Loan watch: Murphy scores, Woodman keeps derby clean sheet

Written by Dan King

Jacob Murphy's third goal of the season helped Sheffield Wednesday shock Championship league leaders Leeds on Saturday.

The 24-year-old played the full game at Elland Road and put his side in front in the 87th minute, racing onto Atdhe Nuhiu's pass and firing home from the right-hand side of the penalty area.

Nuhiu then made it 2-0 in stoppage time to seal a fine victory for the Owls, who currently occupy the division's final play-off place.

They're one place ahead of Swansea City, who drew 0-0 in their South Wales derby with Cardiff City. Freddie Woodman kept his ninth clean sheet of the season, although he was rarely tested by the home side and refused to take too much of the credit.

"Personally, it's great to get another clean sheet; that's three on the spin now," he told Swansea's official website after the game. "That's always nice as a goalkeeper and a defensive unit.

"I think there's too much focus on the goalkeeper when it comes to clean sheets; it's down to the whole team. The lads are constantly putting their bodies on the line and it always helps me as a goalkeeper."

In League One, Rotherham United went top with a 3-1 win at Oxford United. Daniel Barlaser started and came off in added time. Rolando Aarons was an unused substitute as Wycombe lost 4-0 to Sunderland in what was the final match of his loan spell with the Chairboys.
