Aston Villa beat Leeds United 1-0 to continue their push for promotion whilst Leeds have now won just twice in their last 19 games.

The home side dominated all areas of the game but they had only a solitary Lewis Grabban goal to show for their domination, especially in the first half.

Villa had 17 shots on goal but they had only five on target. Leeds could muster just two shots on target from nine attempts.

Steve Bruce’s side edged the corner count five to four whilst they enjoy 53% of the possession to Leeds 47%

Referee Tony Harrington had a quiet evening, not showing one card over the 90 minutes.

The win for Villa ensures they will earn at least a play-off place this season whilst the defeat for Leeds sees them remain in 14th place in the Championship.
