Lucas Digne emerged from the bench to secure a late victory for Aston Villa in a thrilling 3-2 win over Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

Aston Villa initially appeared to be in control as Ollie Watkins broke the deadlock on 24 minutes, heading home from a corner. 

Watkins extended the lead seven minutes before half-time, cleverly slotting Douglas Luiz's quick free kick into the net for his 16th league goal of the season.

However, Luton fought back in the second half, with Tahith Chong scoring from close range on 66 minutes to narrow the deficit. 

Skipper Carlton Morris then equalised with a stunning volley into the far corner six minutes later, pulling Rob Edwards' side level.

In the dying minutes of the game, the visitors found a breakthrough as Lucas Digne headed home to snatch the win.

With this victory, Aston Villa solidifies their position in fourth place, holding a five-point lead over fifth-placed Tottenham, although they have played one more game. 

Meanwhile, Luton missed an opportunity to capitalise on defeats for Everton and Nottingham Forest, remaining four points adrift of safety in 18th place.
