We all love a local derby. Whether it be Liverpool v Everton, Real Madrid v Atletico or Rangers v Celtic, you can always guarantee there will be memorable moments.

Today, we encountered a slightly lesser-profiled Yorkshire derby between Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday.

Both teams had made good starts to the season and you would expect them to be challenging for the play-offs at the very least come the end of the season.

Wednesday ended up winning the game 1-0, with Fernando Forestieri converting from the penalty spot. 

But despite the game not living up to its explosive potential, we were still treated to a memorable bit of prankster fun from Owls midfielder, Ross Wallace.


Terriers' sub Michael Hefele came on with around five minutes of the game to go and immediately headed for striker Elias Kachunga with a piece of paper - presumably with some instructions from the coaching team.

Cue ex-Burnley ace Wallace arriving out of nowhere to steal the note and scour the paper for information.

He had a huge smile on his face, but the same cannot be said for Kachunga who snatched the note back and snarled at 5 ft 6 in winger to get away.

You can see the video below.

We're with you, Ross, we can see the funny side. However it's understandable why Town's number nine didn't quite get the joke, considering his team were trailing with not too long left on the clock.

It seems that whatever was on the note was not enough to inspire Kachunga - or his teammates - to grab an equaliser.

The result sees Wednesday climb up to seventh in the table while Huddersfield remain third, having squandering the opportunity to leapfrog Newcastle and Norwich to go top.

It was also the end of the Terriers' 100% win record at the John Smith's Stadium this season.
