Redfearn unlucky not to land Leeds job
Leeds United great Peter Lorimer says that Neil Redfearn can consider himself unlucky not to have landed the permanent job at Elland Road.
Redfearn was placed in charge of Leeds for four games as caretaker manager and guided the Whites to 10 points, but it was still not enough for him to be handed the full-time job.
Instead Darko Milanic has been appointed and Lorimer feels that Redfearn has been unlucky not to take charge, but he should understand the decision.
"He’s been a bit unlucky to be overlooked for the head coach’s role but to be fair, he’s lost out to someone who has a long background in coaching at a good level so I guess he has to accept that Massimo Cellino had a different plan," he wrote in the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Huddersfield need to stop poor form, says Butterfield
Jacob Butterfield has warned his Huddersfield Town teammates that things could go wrong for the side if they don't break out of their slump.
“I know it’s still early days but this can’t carry on," he said to the Examiner.
“We’ve got to get our season ticking over or we’ll end up in trouble.”
Gray: That shows the gulf
Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray believes that the Owls 7-0 humiliation against Manchester City highlights the difference in standard between top Premier League clubs and second-division sides.
“It just showed the gulf between the Championship and one of the top four teams in the Premier League is huge," he told the Sheffield Telegraph.
Luciano Becchio wants goals
Luciano Becchio says that he wants to start hitting the back of the net for Rotherham United.
The Millers signed Becchio on loan from Norwich over the summer and he bagged his first goal last weekend.
It was a strike that has given him the taste for getting on the scoresheet and the Argentine is now hoping to do it on a more regular basis.
“I am very happy to come here. Hopefully we can get some points while I am here," he said to the Star.
“I just want to score goals. Goals, goals, goals. That’s my job.”
Wallace makes impact
James Wallace appears to have the desired effect at Sheffield United after his performance in their midweek clash against Leyton Orient.
The summer signing was at the heart of the Blades midfield on Tuesday after being ruled out with injury for most of his opening spell at the club and Nigel Clough has hailed the effect that he had on the side.
“James got us going,” Clough said to the Star. “He gave us a bit of aggression in midfield, too, which we’ve been missing recently.”
