Former Leeds striker Noel Whelan was following the match, and he told BBC Radio Leeds at full time: "They looked awful today. Bar the first 15 minutes when there was some great football played, mainly by Saiz, they were second in the game to Sheffield Wednesday. Too many below-par performances out there today."

Wednesday are a strong side and are one of the contenders for a top-two finish in the Championship this season."

Losing to the Owls is not an embarrassment, but the Leeds team and the fans should be disappointed with the performance.
