It looks like Matthew Pennington will get a chance to replace Liam Cooper at CB against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday.

We noted when he signed for Leeds that Pennington started, and scored a goal, in a Merseyside Derby against Liverpool for Everton, so he’s going to be used to the pressure that comes in big matches. He’s been cool under pressure so far this season, and he showed why many tipped him to be first choice alongside Pontus Jansson instead of Cooper before he was injured against Bolton Wanderers during the first match of the season.

Anyway, more about the Sheffield Wednesday match in the preview, so read it when it gets published later today.
