Aston Villa U21 1-2 Leeds United U21 highlights: Perkins double cancels out penalty miss

FT: Villa 1-2 Leeds

A second away win on the spin, thanks to Sonny Perkins' brace. Mateo Joseph missed a first half penalty, earned by Darko Gyabi - both players impressed in their respective roles. All three signed in 2022. Seven points from nine.

90+10’ Wright played through and collides with Leeds goalkeeper Christy. Ball trickles into the net but Wright has been flagged offside.

ON: Miller

OFF: Allen

We’re going into triple digits

12 minutes added on at the end of the second half

88' Revan goes so close for Villa. Cuts in from right-back onto his left foot and it's inches the wrong side of the far post.

85' #LUFC showing great energy. Villa can't keep up with their moves front to back, fitness levels really beginning to tell in the closing stages. There'll be near enough ten minutes of stoppage time as well.

83’ Mateo Joseph over the crossbar. Carole slides in bravely to win possession, McGurk picks up the loose ball and plays it infield. Joseph receives on the left-hand side of the box but leans back a little too much.

81' So close to a hat-trick. Perkins lashes a low one towards goal and it skims past the post. Right foot that time. Keeper beaten if it was on target.

79’ Mateo Joseph one-on-one with the Villa ‘keeper after weaving the right way to fool his marker. Good stop.
