Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday will contest in a Yorkshire derby when the pair face off at Elland Road tomorrow.

Leeds are sat in 13th place in the Sky Bet Championship, 11 points behind Middlesbrough who are currently occupying the final play-off position.

Wednesday on the other hand, are sat in 18th position. Having just won 38 points so far this season, the Owls have had a season to forget.

Paul Heckingbottom will be looking for a response from his players, Leeds having not won in their last three games. Back-to-back 3-0 defeats at the hands of Middlesbrough and Wolves have seen them drift away from the play-off places.

There were signs of improvement when they made the visit to Reading and recorded a 2-2 draw. Despite going 1-0 down to an early Jon Dadi Bodvarsson strike, Leeds rUnited allied together and went in front with goals from Pontus Jansson and Pablo Hernandez.

Reading would strike back shortly after Leeds had gone in front. Eunan O’Kane put through his own net to level the scores, with the match ending with a deserved point for both sides.

Sheffield Wednesday have gone winless in the last month as it appears that Jos Luhukay is finding it difficult in his first season in England.

A draw in their last fixture at home to newly promoted side Bolton Wanderers showed that this is a season to forget for Wednesday fans.

George Boyd had put the Owls a goal up with just 12 minutes left on the clock, however it would be Bolton that would have the last laugh. Aaron Wilbraham’s 93rd minute leveler saw the three points just turn into one.

However, the Owls will be looking to complete the double over their rivals as Wednesday ran out comfortable winners at Hillsborough. A first half brace from Gary Hooper as well as a Kieran Lee strike late on secured the points for Carlos Carvahal’s men.
