Match Previews

18s set for Yorkshire derby

5 December 2018

The Owls Under-18s face a tough trip to Leeds on Saturday morning.

Andy Holdsworth’s youngsters are flying in the U18 Professional Development League.

Following last weekend’s 3-1 victory over Hull at Middlewood Road, Wednesday maintained their place at the top of the division.

The Owls have collected an impressive 34 points from 15 games and have tasted defeat just once this campaign.

That defeat came on home soil at the hands of Yorkshire rivals Leeds back in October, whom they are set to go head to head with on Saturday morning at Thorp Arch.

The Whites are also in strong form and head into the derby with back to back wins over Burnley and Barnsley and are currently third in the table, six points behind Wednesday’s with a game in hand.

Holdsworth said: “It’s another big game for the lads, we have a big week coming up with the FA Youth Cup game next week but all our focus is on Saturday.

“It’s always a tough game against Leeds and as pointed out, they are the only side to beat us this season.

“We didn’t perform to our highest standards on that day so hopefully we’ll see a much better display on Saturday but the lads are looking forward to it.”

Match Reports

U18 report: Leeds 2-0 Owls

9 December 2018

The Owls Under-18s suffered a second defeat of the campaign at the hands of Leeds United on Saturday.

The Whites ran out 2-0 winners and remain the only side to take three points from Wednesday this season, completing the double at Thorp Arch.

Goals either side of the break from Charlie Cresswell and Niklas Haugland sealed victory for United.

The breakthrough came midway through the first half when Cresswell’s bullet header flew into the top corner via a ricochet off the post and a touch from the unfortunate Conor Grant.

Leeds’ second came on 63 minutes when Haugland’s deflected effort found the back of the net, with the ball taking a touch from Isaac Rice before nestling into the bottom corner.

The Owls were forced to play the final 15 minutes with ten men as Grant, who just moments earlier saw his free kick cannon back off the upright, picked up a minor injury, with all three substitutions already made.

And with that, there was little hope of a comeback for Wednesday who now turn their attention to the FA Youth Cup clash with Stoke at Hillsborough on Thursday (7.00pm)

The winners will face Everton at home in round four.

Owls: Render, Dawodu (Thompson 55), Ellery, Kenyon (Farmer 74), Reaney, Rice, Hagan, Waldock, Hammoud (O’Brien 46), Grant, Vasalo
