Sheffield Wednesday's horrible record at Elland Road continued on Saturday with a 1-0 defeat to Leeds United decided by two major incidents.

The home side took the lead when Vincent Sasso appeared to duck out of a cross, allowing the Championship's joint-leading goalscorer Chris Wood to knock in from close range.

After the break the Owls were given a lifeline when awarded what was arguably a soft penalty but Jordan Rhodes' spot kick was well saved by United stopper Robert Green.

Carlos Carvalhal said afterwards: "We didn't come here to try to protect our goal and achieve on the counter attack. We tried to ply out football and I think we did well. Keiren Westwood didn't have much to do and one mistake that we did, Leeds scored the goal."

He added: "After this there were positives, we tried and tried, achieved a penalty and had a few chances before that but we missed the penalty.

"That we didn't win wasn't because we didn't try, because we didn't fight or create chances, it was circumstances in the game. We missed a penalty, that is a part of the game. We win together and lose together and the responsibility is mine."
