Spoils Shared At Hillsborough, Leeds 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday

Mateusz Klich’s second-half strike from 25-yards canceled out Reach’s first-half goal of the season contender.

Leeds once again had to come back from behind to save themselves from defeat. The first-half was dull with little chances saw the Whites fall behind to a wonder goal through Adam Reach.

The Wesnesday midfielder picked up a bouncing ball out wide in the 45th minute and hit a half volley which dipped and swerved over Peacock-Farrell them off the post and in.

Leeds could’ve easily been ahead minutes before when Douglas hit the post with a header and the following rebound from Phillips was cleared away.

Into the second-half Leeds came out instantly putting the pressure on Wednesday. With the resulting pressure Bielsa’s men found and equaliser on the 53rd minute through Mateuz Klich.

After good work from Saiz and a lay off from Roberts, the Pole picked the ball up 25-yards out and curled a brilliant effort past the scrambling Dawson in the Owls net.

For the rest of the game the boys in White bombarded the Sheffield net, Roberts had the closest efforts firstly turning on the edge of the box and curling a left-footed strike just past the far post. Then finding himself unmarked at the back post after an Ayling miss kick which left him to head the ball in from six-yards out, but luckily for the home side Thorniley was on the line to keep out the young strikers efforts.

Under Bielsa that was arguably the best that Leeds have played without getting a win, the press and chances created was far higher than any other game and with 25 shots at full time any fan of the away team must feel aggrieved reived at the result.
