Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds make the short trip to Hillsborough to take on Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship on Saturday. Leeds currently sit in second place while their rivals are just one point below in third, with West Brom sitting above them both in first. Getty Images - Getty 2 Bielsa came close to leading Leeds back to the Premier League last season. Both sides featured in midweek with Sheffield Wednesday picking up three points away at Stoke, while Leeds could only manage a 1-1 draw away at Preston. A win for either side could see them close the gap on West Brom, who host Charlton at 3pm the same day.
Three points would also widen the gap between themselves and the rest of the pack chasing promotion to the Premier league.
