PONTUS Jansson felt Leeds deserved more than a point after Thursday's draw at Aston Villa and insists they will be doing everything possible to get back to winning ways at home to Rotherham today.

The Whites extended their unbeaten Sky Bet Championship run to four matches with the 1-1 stalemate at Villa Park.

Jansson scored and hit the crossbar, while Hadi Sacko also struck the woodwork late on as United saw Jonathan Kodjia convert a penalty equaliser five minutes from time.

"We played really good football in the second half and created a lot of chances against a strong Aston Villa team," said Jansson.

"If you had asked me before the game, I would have taken 1-1, but because we played so well in the second half, we feel like we have lost two points.

"It is always disappointing when you let a goal in at the end of the game when you have played good football.

"We had a really good chance after with Hadi but unfortunately it hit the crossbar, which is football. Sometimes they go in and sometimes they don't.

"But we are happy we are in a good position in the table (fifth). We want to go to the Premier League and currently we are in the play-offs.

"We have Rotherham in the next game and we have to keep going and put all of our focus into that game.

"If we can get the three points against Rotherham, then a point at Aston Villa isn't too bad.

"We are strong at Elland Road. Hopefully it will be a good game and hopefully the stadium will be full. We are strong with the fans and we really need them."

Leeds boss Garry Monk could not hide his frustration after his side were denied victory at Villa.

United had been on course for a ninth victory in 11 games after Jansson's headed opener in the early stages of the second half but Kodjia's penalty, after Liam Cooper handled in the area, burst the bubble.

Monk said: "We got the goal and had two or three really good chances that you have to take. Had we taken one of them, I think we would have won the game quite comfortably.

"But a good team like Aston Villa, who are very experienced, always stuck in there and had their chances as the game went to and fro towards the end.

"So both teams were creating but we really should have put the game to bed, especially in the first 30 minutes of the second half when we were fantastic.

"Credit to my players. Their attitude and sheer will to try win was clear. The way they are going about their work right now is pleasing. They're growing all the time and that's something to take from this game.

"But it shows how far we've come that we're disappointed not to win against a team that have a fantastic record at home.

"We feel they should have had their first defeat but it wasn't to be. We take a point and a lot of confidence and positives."
