David Prutton predicts score of Leeds United clash v Sheffield Wednesday

Leeds United will travel to Hillsborough to face Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night (8 March). 

The Whites are heading into this match on the back of a 1-0 win against Stoke City. However, they were held to a 1-1 draw against Yorkshire rivals Hillsborough the last time when they played away from Elland Road.

Sheffield Wednesday remain 23rd in the league but they are one of the most in-form teams under Danny Rohl, having picked up four wins in a row. If they can keep this form until the rest of the season, the Owls should be able to save themselves from getting relegated.

David Prutton thinks Leeds should have enough on their tank to squeeze out a win, and has predicted a 2-1 win for them.

What Prutton said about Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds United

“It just shows how strange this league is that Sheffield Wednesday could win four from five and move from 23rd to… 23rd in the table. But the fact they are in contention to move out of the bottom three on Friday night, from where they came from, shows just what a job Danny Rohl has done,” said Prutton on Sky Sports.

“The problem is they’ve got Leeds United standing in their way at Hillsborough. They returned to winning ways against Stoke in midweek after being held by Huddersfield at the weekend. And should have enough to power past the Owls.”
