Villa fans highlight key moment which could have won the game v Leeds
By Emma Sanders
Aston Villa fans on Twitter have highlighted a key moment which could have sealed the victory for their side during the 1-1 draw against Leeds – and they have reacted with frustration.
Jonathan Kodjia scored the equalising goal from a spot kick in the 86th minute of the clash at Villa Park but fans believe he should also have assisted an earlier goal.
The Villa striker had a perfect opportunity to set up Ross McCormack in the second half in a two-on-one situation with Robert Green but he chose to shoot and the Leeds keeper produced a fantastic save.
Fans have reacted in frustration and highlighted the moment as one that could have proven to be the turning point for Steve Bruce’s side.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

we have far too many greedy players who don't play with their head up, Ayew the same which has cost us goals and points

It is not the first time Villa fans have complained about their strikers not working together and Jordan Ayew has come under criticism this season for wasting a number of opportunities.
Kodjia remains one of the club’s best players and his goal against Leeds was his ninth Championship goal of the season in 23 appearances.
He is their main centre forward but he will be absent in January when it was confirmed this week he will join up with the Ivory Coast squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Villa currently sit in ninth place in the Championship table and are already preparing for their next clash against Cardiff on Monday evening.
In other Aston Villa news, this attacker will be available for the Cardiff clash.
