Dave Jones is anticipating a thrilling derby as Sheffield Wednesday play Leeds United.

Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones has said that he is anticipating an "exciting" clash with Leeds United on Saturday.

In the reverse fixture, Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland was slapped by a Leeds fan, but Jones said he is confident that all the action will be on the pitch this time.

"It's a derby game, it will be exciting anyway," he told PA. "It's a big derby because it's Sheffield Wednesday and it's Leeds United, it doesn't matter if there's a new manager or not because everyone will be fired up.

"It has all the ingredients of being the game it's being billed as.

"Form and everything else goes out the window. You look for everything to get an advantage. Whatever is thrown at us we have to deal with."

The game kicks off at 12.30pm.
