THE MATCH

The stakes are high at Hillsborough as Leeds visit S6 tonight.

Both teams are in outstanding form as they battle at either end of the Championship.

The Owls have won five of our last six league games, while the Whites have triumphed in 10 of their last 11 outings.

Victory for Wednesday would see a huge leap of seven places in the table and Leeds would close the gap on leaders Leicester to just two points with a win tonight.

Everything to play for in front of the live Sky TV cameras!
