Match preview: Leeds v Owls

12 April 2019

Sheffield Wednesday head to Yorkshire rivals Leeds for the televised derby on Saturday evening (5.30pm).

The hosts will be looking to maintain their place in the automatic promotion positions.

Wednesday, meanwhile, head to West Yorkshire in good form having suffered just one defeat in 13 under manager Steve Bruce.

The Owls bounced back from that solitary defeat against Aston Villa last weekend with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough on Tuesday.

Leeds returned to winning ways in midweek by defeating Preston 2-0 after slipping to a 1-0 loss away at Birmingham at the weekend.

Here is swfc.co.uk’s match preview:

Team news

Owls: Sheffield Wednesday will run the rule over Dominic Iorfa and Barry Bannan ahead of the trip to Leeds.

Iorfa (thigh) and Bannan (hamstring) both pulled up with injury during the clash with Aston Villa last weekend and missed out in midweek against Forest.

Sam Hutchinson is available for selection after sickness in midweek ruled out the midfielder.

The game will likely come too soon for Rolando Aarons (ankle), who returned to training on Friday.

Leeds: The Whites have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Yorkshire derby.

Pablo Hernandez (ankle) passed a late fitness test to feature against Preston in midweek and will be available on Saturday after coming through the full 90 minutes.

Left back Barry Douglas (knee ligament) has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Match Reports

Report: Leeds 1-0 Owls

13 April 2019

The Owls kept promotion hopefuls and Yorkshire rivals Leeds at bay for much of this White Rose derby but lost out to a solitary Jack Harrison goal midway through the second half.

Keiren Westwood was the chief source of the hosts’ frustrations but the Wednesday keeper was finally beaten and his side now face a mountainous task to gatecrash the top six.

Westwood was in fine form at Elland Road but the Whites ultimately found a way through to seal three vital points.

A tense opening saw little creation at either end of the field and it was around the 15-minute mark when that cycle was broken.

Ezgjan Alioski swung a teasing corner to the back stick where Tyler Roberts aimed a powerful header on target but Westwood diverted athletically over the crossbar.

Wednesday responded in an instant and Gary Hooper rounded keeper Kiko Casilla but could only find the side-netting from a tight angle.

Back came the hosts and the impressive Roberts beat Westwood from range with a clever curler but also the far post.

Barry Bannan forced a fine save from Casilla with a similar effort as the derby tussle really opened up.

Leeds had the next chance on the half-hour when Harrison executed a textbook downward header only to see Westwood come to the Owls’ rescue once more.

The Whites went closer still from their next attack, this time Hooper hooked a Luke Ayling shot off the line before Westwood again thwarted Roberts five minutes before the break.

Leeds started the second half with similar intent and Pontus Jansson might have done better with a free header from Pablo Hernandez’ corner.

Hernandez then fired over from distance and likewise Alioski although the latter’s effort was far closer.

Patrick Bamford couldn’t quite get the ball out of his feet and a wonderful chance went begging but a minute later on 65 Leeds hit the front.

Hernandez crossed low from the right and Harrison applied the merest of touches to guide into the bottom corner past Westwood.

Wednesday were on the back foot and substitute Kemar Roofe had the ball in the net in the closing stages only for a linesman’s flag to cut short the celebrations.

But it mattered not in the final analysis as Leeds hung on for victory while the Owls head into an Easter double header against Norwich and Bristol City knowing only two wins will suffice.

Wednesday: Westwood, Palmer, Lees, Hector, Fox, Boyd, Hutchinson, Bannan, Reach (Matias 41), Fletcher (Nuhiu 76), Hooper (Forestieri 66)
