Some Sheffield Wednesday fans have a strong message for Steve Bruce ahead of Leeds United trip

Fans of Sheffield Wednesday look on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke City at Hillsborough Stadium on September 15, 2018 in Sheffield, England.

Sheffield Wednesday's result at Leeds United could affect their bitterest rivals, Sheffield United.

Some Sheffield Wednesday fans are split over how their side should approach Saturday's trip to Leeds United. Winning would keep alive Wednesday's slim hopes of a play-off finish, whilst simultaneously aiding Sheffield United's quest for automatic promotion.


And while many of a Sheffield Wednesday persuasion are urging Steve Bruce's team to go for victory, others are more than happy to roll over and take a beating.

This is what they're saying ahead of the Owls' trip to Leeds...

Leeds returned to second in the Championship after winning at Preston on Tuesday, with Sheffield United only able to draw at Birmingham.

But the Blades can crank the pressure back up on their Yorkshire rivals with their game at home to Millwall kicking off two-and-a-half hours before the game at Elland Road.
