Hillsborough is the setting for today’s Championship clash between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United.

The two sides are currently separated by seven points and four places in the table and Leeds boss Neil Redfearn will be hoping to cut the gap to just a single point if possible.

That said, Wednesday will have ambitions to finish in the top 10 and they will still remember the last time these two sides clashed at this ground, with the Owls running out 6-0 winners.

Leeds are without a win in six matches and things have taken a very real turn for the worse in recent times.

As for Wednesday, they will take confidence from their recent 2-2 draw with high-flying Bournemouth but with only one win in their last five matches they are not exactly setting the world alight with their form right now.

The last time these two sides met it finished 1-1 but it could go either way this afternoon.
