Hadi Sacko has highlighted the importance of Leeds’ Championship showdown against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday afternoon at Elland Road.
Garry Monk’s team will welcome their Yorkshire rivals to their own turf looking to disrupt their neighbours’ promotion challenge.
The duo are sitting in the play-off places, level on points and a defeat in this encounter could prove to be significant at the end of the season.
Wednesday go into the match having suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brentford on Tuesday night, while their opponents recorded a 1-1 draw at Ipswich last Saturday.
Ahead of the match, winger Sacko sent this message to supporters as posted on his personal Twitter account.

Frenchman Sacko has played 33 Championship, EFL Cup and FA Cup games for his team this season, scoring two goals and supplying four assists.
He recently returned from injury and has started the club’s last two Championship matches, both of which ended in his team securing a total of four points.
However, the pacy attacker will have competition for a first team spot for this match and the rest of this campaign.
January signing duo Mo Barrow and Alfonso Pedraza, who can occupy the right flank, will be looking to make more of an impact on their new side as they push for promotion to the Premier League.
