'Will come out on top' – Sky Sports pundit picks a winner in Leeds v Sheffield Wednesday

Sky Sports pundit David Prutton has stated that his old club Leeds United, as well as Sheffield Wednesday, need to do better ahead of the visit of the Owls to Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday.

Nonetheless, he has still predicted a win for the Whites.

Paul Heckingbottom’s introduction at the club hasn’t exactly had the desired effect so far, with the Whites recording just one league victory since the sacking of Thomas Christiansen back at the start of February.

And writing in his Sky Sports column, the ex-midfielder said: “Two of my former clubs face off at Elland Road – Wednesday need to ensure they aren’t dragged into a very late-season relegation fight, while with Leeds you feel that it’s more about Paul Heckingbottom being able to assess how good his squad is between now and the end of the season.

“I think Leeds will come out on top here, but both clubs need to do better.”

It’s hard to believe looking at this side that they were a team who were once certainties for the play-offs, so bad has been their form since the opening couple of months for the season. Were it not for that fantastic spell at the beginning of the campaign, they could have been looking relegation square in the face. Wednesday are no better and with the run of form they’re on, you’d expect Leeds to pick up maximum points at Elland Road, but nothing is certain where the Whites are concerned so it wouldn’t surprise Football Insider if this ended a draw.
