Leeds fans on Twitter are hoping that Sheffield Wednesday will give them an easy game on Saturday in order to swing the promotion race in Leeds’ favour.
The Whites are embroiled in a promotion race with Wednesday’s bitter rivals Sheffield United and some Leeds fans are hoping that the Owls do their best to deny the Blades a place in the Premier League by rolling over for Leeds.
Certain fans on Twitter have been wishing that Wednesday field a weakened side to give Leeds a greater chance of being promoted.
💬 | Tyler doesn't think Sheffield Wednesday will do #LUFC any favours over their rivals: "No definitely not. They've got their own targets to get into the playoffs and will be coming to win. It's going to be a good game, and we're going into it with a lot of positivity."

But one person who doesn’t believe Leeds will be getting any help is Tyler Roberts. The midfielder doesn’t think that Wednesday will come into this game without a win in mind, saying: “They’ve got their own targets to get into the playoffs and will be coming to win. It’s going to be a good game, and we’re going into it with a lot of positivity.”
The Owls still have an outside shot at a top six finish but Leeds fans are hoping that their rivalry with Sheffield United overrides that and they let Marcelo Bielsa’s side run riot on Saturday.

If Millwall play like they did against us then they’ll get something at Bramall Lane. And if Wendies could just roll over for us that’d be fab #lufc
