Leeds drew yet again today as their match with Sheffield Wednesday finished level.

Leeds United continued their remarkable run of draws as they played out a 1-1 draw against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road this afternoon.

After 1-1, 0-0 and 2-2 draws with Burnley, Reading and Bristol City respectively, manager Uwe Rosler was desperate to pick up his first win of the season - but it was a familiar story and ending for Whites fans.

Wednesday took the lead in the first half, as Portuguese forward Marco Matias demonstrated just why Wednesday were so desperate to sign him from Nacional this summer.

Matias flicked the ball over Liam Cooper's head before angling a superb volley in off the woodwork to leave Whites goalkeeper Marco Silvestri helpless.

Leeds kept knocking on the door and finally they got their equaliser on the hour mark, as outstanding wing play from Stuart Dallas gave Chris Wood the chance to score from close range, and he didn't disappoint as he slid the ball into the goal.

The most concerning part for Leeds is that they hit 20 shots on the Sheffield Wednesday goal, but only three of those were on target.

It's a familiar feeling for Rosler, but Leeds must also take the positives - they remain unbeaten in the Championship this season, giving them a strong platform to build upon.
