION (Villa)

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Leeds get in behind Villa's backline with a neat through ball to Hadi Sacko but Mark Bunn does well to rush out and get his body in front to smother Sacko's shot.

Moments later, Villa bring on winger Albert Adomah for Jordan Ayew

Rotherham 1-2 Burton

Who do you want the big chance to fall to, when you're chasing a precious leveller?

Probably not the defender with one career goal in 65 games.

The goal was gaping, but Darnell Fisher lacks a cool head as his volley flies wide - Rotherham have 17 minutes of normal time left.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Jordan Ayew has time to shoot outside the area but his half-volley bounces two yards wide of the far post.

That was a half-chance for Villa.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Leeds' Luke Ayling and Villa's Jordan Ayew collide as they go for a 50-50 in the air.

There is not loads in it, but Ayling looks in pain. Both players are OK to continue.

Rotherham 1-2 Burton

It was only a matter of time - the hosts are turning the screw.

First Jon McLaughlin holds Danny Ward's low effort on the turn, before Anthony Forde's shot goes high and wide after a slick move involving Izzy Brown and Darnell Fisher. 

Meanwhile, Peter Odemwingie is on for Rotherham with 67 minutes on the clock.

SUBSTITUTION (Leeds)

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Leeds bring on former West Brom and Birmingham City striker Chris Wood, in place of Kemar Roofe.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Leeds keeper Robert Green is there again - this time to turn away a fierce effort from a tight angle from Jonathan Kodjia.

I'm not sure it was going in, but it needed to be palmed away to safety and it was.

Home fans frustrated

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Andy Townsend

Ex-Aston Villa midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

I have been fortunate enough to play for Aston Villa when things are going well. When it isn't they are a tough crowd. They believe they are a big club and should be challenging for trophies. They do get frustrated quickly and you have to keep playing and believe in what you are doing.

Rotherham 1-2 Burton

Burton supporters will be pleased to hear this game has hit a bit of a lull as we pass the hour mark.

The Millers have had no openings since the break - alarming as they're meant to be chasing the game against their fellow strugglers.

Nigel Clough's side may fancy nicking a third - the hosts have conceded a league-high 52 goals this season.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Steve Bruce

Aston Villa are yet to lose at home this season and Steve Bruce's side won five in a row at Villa Park prior to this game.

If Leeds were to keep this up and win tonight, it would be one very big statement indeed.

Was the keeper unfortunate?

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Andy Townsend

Ex-Aston Villa on BBC Radio 5 live

I think Kemar Roofe was just in front of Mark Bunn for Jansson's goal and the ball pitched in front of him, but it is one you'd expect him to save.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

That Leeds goal has completely changed the atmosphere around Villa Park.

The visiting fans are having a great time - their side are third in the league table as things stand.

YELLOW CARD (Bridcutt)

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Liam Bridcutt goes into the referee's book for a deliberate foul on Villa's Leandro Bacuna to halt a quick Villa counter attack.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

They play it short but Hadi Sacko forces another corner... And this time, Villa clear the danger.

Rotherham 1-2 Burton

Nine minutes of the second half have passed, and Burton are enjoying arguably their best spell of the match.

Lloyd Dyer has had their best chance of the half, blazing over after being fed by Lucas Akins.

The Brewers may have lost four league games in a row, but the lost time they suffered five consecutive defeats was back in March 2012 - they're determined not to let it happen again.

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

And now Leeds win another right-wing corner... What a spell they're having!

HITS THE WOODWORK

Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Almost immediately, Pontus Jansson nearly has his second!

From another right-wing corner, the ball bounces loose to the Leeds man in the Villa area and he hits a sweet half-volley onto the top of the crossbar!

Leeds are rampant now...

GOAL Aston Villa 0-1 Leeds

Pontus Jansson

Against the run of play, Leeds lead! From a right-wing corner, Pontus Jansson loses his marker and gets up to send a powerful, downward header in to open the scoring.

There's some debate about whether it got another touch before crossing theline, but the defender will claim it.

The Leeds fans go wild.

Pontus Jansson

Aston Villa 0-0 Leeds

Robert Green does well for a third time in this game, punching the ball clear as Ross McCormack's cross was fizzed across his six-yard box towards the waiting Jonathan Kodjia.

'Villa, Villa, Villa' rings out around the ground.
