Daniel Farke: I think it was well deserved

Boss shares his views on the win in South Yorkshire.


Leeds United beat Sheffield Wednesday away from home on Friday night, to extend their unbeaten run in 2024.

The Whites have now made it 12 without defeat in the Sky Bet Championship, with 11 of those games being victories.

Speaking after the win at Hillsborough, Daniel Farke gave his thoughts on the game to the media.

He said: “I think it was well deserved.

"Overall it was a pretty, pretty mature performance and pretty controlled performance.

"Obviously you could feel that Sheffield Wednesday were on a good run and they play with confidence,

“They had an excited home crowd, they're always good on the counter attack and they are dangerous on the counter attack, dangerous from set pieces.

“It was important that we had so much control over the game already in the first half.

“But then, also you have to prepare, you have to tire the opponents a bit and take their enthusiasm and aggressiveness away in the first half.

“Perhaps we allowed them to have a few too many corners, that was the only point I can criticise.

“One big chance for them was when Illan was there, it was a world class save. But apart from this, we were pretty much in control.”
