Leeds United have not won any of their first three Championship games.

Liam Cooper has claimed via The Yorkshire Post that Leeds will give Sheffield Wednesday a "right good game" when the Whites visit Hillsborough on Saturday.

Leeds gear up for what could be Garry Monk's toughest game as United boss as the 38-year-old manager chases a first Championship win since replacing Steve Evans.

The Owls were beaten finalists in last season's playoff but Carlos Carvalhal's side have endured an indifferent start to the new season, winning one of their three games so far - and losing 3-1 to Championship new boys Burton Albion on Tuesday.

Monk's men avoided a third successive league defeat on Tuesday when Chris Wood netted a last-minute equaliser to hold Fulham to a 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

The centre-back anticipates a "great game" with Leeds' Yorkshire rivals and claims that he and his team-mates will offer an up-and-at-them approach this weekend.

“Sheffield Wednesday are a very good team and it will be a great game,” Cooper is quoted as saying by The Yorkshire Post.

“We just go there and play our game, try and imposes ourselves on them and play at a high tempo. “We will give them a right good game.

"Against Fulham, I felt they had a couple of chances in the first half but I thought we got to grips with it after that."

Victory at a difficult ground like Hillsborough could be just what Leeds need to kick-start their season. They have scored two and conceded six in three games and a big turnaround is needed.

United need a morale boost and beating Carvalhal and co might be the watershed moment which the team seems to need.
