Sheffield Wednesday ran out the winners in an enthralling Yorkshire derby at Elland Road this afternoon as they condemned Paul Heckingbottom’s side to a 2-1 home defeat.
Leeds had no answer when the Owls took the lead for the second time in the game through striker Atdhe Nuhiu, and the win all but secures the Owls’ Championship status ahead of next season, when they will be hoping to go somewhat better than this season.
The main man today was though of course, striker Nuhiu, who bagged both goals to give the Owls the win and draw plenty of reaction towards him on social media.
Nuhui is often a target for criticism by Wednesday fans, but today he was brilliant, and following the game, the Owls fans were, in fairness, quick to come out and praise the big striker.
We at FLW were on hand to see exactly what the Wednesday fans were saying, and it’s safe to say the the big man is the talk of the town tonight over in Sheffield…
Well done Big Dave and Wednesday massive today that.. get in ????????????????????????
