Leeds United’s rotten run of form continued on Saturday when Sheffield Wednesday walked away from Elland Road with all three points.

Atdhe Nuhui’ second-half brace proved enough for the Owls to claim victory in yet another Yorkshire derby defeat for Paul Heckingbottom.

The Whites have won just one Championship game since Boxing Day and appear to be in freefall as sacking Thomas Christiansen and replacing him with Heckingbottom appears to have unearthed more issues within the squad rather than making any kind of progress.

Caleb Ekuban missed a number of chances in the first-half and may now be sweating over his place in the starting line-up after the international break with Pierre-Michel Lasogga on the bench for a second game in a row.

Leeds were made to pay for them missed opportunities in the 71st minute when Nuhiu beat Bailey Peacock-Farrell in the home side’s goal.

Jay-Roy Grot came off the bench and got United back in the game with four minutes to go but Nuhiu would make sure that Sheffield Wednesday would walk away with all three points.
