MATCHDAY QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce*

โ€œI was delighted with the response in the second half in particular. I thought the two lads who came on gave us the spark - credit to them.

โ€There was more purpose and more intensity [in the second half] and we looked after the ball better. We had good opportunities in the first half without damaging or hurting them. All in all weโ€™ll take a point after a decent second half.โ€

*Sky Sports*
Friday, 1 December 2017

Henri Lansbury came off the bench to score his first goal in an Aston Villa shirt and earn a 1-1 draw against Leeds in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday night.

Steve Bruceโ€™s Villa came into the game off the back of a better run of form, but it was their opponents who took the lead inside 20 minutes when Pontus Jansson fought off Chris Samba to nod home Pablo Hernandezโ€™s corner (19).

The pendulum swung in the opposite direction after the break and though Villa put Leeds on the backfoot, it took them until the 71st minute to restore parity when Lansbury drove a low shot past Felix Wiedwald that crossed the line via the far post (71).

The draw lifts Thomas Christiansenโ€™s men to seventh, while Villa remain in fourth spot, just a point behind Sheffield United, who play on Saturday.

Leeds started the game with a high-intensity approach and though they edged the first 15 minutes or so, they had nothing to show for their well-worked build-up play despite Caleb Ekuban and Ergjan Alioksiโ€™s energetic displays.

Johnstone had lived a relatively charmed life for much of the gameโ€™s opening exchanges, but he could do nothing to keep out Janssonโ€™s header with 19 minutes on the clock.

Reportedly carrying a groin injury, Samba was made to look inexperienced when his opposite number Jansson managed to divert Hernandezโ€™s corner home despite being hauled to the deck by the veteran Congolese defender.

They do say football is a game of two halves, though and that certainly proved to be the case at Elland Road; Villa found themselves comfortably in possession as the second half began, with Leeds unable to penetrate their backline.

And their improved showing was rewarded when substitute Lansbury drove home his first Villa goal with less than 20 minutes remaining.

Neil Taylorโ€™s foray forward was curtailed by a nasty looking 50/50 with Jansson, but the ball found its way to the feet of fellow substitute Jack Grealish, who left the ball for Lansbury to hit a low shot off the far post and over the line.

The final stages were played at a rapid pace as Samu Saiz and Keinan Davis both looked to force a late winner for their respective sides, but deep into an extended spell of stoppage time Peter Bankes blew his whistle to bring the game to a close.
