Morning Leeds-in for 17 March: Heckingbottom has another chance to win a Yorkshire derby

Plus links for the day

Leeds United V Sheffield Wednesday  - Sky Bet Championship

Another Yorkshire derby for Leeds, but will Paul Heckingbottom lead Leeds to victory?

Leeds head coach Heckingbottom has been on the other end of a Leeds victory in a Yorkshire derby this season, as he was the manager at Barnsley FC when Leeds won at Oakwell. However, he has another opportunity to win a Yorkshire derby while in charge of Leeds, and this time, it’s at home.

Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds could both really use a win right now, with Leeds looking for some momentum to carry them forward for next season and Wednesday looking to avoid being dragged into the relegation fight near the bottom of the table.

So will Heckingbottom get the result in a Yorkshire derby, and if he fails to start winning games, what does that say about the team and about him?
