Darko Milanic targets "extremely important" derby

Leeds United manager Darko Milanic says that it is "extremely important" that his troops beat Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday to secure his first win.

Darko Milanic has claimed that it is "extremely important" for his Leeds United team to beat Sheffield Wednesday in Saturday's Yorkshire derby.

Milanic is still searching for his first win as United boss, having overseen Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Brentford and last night's 0-0 draw with Reading, which he describes as a "very positive result".

"We deserved one point [against Reading]," he told Sky Sports News. "We wanted to make it three but it's also a very positive result."

When asked about this weekend's clash at Elland Road, the 46-year-old added: "It's extremely important.

"It will be different. Sheffield play different and it will be difficult. They have one day more to regenerate, but we have to do our best."

Saturday's clash gets underway at 12.45pm.
