Aston Villa locked horns with Leeds United at Elland Road earlier today as they looked to earn a good result on the road. The Villans were solid in the first half and managed to get to the half-time break with a 0-0 scoreline.
Luis Sinisterra was sent off by the referee in the 48th minute which put Aston Villa at a numerical advantage. The West Midlands club failed to be clinical in the final third and were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw away from home.
