Manager turned pundit Ian Holloway has predicted a draw in the Yorkshire derby between Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday.

Ian Holloway has told SkySports he predicts Leeds United will record their fourth successive draw this weekend.

The Whites host Sheffield Wednesday for a Yorkshire Derby, hoping to leapfrog their rivals in the table.

The Owls have four points from their opening three games, while Leeds have three, yet to win but also remaining unbeaten.

Holloway tipped a 1-1 draw, and said: "I can only see a draw as Wednesday are the draw specialists from last season.

"Leeds let in two goals in the last few minutes against Bristol City and that's bound to knock them a little bit – but that's the Championship. It's a high quality division.

"However, I do like the balance in the Leeds side, they're still learning as a group."

Leeds drew their opener against Burnley before sharing the spoils with Reading and Bristol City.

Wednesday beat the Robins before losing to table-toppers Ipswich, and coming from behind to salvage a late equaliser against the Royals in midweek.

Neither side can afford a defeat four games in, with both harbouring dreams of promotion, Leeds are already six points behind Ipswich and Wednesday five points.

The gap could grow for one of them, and perspective change for the victor, while a draw will be a result which keeps each side ticking over without satisfying either set of supporters.
