Leeds United returned to winning ways in the Championship on Saturday when they got the better of Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 away from home.

Not many would have expected Leeds to pick up all three points at Wednesday, but they did just that.

Chris Maguire put the Owls in the lead from the penalty spot in the 36th minute of the encounter, but Charlie Taylor restored parity for Leeds just three minutes before the hour mark.

Then in 72nd minute, Steve Morison fired in the winner for the West Yorkshire outfit after Wednesday keeper Keiren Westwood saved his initial shot.

The win means that Leeds are now 15th in the Championship table with 55 points from 45 matches, just four points and a place behind Wednesday.

Following the result, Leeds duo Liam Cooper and Charlie Taylor revelled in the result on Twitter.
