Noel Whelan has given his take on Leeds United’s performance against Sheffield Wednesday on BBC Radio Leeds (2:23pm, October 26, 2019).

Leeds played out a goalless draw with Wednesday away from home at the Hillsborough Stadium in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Both the Yorkshire clubs are aiming for promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season, and they cancelled out each other.

 

Former Leeds striker Whelan was following the match, and he has given his take on the final result.

Whelan said on BBC Radio Leeds at full time (2:23pm, October 26, 2019): “Well, it wasn’t a great spectacle from both sides, bits of quality in both halves, where keepers have made great saves, have got to give credit to the two keepers for making brilliant saves, but typical kind of Yorkshire derby there, scrappy, not much flow to the game.”

Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Hillsborough Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hosts Wednesday had 43% of the possession, took 11 shots of which four were on target, and earned five corners, according to BBC Sport.

Visitors Leeds had 57% of the possession, took nine shots of which three were on target, and earned four corners, according to BBC Sport.
