Sheffield Wednesday host Leeds United tonight at Hillsborough, so in the spirit of ‘flashback Friday’ here’s a look back at their biggest ever win over their Yorkshire rivals four years ago.
With Stuart Gray at the helm, the Owls’ starting lineup featured Chris Kirkland, Jose Semedo and Connor Wickham against Brian McDermott’s side that included Tom Lees, Danny Pugh and Ross McCormack.
In the same fixture one season earlier, Owls ‘keeper Kirkland was attacked by Leeds fans as they got onto the pitch in the 1-1 draw.
The clash in the 2013/14 campaign was a much more one-sided affair however as Reda Johnson put Wednesday ahead before Adthe Nuhiu doubled their advantage on the stroke of half time.
Then-Leeds defender and current Owls captain Lees was replaced by Matt Smith after half time but was sent off one minute later for clattering into Johnson as they contested a header in the middle of the park.
Two more goals came from Chris Maguire and Connor Wickham, before future Sheffield United man Caolan Lavery bagged a brace to inflict Leeds’ heaviest defeat since they lost 0-6 at Manchester United on 9 September 1959.
