Leeds United maintain Premier League push amid drama

 
Patrick Bamford of Leeds United is challenged by Bambo Diaby of Sheffield Wednesday during the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United at Hillsborough on March 08, 2024 in Sheffield, England. 

Leeds United have climbed back into the automatic promotion places after winning 2-0 at Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Patrick Bamford struck in first-half stoppage time and Willy Gnonto added a second after the break as Leeds extended their unbeaten league run in 2024 to 12 matches.

Daniel Farke's side are two points behind Championship leaders Leicester after leap-frogging Ipswich, with their promotion rivals, including Southampton, due to play on Saturday.
Wednesday missed the chance to climb out of the bottom three for the first time since August, having won five of their previous six league matches, and their four-game winning run was halted.
Leeds boss Daniel Farke felt his side fully deserved "a massive three points."

The German said: "It was a well-deserved win. I think it was a pretty mature performance, a pretty controlled performance.

"Obviously you could feel that Sheffield were on a good run, playing with confidence and an excited home crowd.

"But you have to tire the opponent, take the enthusiasm and the aggressiveness away. I'm pretty proud of my lads tonight. It was a massive three points for us."

Owls manager Danny Rohl said he was proud of his side but was booked in the second period for protesting over a foul.

He said emotions were running high due to the amount of injury time referee Sam Allison had played at the end of the first half.

"It was a key point. Of course he showed four minutes and then it was four minutes more - and everyone can think about if this is a key moment.

"I'm really not happy about this moment. We were hoping to go in at half-time at zero-zero. I will not speak too much about some decisions."
