Sheff Wed 1-0 Leeds
Chris Eagles scored a free-kick to give Sheffield Wednesday victory over Leeds and their first win in seven matches.

Eagles scored after Shaun Derry conceded a needless foul with just eight minutes gone.

Neil Sullivan brilliantly saved a David Graham header, while Leeds substitute Robbie Blake shot inches wide.

Paul Butler then headed over and David Lucas saved Rob Hulse's header for Leeds, while Wednesday's Chris Brunt hit the post from 20 yards.

  • Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock:
    "We played it down the channels and we got crosses in and we caused them problems.

    "They came back at us and caused us all sorts of concerns but the defence held firm and the team has been absolutely magnificent.

    "We got back to what we were good at last year - getting the ball down and getting in people's faces."

  • Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell:
    "They caught us cold. One or two of our lads didn't get up to derby pace and it was a really poor goal to lose the game to.

    "But all credit to them. They played with a tremendous spirit and got great backing from the crowd.

    "If you get them going here it's a tremendous place, but we created enough chances to get something."
