Leeds United face a tough game tomorrow.

Looking to bounce back from their defeat to Birmingham City, Leeds travel to Hillsborough.

Sheffield United await the Whites, confident after their 2-1 victory away at Aston Villa.

It will be a tricky test for Marcelo Bielsa’s men but Leeds have the quality to beat the Owls.

A victory tomorrow could stretch their lead at the top of the Championship and help their promotion bid.

This is the area that Leeds must look to exploit tomorrow night against Sheffield Wednesday.

Sheffield Wednesday formation

Jos Luhukay seems to have turned things around at Sheffield Wednesday. He has got his side playing in a settled formation where everyone knows their roles.

 

But this system is not invincible and there are weaknesses to exploit.

Sheffield Wednesday usually line up in a 3-4-3 formation, deploying wing-backs and a deadly front trio.

However, Leeds must look to use their attacking players wisely and slot in around the Sheffield Wednesday positions.

Inexperienced wing-backs

In Ash Baker and Matt Penney, Sheffield Wednesday have two very talented young wing-backs.

But their lack of first-team experience will interest Bielsa. The Argentine surely knows that this is an area to target.

Their youthful exuberance could favour them going forward but if the likes of Jack Harrison, Ezgjan Alioski and Samu Saiz can use their nous to get in behind, then Leeds will cause problems.

Leeds must try to play a fluid attacking midfield trio, drifting in and out of the space behind the wing-backs and in front of the central defensive three.
