Match preview: Owls v Leeds

25 October 2019

It’s second v third at Hillsborough in the Championship on Saturday lunchtime.

The 12.30pm kick-off sees second-placed Leeds visit S6 as the Sky Sports cameras return for the Yorkshire derby.

The Whites have begun the campaign in strong fashion and are just two points off West Brom in top spot.

This weekend’s visitors have lost just three of their 13 games so far but two of those have come in their last five outings – and both away from home – losing 1-0 at Charlton and 2-1 at Millwall.

Wednesday are aiming to post their third successive home win after defeating Wigan and Stoke 1-0.
