Aston Villa steward couldn't contain himself after Andre Green's 94th-minute equaliser in 3-3 draw

Aston Villa and Sheffield United put on an absolute classic on Friday night. 

The Blades squandered the chance to go top after Billy Sharp’s hat-trick saw them ease into a 3-0 lead. 

That meant there were large pockets of empty seats at Villa Park by the time Tyrone Mings and Tammy Abraham scored twice in four minutes to set up a nervy finish. 

With almost 94 minutes on the clock, United made a hash of clearing the ball and it came to John McGinn, who placed an inch-perfect cross onto the head of Andre Green for the equaliser. 

As journalist Richard Jolly pointed out, Villa have now scored an astonishing 24 goals in draws this season, including one 5-5 and two 3-3s. 

Whatever that says about their capabilities at the other end, it's made for some remarkable entertainment. 

As Green's header sailed into the top corner past Dean Henderson, the Holte End went into a frenzy.

In fact, fans on social media spotted that not only were the supporters going crazy, one of the stewards couldn't contain himself either. 

Seen in the orange jacket below, he spent a few moments going mad with Green before remembering that he was, in fact, a steward and was meant to be stopping the players from running into the crowd.

He suddenly tried to deal with Abraham before giving up and jumping up and down again. Take a look: 

Who can blame him - three goals down with just over eight minutes of normal time to play and rescuing a point? You can forgive him for enjoying the moment. 

The result doesn't really do much for Dean Smith's side, who could have done with three points to close the gap between themselves and the play-off places. 

Yet there are those priceless moments in football when the wider implications don't matter too much. 

Never leave early at Villa Park.
