Sheffield Wednesday host Leeds United at Hillsborough on Sunday in the English Championship’s big lunchtime kick-off.
The Owls are going into the match with manager Carlos Carvalhal under significant pressure after a poor start to the season. His side have failed to win their last three matches and have suffered two defeats in the last seven days to Birmingham City and rivals Sheffield United.
Leeds meanwhile are sitting in the play-off positions after 10 matches and a win away today will see them propelled into an automatic promotion spot.
That may be why Wednesday fans are fearing the worst ahead of kick-off with many believing this will be the latest poor result under the management of Carvalhal. Some even reckon defeat could spell the end of his reign at the club.
It’s all set to be a cracker of a fixture and with a lot riding on the result for both teams, could be a cagey affair.
Owls supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts ahead of kick-off…
Would love to see Carlos try something different today, but fear he is too stubborn to adapt and that will cost him his job. #swfc

At least we can only drop one place when Weeds beat our tactics that were implemented a year ago and WILL NOT be changed!! #swfc
