Sheffield Wednesday went into today’s Championship clash with Leeds United knowing that victory could potentially put us top of the second tier table given we kicked off ahead of everyone else.
Unfortunately, manager Garry Monk wasn’t celebrating that at the full time whistle as with so much at stake in the Yorkshire Derby, the weather conditions on the day didn’t really aid the game and it ended in a scoreless draw.
There were a couple of chances of note, but it was hardly a great game of football, but in fairness either side could’ve nicked it, so a point on the day is probably the right result.
Wednesday stay in third place in the table for now.
Speaking to the BBC following the final whistle, Monk said of our efforts on the day.
“It was two really good teams going at it in those conditions, but overall our performance warranted the three points. If any team was going to win the game, we deserved it, especially in the second half as we were so dominant, and we had the most offensive actions in the whole game. You won’t often see Leeds under that pressure, and it was them scrambling towards the end.”
