THE MATCH

The Owls make the short visit to Elland Road seeking a maiden point of the new Championship season.

Leeds lie in wait, with the Whites having posted a mixed bag of results so far.

The opening day saw a fine comeback against Cardiff when the hosts levelled a 2-0 deficit, before defeat at Birmingham next time out.

A 1-1 draw followed at home to West Brom but last week Leeds inflicted a rare defeat on Ipswich, emerging 4-3 winners at Portman Road.

In the Carabao Cup, though, our Yorkshire rivals lost on penalties to Salford in midweek, suffering the same fate as Wednesday as we lost a shootout to Mansfield.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: Xisco has no fresh injury concerns but the Owls boss confirmed that new recruit Momo Diaby will not feature before the first international break.

Leeds: The Whites could hand debuts to new signings Djed Spence, Glen Kamara and Ilea Gruev, all of whom joined Leeds in the last week of the transfer window.

LOVE FOOTBALL, PROTECT THE GAME

The EFL, Premier League, FA, FSA, PGMOL, LMA and PFA have come together this season to implement a series of measures to address behaviour across the game.

This includes new policies, procedures, and regulations to eradicate unacceptable conduct on the pitch, on the sidelines and in the stands.

The new measures build on the work launched last season to combat dangerous and illegal fan behaviour, supported by the ‘Love Football. Protect the Game’ football-wide campaign.
