Pressman out after a real Owl-er.

LEEDS UTD 2 SHEFF WED 1

WEDNESDAY goalkeeper Kevin Pressman is set to make way for Owls target Pavel Srnicek after his double blunder handed Leeds their first Premiership win since September 8.

Pressman's horror show began in the 40th minute as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink ended his eight-match barren spell.

Austrian international Martin Hiden's deep throw into the Owls' six-yard box was fumbled by butter-fingers Pressman, with the ball dropping behind his head, allowing Hasselbaink to hook home with his right foot.

The goal cancelled out Wednesday's third-minute opener as Andy Booth ended the club's six-hour goal drought and his own 18-match scoreless nightmare with a powerful header.

But his joy was overshadowed by the second of Pressman's errors just after the hour. He fell over on the goal-line following a collision with Clyde Wijnhard.

It allowed 18-year-old centre-back Jonathon Woodgate, to grab the limelight with a looping header from a David Hopkin corner.
