Sheffield Wed 0-1 Leeds
Leeds beat 10-man Sheffield Wednesday thanks to a David Healy penalty.

On-loan goalkeeper Brad Jones was sent off for bringing down Healy, who got up to place a precise shot past substitute keeper Chris Adamson.

Leeds were the better side after the break, but the Owls, with better luck, might have been ahead at half-time.

Deon Burton missed two good chances, Chris Brunt had a free-kick that was well saved by Tony Warner, while Lloyd Sam hit the post from a cross.

The dismissal of Jones marked an unhappy day for Middlesbrough goalkeepers.

Jones and David Knight, on loan from Boro to Oldham, were both sent off on the same afternoon.

  • Sheffield Wednesday manager Paul Sturrock:

  • "I wanted this year to show we are a hardened Championship team and I think we're getting there.

    "We had a kick in the teeth today but I was very pleased with their attitude, commitment and thoughtfulness.

    "We could have gone up to the giddy heights of eighth if we'd have won and that would have been nice."

  • Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell:

  • "It was a clear penalty.

    "The minute the keeper goes to ground he is asking for trouble.

    "We had some great chances, we've put in a solid performance and we deserved to win.
