Leeds United in yellow: Memorable photos as David O'Leary's Whites sink Aston Villa

Leeds United are approaching their latest battle against Aston Villa - two decades on from when the two sides locked horns at the turn of the Millennium in the Premier League.

Back in 2002, David O'Leary's Whites were gunning for another Champions League place whilst Graham Taylor's Villa side were on their way to another top-half finish.

The two sides battled it out in the penultimate month of the season at Villa Park and a moment of magic from United's Australian ace striker Mark Viduka proved the difference as part of a 1-0 victory.

Leeds were in their extremely popular yellow 'Strongbow' away kit although the victory was not enough to savour a repeat taste of Champions League football as part of a fifth-placed finish.

Here, via Getty Images and Varleys, we dig out 12 memorable photos of the April 2002 victory at Villa Park.
