On This Day: Sheffield Wednesday 1-2 Leeds United

Two years ago to the day, Wednesday lost their last home game of the season to Yorkshire rivals Leeds United.

Wednesday took the lead in the thirty-sixth minute after Sam Byram went in high on Lloyd Isgrove and referee Robert Marley pointed to the spot. Chris Maguire stepped up and converted from twelve yards.

However, the Whites would level a few minutes before the hour mark. A free kick led to a scramble in the area which would be poked home by Charlie Taylor.

Fifteen minutes later, Leeds would score the winner. Steve Morison raced through on goal only to see his effort saved but the now thirty-three year old would tap home the rebound.
