Giuseppe Bellusci scored the equaliser for Leeds United against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday.

Leeds United failed to win yet again on Saturday, but for the first time in three matches they scored.

The Whites went into the Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road without a win in two Championship games.

Darko Milanic had started his reign as the Leeds manager with a 2-0 away defeat to Brentford last month, and on Wednesday they were held to a goalless draw by Reading at home.

A defeat appeared to be on the cards for Leeds in the Championship on Saturday when Wednesday took the lead through Chris Maguire in the 52nd minute.

However, Giuseppe Bellusci had other ideas as he scored from close range in the 79th minute to make it 1-1. Leeds increased the pressure in the final 10 minutes of the encounter, but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

The Whites are currently 14th in the Championship table with 15 points from 11 matches, six points behind leaders Norwich City.
