Sports Mole previews this Friday's Championship contest between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United.

Sheffield Wednesday will be under increasing pressure if they fail to get a result against Leeds United this Friday in the Championship.

The Owls currently sit in the bottom three of the league table after taking just eight points from 10 matches this season but manager Dave Jones could witness a turnaround if his men overcome Neil Warnock's Leeds side.

The Whites can move into the playoff places if they snatch three points at the Hillsborough stadium on Friday as they hope to build on their five-match unbeaten run.

Jones is likely to opt for Chris O'Grady and loanee Jay Bothroyd up front, while Warnock is expected to choose Luciano Becchio and El-Hadj Diouf to lead the line.
