Match preview: Leeds v Owls

10 January 2020

Wednesday bounced back from three successive league defeats with an impressive FA Cup victory away at Brighton last weekend.

The Owls will be looking to take the positives from the 1-0 win at The Amex into another tough encounter at Elland Road.

It’s a big challenge on Saturday for Garry Monk’s men, who face a Leeds side top of the table and in strong form.

On home soil, the Whites have won seven, drawn four and lost just one game.

The two sides met back in October in front of the Sky Sports cameras and drew 0-0 in an entertaining clash at Hillsborough.

Team news

SWFC: Steven Fletcher has been ruled out for eight to 10 weeks after suffering a knee injury at Brighton last week.
