It’s a Yorkshire derby in this Championship clash as promotion hopefuls Leeds United host potential relegation candidates Sheffield Wednesday.
Leeds are hoping to welcome back forward El-Hadji Diouf from injury for the African’s first match of the season and will be favourites for the win.
Under Brian McDermott the Whites look strong and have a new self belief that hasn’t been seen at Elland Road for some time.
Leeds have won one and drawn one in the league whilst Wednesday have struggled so far and lost both of their games.
A defeat to lowly Rotherham United in the League Cup has done little for the Owls’ confidence and it could be a long, tough slog of a season for Dave Jones’ men.
For the hosts however they face the prospect of winning back-to-back Championship matches at home for the first time in eight years and looking at the stats for the pair, Wednesday will struggle to stop this happening.
