Leeds United fans want Andy Lonergan in the first XI on the Sunday.

If there's one Leeds United man who has it all to prove, it's Felix Wiedwald.

The German goalkeeper hasn't been outstanding since his £500,000 switch from Werder Bremen in the summer and has already given head coach Thomas Christiansen something of a dilemma.

Wiedwald didn't cover himself in glory in the 3-2 win over Ipswich Town last weekend and Andy Lonergan is knocking on the door for a second Championship debut with the Whites - he spent the 2011-12 season at Elland Road.

The Whites, who lost 3 -1 at Cardiff City in midweek, travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday hoping for a response, and some fans of the West Yorkshire club want to see Christiansen use the 33-year-old stopper.

You can't blame fans for wanting to see Wiedwald dropped. In short, he inspires very little confidence at the moment and Lonergan simply has the experience and the know-how to do a decent job at Hillsborough.

This is a crucial time for Leeds, who have now lost two of their last three Championship games and the gloss seems to be slowly but surely coming off their early-season form.
