Leeds United made the trip to Hillsborough earlier today for the Yorkshire Derby clash against fellow high flying Sheffield Wednesday.
Both sides would’ve seen themselves replace Championship table toppers West Bromwich Albion with a victory and all three points, but in woeful weather conditions, ultimately that played its own part in subduing the tie and limiting any real chances on target.
Each side had one solid chance to take the lead, but they were both wasted and the game fizzled out in a scoreless draw.
Not ideal from Leeds’ point of view as we were looking for two wins in three victories, but with our recent form, it is at least three games unbeaten again and although on loan Arsenal starlet Eddie Nketiah did replace Patrick Bamford at the half time break, the fact he had a far more lively second half is only going to keep that particular debate running.
Speaking to the BBC following the full time whistle, manager Marcelo Bielsa said of the performance.
“In the first half we played better and although we controlled the match, they had the chances. In the second half, the match changed. Sometimes they commanded, imposing their style on us at certain moments, sometimes we did. It was the kind of match you can win or lose.”
