Sheffield Wednesday stopper Keiren Westwood says 6-0 win v Leeds United is 'irrelevant'

The Irish keeper is not expecting a big win this afternoon.

Leeds United take on Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in an early afternoon kick-off in the Championship this morning, with the corresponding fixture from last season surely resonating.

Goals from Reda Johnson, Atde Nuhiu, Conor Wickham, Chris Maguire and two goals from Caolan Lavery, his first strikes for the club, did the business as Leeds suffered a horrible defeat against their Yorkshire foes.

Leeds fans still have nightmares about that game but Wednesday keeper Keiren Westwood is certain that no repeat is likely at today.

Westwood told the Yorkshire Evening Post:

“You can’t look at past games; everything is different now, new teams and squads – Leeds have a new team, too.

“This is a new game. Everyone spoke about the 6-0 game at the start of the season, when we drew 1-1.

“It’s irrelevant now, it’s been and gone.

“We just have to get a win (today) and go out on a high at Hillsborough.”

The goalkeeper arrived at the club for nothing in the summer, after being released by Sunderland at the end of his contract. The Irishman has gone on to be a massive hit at the club, as Wednesday have kept a whopping number of clean sheets this season.

Leeds United meanwhile are in a rut, losing their last five games and not winning since their 3-0 win against Fulham on the 18th March.

Both teams seasons are over in regards for playing for promotion of survival, but Yorkshire pride is on offer this afternoon. Leeds will want to avoid a repeat of last season.
