This weekend sees the return of Leeds United to Hillsborough following the scenes at last years derby

The Local rivalry has always been intense in Yorkshire but in recent years has become a huge matter of importance in the Championship - with Leeds, Barnsley, Doncaster, Huddersfield and Middlesborough all vying for top spot after Hull managed promotion last year.

Leeds 'fan' Aaron Cawley ran onto the pitch and assaulted Wednesday's keeper Chris Kirkland following a goal from Michael Tongue.

Cawley was banned from all football for six years but has said he “cant wait” for this year's game.

The derby always a heated affair last year reached fever pitch following Cawley's attack and the battle between the Wednesday defence and former premier league star Michael Brown resulting in the most ridiculous tackle ever made.

Leeds come into the Derby in eighth spot in the table but on a run of five losses, but new signings could boost the squad.

Wednesday are still without a manager but come into the match only losing one of their last six which has taken them clear of the drop zone.

The game no matter what is expected to be a feisty encounter and after last year a heavy police presence is expected for the game.
