This is actually pretty good advice from Kemar Roofe here. We’ve got a Yorkshire derby coming up!

The best way to get past the loss to Cardiff is to go out and beat Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Sunday. Wednesday is reeling a little bit, with manager Carlos Carvalhal potentially feeling a little more pressure than usual, given his performance at his pre-match press conference after losing to rivals Sheffield United in the Steel City derby last weekend. The team’s loss against Birmingham City yesterday will only increase pressure on Wednesday, and so playing them right now might be the perfect time, with Leeds looking to rebound from only the second loss while the Owls will be panicking the minute they go behind. Here’s hoping everything goes sour for them.

Anyway, on to the links.
