The Owls moved back into the top six.

Leeds were knocked off the top of the Championship table following a 2-0 defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

Former United boss Garry Monk returned to thwart his ex-employees as Jacob Murphy and Atdhe Nuhiu hit late goals.

Jack Harrison missed two good chances and Patrick Bamford had a goal ruled out for offside as Leeds enjoyed the better of the first half.

But they found the second half tougher going as Wednesday successfully stifled their creativity.

And the South Yorkshire side were given their rewards when Murphy beat Kiko Casilla from a narrow angle.

Nuhiu wrapped the points up four minutes into stoppage time after Adam Reach teed him up.

It left Leeds six points ahead of third-placed Brentford in the race for automatic promotion.

Luke Ayling and Helder Costa both had chances for the hosts inside the first 10 minutes.

Massimo Luongo headed well wide from a Barry Bannan corner after 10 minutes with a free header.

Bamford failed to get hold of his shot after he had won the ball back, while Murphy fired a first-time shot wide after Liam Cooper did enough to put him off.

Harrison volleyed wide from close range when Kalvin Phillips picked him out.

Bamford had a header chalked off five minutes later after Mateusz Klich was ruled offside in the build-up.

Cameron Dawson brilliantly tipped a Harrison shot around the post in the 27th minute, before Julian Borner failed to keep a 20-yard half-volley down.

Dawson saved a Bamford shot at his near post and Costa smashed over in stoppage time.

Bamford shot over three minutes after the restart after Costa got to the byline and picked him out.

Sam Winnall just failed to get on the end of Murphy's ball across goal a minute later and then fired a brilliant chance over after a Morgan Fox header fell kindly.

Costa failed to find the target as Leeds were once again restricted to shots from long range.

Dawson saved a curling effort from Klich four minutes later, before Casilla had to turn away Murphy's goalbound inswinging corner.

Reach fired over with a cross-shot in the 74th minute, before Harrison missed the target with a header with 10 minutes to go.

Murphy's low shot squirmed past Casilla in the 87th minute to give Wednesday the lead, and it was game over when Reach got in behind the defence and set up Nuhiu deep into stoppage time.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
