Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to Leeds falling out of the play-offs

By Dominic Toner

Leeds were knocked out of the play-off positions on Monday – and Sheffield Wednesday fans were quick to mock their Yorkshire rivals on Twitter.

The Whites were beaten 1-0 at Elland by Wolves as Nouha Dicko scored the decisive goal in the first-half.

Garry Monk’s side fell out of the play-off spots and are now behind sixth-placed Fulham on goal difference.

Meanwhile, Wednesday managed to pick up a vital away victory at QPR, with goals from Adam Reach and Daniel Pudil securing the points.

Carlos Carvalhal’s side are now fifth in the Championship standings and two points above Leeds.

Wednesday supporters couldn’t resit taunting their rivals on Monday evening and are delighted that their promotion hopes took a massive blow.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Leeds and Wednesday have both been vying for promotion this campaign with Yorkshire well represented this season.

Monk’s side have actually won the two league meeting this season courtesy of 1-0 and 2-0 scorelines.

However, they are in the side in danger of missing out on the play-offs and have three games left to salvage their season.

They face Burton, Norwich and Wigan in their remaining matches, who they picked up seven points off in the reverse fixtures.

Wednesday will face Derby, Ipswich and Fulham in their final games and do have a two-point cushion in their favour.
