Before the game, we labelled this game as the most important game of the season, and the defining moment of the season. For me as a fan, this is the turning point – we are finally starting to believe, this is happening.
A world class performance from Clarke opened the scoring, to skip past El Mohamady and slot it into the bottom right with a real touch of finesse, which was the beginning of the end for Villa.
Leeds United had a slow start conceding 2 in the first 20 minutes, making the game seem more and more like a repeat of West Brom, however the fighting spirit shown from the lads was nothing less than sensational.
The high press and intensity from Leeds made it almost impossible for Villa to contain such an in form Leeds squad, and the 94th minute winner almost seemed destined to happen.
Alioski ran his heart out all game and played with the most passion I have seen all season, he may have been subject to criticism on many occasions this season however credit must be given where it’s due, his heart was in the game today.
The last 10 minutes had everyone’s heart in their mouth’s, with Leeds pushing further and further forward following a sensational equaliser from Pontus Jansson, just less than a minute after chasing a pitch invader off the pitch.
Over 41,000 fans witnessed what is in our opinion, the Championship game of the season, and a defining moment for Leeds United’s season. As Leeds march on to the top of the league over the Christmas period.
