The big game in the Championship on Saturday’s see two former Premier League sides, and Yorkshire rivals go head to head as Leeds makes the 36 mile trek down to Sheffield to take on Sheffield Wednesday.
Sheffield Wednesday are riding high this season and have definite ambitions of reaching the playoffs and an automatic promotion place is certainly not out of the equation.
The Owls are currently 7th in the table, just two points outside the play-off places. The club has won four of their last five games including a 3-2 success over Bolton midweek.
Two goals from Gary Hooper secured the three points with the former Celtic and Norwich striker back in form after a barren few seasons.
The 27 year old has scored four goals in his last five games for the Owls having joined the club on loan in October.
Hooper has formed a good understanding with 11 goal top scorer Fernando Forestieri and the club are believed to be looking to make the move permanent.
A win for the Owls would see them climb into the top 6, albeit only for a few hours until Ipswich play although it would put the pressure on the Tractor Boys.
Hillsborough is becoming something of a fortress for Wednesday, with the side now ten games unbeaten on their home patch.
Leeds meanwhile are 15th in the table, 12 points outside the play-off places and on a run of three draws and a defeat in their last five games.
The club will have to pick themselves up from their midweek disappoint with their 2-1 defeat to Ipswich only confirmed in the 90th minute. The setback was their first defeat in 8 games.
Steve Evans’ side have drawn a joint league high 11 games this season and their failure to turn one point into three has cost them, but they have improved considerably since the arrival of the fiery Scot.
Wednesday have not beaten Leeds since they hammered their rivals 6-0 in January 2014, losing one and drawing two of the subsequent three meetings.
Overall that success is their only win in this fixture since 2007 with Leeds winning two and the two sides drawing five times.
Each of those shared spoils has finished 1-1 while surprisingly given the local rivalry there has been just one red card in the last seven meetings.
Predictably, Sheffield Wednesday are the favourite to win the match at odds against, with Leeds available to back at 10/3.
Considering the recent record the Owls at home, the Sheffield Wednesday home win offers considerable appeal.
