Young Wednesday defender Tommy Spurr won't be able to keep everyone happy on Saturday afternoon - with friends and family sitting in both the home and away stands at Elland Road on Saturday.
In an exclusive interview with Vital Sheffield Wednesday, the Leeds-born left-back revealed his excitement of travelling back to his home town in the blue of white of Wednesday - but he knows he'll have to upset some of his family members whatever the final score is.
'It should be a good one because I have a lot of friends and family who support Leeds so there'll be split loyalties on Saturday,' he said.
'My family want Leeds to do well and to win but they'll still be supporting me. Most of them are Leeds fans, but I've been going to Hillsborough with my Dad since I was nine so he'll be sat in the Wednesday end supporting me and hoping for a Wednesday win.'
The 19-year-old played his first match against his hometown club in August as David Healy's dubious penalty gave the Whites all three points in front of the Sky cameras at Hillsborough - and he insists that revenge is a dish best served cold.
He continued: 'It's a big local derby and it's going to be a great atmosphere. The Wednesday fans will be there in their thousands and hopefully they'll be cheering us on to get us a vital three points. Leeds are going to be really up for it because they need the win and we're going to have to match them and continue our good win from the weekend.'
And Spurr is happy to continue at left-back, or move to his desired centre-back position if need be - just so long as he's continuing his progression in the Owls first team.
'I started off in the academy as a centr-half and played there throughout the youth team but I suddenly came in to the first team and was needed at left-back so I've been happy to play there. I'm trying to adapt my game to left-back and as long as I'm getting in the team I'll play anywhere.' he added.
Saturday's clash against Dennis Wise's men will be Spurr's 27th league start for the Owls since former boss Paul Sturrock gave him his debut against Luton back in August.
