Leeds fans react on Twitter to Sheffield Wednesday defeat against Brighton
By Harvey Byrne
Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 2-1 defeat against Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Friday evening, and Leeds fans have shared a mixed reaction on Twitter.
The Yorkshire giants are currently sat in third place and are looking to bring an end to a 13-year wait for Premier League football.
They are sat in the play-offs with eight points separating them from seventh placed Derby, but seven points are also keeping them from the automatic promotion spots.
Brighton and Sheffield Wednesday are two of the clubs around them with the Seagulls now top of the league, while Wednesday sit down in sixth.
A number of Leeds fans have aired on social media that a draw would have been best for their side, while others are keen for them to make up a gap against the Owls.

Games coming thick & fast and both SWFC & BHAFC losing key players to suspension. I'll take that, we focus on our own results. #lufc

Brighton battled to a victory over Wednesday on Friday with an Anthony Knockaert double cancelling out a Lewis Dunk own goal.
However, the game was also marred by three red cards with Glenn Murray picking up a straight red for Brighton, while Steven Fletcher and Sam Hutchinson were also sent off for the Owls.
Leeds are now preparing to face 10th placed Barnsley at Oakwell on Saturday where they will be eager to continue their impressive recent form.
