Five Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds games to remember, from Frank Worthington to Caolan Lavery

It's another Yorkshire Derby at Hillsborough this weekend and fans of both clubs have some mixed memories of this traditionally feisty encounter.

Both Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United have endured a mixed campaign in the Sky Bet Championship, with Wednesday having a steady but unspectacular season and Leeds having a rollercoaster of off-field issues which have affected performances on it.

Now the curtain comes down on a season which sees both teams securing their Championship status for next term, and about to lock horns again in an end-of-season encounter which is sure to provide some talking points.

The first league game between the two clubs in nearly 13 years saw Wednesday resurgent under ex-Leeds legend Jack Charlton and Leeds coming to terms with relegation from the old Division One. But on a sunny day in Hillsborough in front of a 29,000 crowd it was Leeds who raced into a 3-0 lead through goals from a Frank Worthington brace and Aidan Butterworth. Wednesday replied with late strikes from Gary Bannister and Gary Megson but couldn't force the win.

Wednesday were enjoying a fine season under manager Trevor Francis and would eventually finish in third place but it was Leeds that put in a landmark performance in a campaign that eventually saw them lift the league title. A hat-trick from former Owl Lee Chapman was added to by a Tony Dorigo free-kick and second half strikes from Mike Whitlow and Rod Wallace. In between, Wednesday made a game of it when John Sheridan converted a penalty which striker Gordon Watson won with one of the most famous dives in recent history.

It was Wednesday's turn to hit Leeds for six as a rampant home performance embarrassed Howard Wilkinson's faltering Leeds team. Goals from Marc Degryse (2), Guy Whittingham, Mark Bright and a late David Hirst brace always had Leeds at arm's length. It was 3-0 before Swedish international Tomas Brolin replied with a comical goal for Leeds as a Wednesday clearance rebounded off his prone body and into the net. Leeds' late consolation came from Rod Wallace.

As has often been the case, the two teams met when the clubs were heading in different directions. This time Wednesday were heading towards relegation from the Premier League while Leeds were weeks away from securing Champions League qualification. The gulf showed as Leeds cantered to a 3-0 victory notable for exquisite strikes from Michael Bridges and curling effort from Harry Kewell, with David Hopkin opening the scoring for the visitors.

The last Hillsborough fixture between the two clubs saw Wednesday rip a dishevelled Leeds to shreds in the nadir of Brian McDermott's tenure as Leeds manager. Two loan signings - Jimmy Kebe and Cameron Stewart - prompted a formation shuffle for Leeds but backroom issues were evident as a rampant Wednesday exploited weaknesses in every department for Leeds. The Owls were 2-0 up through Reda Johnson and Atdhe Nuhiu at the half-time break, shortly after which substitute Matt Smith was sent off for an elbow within seconds of entering the pitch. From there it was one-way traffic as Connor Wickham, Chris Maguire and a Caolan Lavery brace piled on the misery.
