Leeds - Sheffield
Leeds United fans are hoping that this is the year they finally return to the Premier League. The league leaders host Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday who are eighth and two points behind the final promotion play-off place. United had a dodgy period over Christmas but have recovered well in their last two league games. They won a crazy match at Birmingham City 5-4 and then returned to that city to draw 1-1 at second placed West Bromwich Albion. United have only lost one of their last 15 league games, an away defeat at Fulham. Home form is strong with a nine game unbeaten run with seven wins in a row before drawing the last two.
Sheffield Wednesday are bidding to get into the promotion play-offs but aren t in the best of form in the Championship. Last weekend saw them win at Premier League Brighton and Hove Albion in the third round of the FA Cup. However, in the Championship, they have lost each of their last three league games. That s disappointing because Wednesday had been unbeaten in their previous six league fixtures. Their away form has produced five wins but six have been lost and only two of the last eight have been won. A bet on Leeds United to win this game should produce a profit.
