Leeds United played out a 0-0 draw at Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon.

As the scoreline suggests, not a lot happened at Hillsborough, but that was largely down to both goalkeepers.

Leeds' Kiko Casilla and the Owls' Keiren Westwood both pulled off some fantastic saves, but that is particularly true of the latter.

Marcelo Bielsa's side looked certain to open the scoring on the stroke of half time when Patrick Bamford's guided header seemed to be heading for the net.

 

But Westwood pulled off a magnificent finger-tip save to deny the Leeds hitman, who is now nine Championship games without a goal.

Westwood impressing against United in a Yorkshire derby is nothing new, and here's how fans of the Elland Road club reacted to his display:

Given Wednesday's form, this wasn't a dreadful result for Leeds.

Yes, they'd have preferred a win and that goes without saying, but come May this might be seen as a good point for Bielsa's side.

They have dropped some terrible ones in recent weeks, games that they could and should have won, but this wasn't quite as dominant and the Argentine boss may be satisfied.
