Sheffield Wednesday continued their fine Championship form with a well-earned point against Leeds earlier today.
The Owls had their chances but found goalkeeper Kiko Casilla in fine form for the away side, while defender Ben White also put in another excellent display for Marcelo Bielsa’s men.
Casilla’s performance was eye-catching in its own sense but that’s not to detract from the showing from Sheffield Wednesday stopper, Kieren Westwood.
The Irishman put in yet another fine display to keep Leeds at bay, including making a wonderful save to deny Patrick Bamford a much-needed goal.
Westwood is back in the team as the regular number one after being dropped by former manager Jos Luhukay, as both Steve Bruce and now Garry Monk have opted to select the former Celtic man.
His form today didn’t go unnoticed from the home supporters either, as plenty of them took to Twitter following the game to sing his praises.
It’s safe to say that the Owls fans are delighted with their number one yet again…
Not good enough for Jos! 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️

Both keepers had good games, good to see Westwood make that kind of save. Casilla was terrific, should have got man of the match for me. #swfc
