And that's it from us.

Sheffield Wednesday move into the top six thanks to a double from Gary Hooper.

Yorkshire rivals Leeds remain 12 points outside the play-off places.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Cheers!

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Hooper told Sky Sports: "It's the last game of my loan spell but I'd like to stay. I'm playing and scoring goals.

"I'm happy here but we've just got to see what happens now."

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Sheffield Wednesday forward Fernando Forestieri told Sky Sports: "The team played with the right mentality and that's good.

"This game is for the fans because they gave us a lot of support.

"If we play like that then we can do something important for the club."


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

The referee blows for full-time and Sheffield Wednesday move into the top six.

Leeds dominated the first half but went behind just after the restart when Gary Hooper scrambled home.

Hooper grabbed his second minutes later when Marco Silvestri spilled a Fernando Forestieri shot.

Leeds thought they had got back in it when Liam Cooper scrambled home a free-kick with 12 minutes to go but it was disallowed in controversial circumstances after the referee failed to spot that the hosts had not completed a substitution.

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Into stoppage time now.

Four minutes to play and Sheffield Wednesday are heading into the top six.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Gary Hooper can be content with his day's work and he'll watch the final few minutes of the game from the bench.

Portuguese midfielder Jose Semedo is on in his place

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Wednesday striker Gary Hooper tries his luck from the halfway line... It doesn't go in, I'll say that.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Midfielder Ross Wallace makes way for Jeremy Helan.

DISALLOWED GOAL - Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Controversy here.

Leeds think they are back in with Liam Cooper scrambling home from a free-kick but the goal is disallowed with the Wednesday substitution not having been completed.

From the re-take Scott Wootton has a header cleared off the line.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

There'll be no goal for Fernando Forestieri today.

He's subbed off for Portugal international Lucas Joao.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Mirco Antenucci comes on for Alex Murphy.

The Italian forward is likely to go up front with Souleymane Doukara and you'd expect Leeds to switch to a 4-4-2 now.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Daniel Pudil hacks down Giuseppe Bellusci as the Leeds man looks to motor into the Wednesday half.

The free-kick is easily cleared.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Leeds bring on midfielder Alex Mowatt for winger Mustapha Carayol.

The Middlesbrough loanee had looked lively in the first half but his second half has mirrored that of his team.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Leeds have hardly had a sniff this half but Souleymane Doukara shows they're not totally out of it with a fierce low strike from 18 yards that hits the outside of the post.

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

I make that four shots from outside the area from Fernando Forestieri in this second half.

The former Italy Under-21 man slices wide on this occasion but I suspect he might just try his luck again before the game is up.

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Leeds are going to have to get more men forward if they are going to get back in this game now.

Stuart Dallas motors down the left and puts a n inviting cross into the Wednesday area but he has only Souleyman Doukara to aim for.


Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Away midfielder Lewis Cook is in the book for a nasty tackle on Wednesday full-back Jack Hunt.

The last thing Leeds now is to be reduced to 10-men.

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

Huge amount of work for Leeds to do now.

Have to say I did not see this coming at half-time but the Whites are going to have to do something drastic to get back in this match and the Owls are all over them this half.

GOAL (Hooper)

Sheff Wed 2-0 Leeds

If the goalkeeping was bad on the first goal it's even worse this time around.

Fernando Forestieri runs at Leeds and takes a shot from just outside the area, Marco Silvestri sees the ball bounce back off his body and Gary Hooper tucks in from six yards.

GOAL (Hooper)

Sheff Wed 1-0 Leeds

Well, it's against the run of play but Sheffield Wednesday fans wont care.

Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri needlessly concedes a corner when he spills a Fernando Forestieri shot around the post when the shot was clearly going wide.

From the resultant corner Leeds fail to clear their lines and Forestieri gets a low cross into the area and Gary Hooper scrambles the ball in from all of three inches out.

The two teams are back out and Leeds get us started up.

Goals at White Hart Lane

I just mentioned it was goalless between Tottenham and Sunderland in our 12:45 GMT Premier League kick-off...

Well the teams are still level but it's now 1-1.

Patrick van Aanholt gave Sunderland a surprise lead, but Christian Eriksen equalised just two minutes later.

Approaching half-time in that one.

Saturday's fixture list

Here's today's Championship line-up in full...

Saturday fixture list

Still to come...

After we're done and dusted in West Yorkshire, there's another 11 Championship games for you to enjoy this afternoon.

Leaders Middlesbrough, who haven't conceded a goal in the league since 7 November, host managerless strugglers Bristol City while second-placed Hull have a home game against Charlton, back under the management of Jose Riga.

Elsewhere, there's a trip to Rotherham for QPR, who are winless under new boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and sold striker to Charlie Austin earlier today and under-pressure Cardiff boss Russell Slade takes his Bluebirds to Wolves.

All-square at White Hart Lane

We've got one other game under way this afternoon in the Premier League where Tottenham are currently being held 0-0 by Sunderland.

You can follow the action from White Hart Lane here.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

And that's the half.

Good, open stuff from both teams but no breakthrough yet.

You'd say Leeds will be the more content of the two teams. They've looked really good on the counter attack and Souleymane Doukara and Lewis Cook have both gone close.

Wednesday blew a good opening when Gary Hooper headed over early on.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Another Leeds counter attack after their midfielders pinch the ball in a good position.

This one ends with Souleymane Doukara sending a 25-yard effort too close to home keeper Lewis Price.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Leeds striker Souleymane Doukara has worked hard for little reward so far today.

Leeds United 2 goals info

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri is called into action for the first time today.

Fernando Forestieri warms his palms with a powerful effort from 16 yards that the Italian handles relatively easily.


Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Giuseppe Bellusci boots Fernando Forestieri 45 yards from the Leeds goal and is booked.

Think it's fair to say that's no surprise.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Leeds pinch the ball just inside the Wednesday half and Lewis Cook runs in on goal.

The teenager is short of support and drags his effort just wide of the post.


Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

That's a 12th booking of the season for Wednesday midfielder Sam Hutchinson, the most in the Championship.

He can have zero complaints there as he absolutely scythes down Leeds winger Mustapha Carayol near the halfway line.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Good ball into the near post area by Leeds winger Stuart Dallas is just missed by Lewis Cook and Mustapha Carayol.

Goalless after 30 minutes but there's been no shortage of endeavour.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Wednesday right-back Jack Hunt has shown more than once today that he's going to look to get forward as often as possible.

He wins a corner for his team but Barry Bannan slices his attempt at recreating the famous David Beckham to Paul Scholes goal from all those years ago.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Bit of a lull in play, which is hardly surprising after the frenetic start we had.

Leeds winger Stuart Dallas, in for the Everton-bound Sam Byram, has shown some neat touches down the United right.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Barry Bannan scurries forward for Sheffield Wednesday and finds Fernando Forestieri unmarked on the edge of the Leeds area.

The former Watford man doesn't realise quite how free he is and rather than shooting tries to give it back to the Scot. Let-off for Leeds.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

It seems that Giuseppe Bellusci hasn't forgiven Italian compatriot Fernando Forestieri for turning down the Whites in the summer.

Before the Leeds breakaway a couple of minutes ago the defender threw the forward to the floor in the area and replays suggest he was very lucky not to concede a penalty.

One to keep an eye on.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Stunning save from Lewis Price in the Wednesday goal.

He fumbles Stuart Dallas' initial effort but atones for it with a great reaction stop from Souleymane Doukara's follow-up.

Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Real end-to-end stuff just at the moment.

The Owls almost get in when Barry Bannan intercepts a poor pass from Luke Murphy but can't find Fernando Forestieri in the box and moments later the visitors create an opening of their own but Souleymane Doukara miscues from 15 yards and the ball goes through to Lewis Price in the Wednesday goal.


Sheff Wed 0-0 Leeds

Gary Hooper heads just over from six yards after Jack Hunt's deflected cross.

The former Celtic man scored twice against Bolton on Tuesday and should perhaps have done better.
