Leon Clarke double fires Sheffield United to derby victory over Wednesday

It was worth the wait. Five years after the last Sheffield derby, when both teams were in League One, Wednesday and United put on a brilliant, pulsating game that the Blades won 4-2. There won’t be a happier man in Yorkshire than United manager Chris Wilder, who watched his first derby from the terraces as a fan 37 years ago.

Leon Clarke, once a Wednesday player, scored twice, the others coming from John Fleck and Mark Duffy, and goals from Gary Hooper and Lucas Joao couldn’t deny the visitors their first win at Hillsborough since 2006.

Sheffield Wednesday v Sheffield United: Championship – live!

12.11pm BST

A little over 24 years ago, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday met at Wembley in an FA Cup semi-final. It didn’t really seem too extraordinary back then, although the wonderful free-kick from Chris Waddle that opened the scoring sticks in the mind to this day and there is also the memory of a grizzled Alan Cork rolling in an equaliser for the Blades. Wednesday went on to win and ran Arsenal agonisingly close in the final after a replay; it isn’t an exaggeration to say football in the Steel City has not come remotely close to a peak like that last-four clash since then, not really. Meetings between the clubs – and what a derby this is, at its best – have tended to smell of decline. Until now.

This is the first Sheffield derby in five and a half years, and the first to take place as high as the second tier in more than seven. Both teams are in the top 10 of the Championship; one of them, whatever happens, will be in the play-off positions at close of play today. While Sheffield Wednesday have come on very strong over the past two seasons under Carlos Carvalhal – perhaps not strong enough given the huge amount they’ve spent, if one is looking critically – it has been a slower route back for United after their prolonged stint in League One. Yet Chris Wilder’s team are the higher-placed of the two going into this one, lying seventh, and have started the season with real spark. Could we be about to see at least one Sheffield side finally make it back to the top flight?

Championship round-up: Cardiff City break record with third consecutive win

• Cardiff City win opening three games for first time in their 118-year history
• Wolves beat Hull; Ipswich defeat Millwall; Middlesbrough overcome Burton

Cardiff City created club history as a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United kept them top of the Sky Bet Championship.

The Welsh club had never started a campaign with three league wins in their 118-year history but that odd statistic was consigned to history as Sean Morrison and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing put the gloss on a performance that suggests Cardiff may be credible promotion contenders this season.

Samu Saiz nets hat-trick for Leeds to sink Port Vale in Carabao Cup

• Fellow debutant Caleb Ekuban also among the goals
• Ched Evans comes off bench to rescue Sheffield United

Samu Saiz scored a hat-trick on his debut as Leeds eased into the second round of the Carabao Cup with a 4-1 win over Port Vale at Elland Road.

Saiz, a reported £3m summer signing from Spanish club Huesca in July, took 13 minutes to make an impression when he smashed home a rebound from close range. Despite Michael Tonge’s equaliser against his former club, Saiz netted twice more in as many minutes in the second half, before fellow debutant Caleb Ekuban added a late fourth.
