Trouble flares as Saiz fires Leeds to victory Terry’s debut goal sparks Villa surge
TWO first-half goals from Samuel Saiz set Leeds on course for a 3-0 Championship win at Bristol City.
Pierre-Michel Lasogga completed a convincing and overdue victory with a second-half header before both sides were reduced to 10 men as Leeds full-back Gaetano Berardi and City substitute Matt Taylor were shown red cards for a 79th-minute confrontation.
Taylor went down clutching his face, but was judged equally guilty and the incident sparked trouble between the two benches, with stewards getting involved. JOHN TERRY spearheaded Aston Villa’s 2-1 Sky Bet Championship home win over Fulham with his first goal for the midlands club since his move from Chelsea.
Terry’s opener laid the foundation for Villa moving into the top six for the first time this season as they extended their unbeaten home run in the league to nine games.
Fulham, unbeaten in their previous four matches including away triumphs at Nottingham Forest and QPR, equalised on the stroke of half-time through their leading scorer, Stefan Johansen, but Albert Adomah settled matters in the hosts’ favour four minutes into the second half.
