We bring you the latest news from Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United and Sheffield United.

Norwood: Elland Road is fantastic

Reading midfielder Olivier Norwood says that Elland Road is a fantastic stadium and that he can't wait to play there. 

Norwood's Royals side travel to Leeds United tonight, where they will be looking to pick up a result and the midfielder was very complimentary towards the setting he would be playing in.

“It’s another tough game,” Norwood said to Get Reading. “It’s always great to go and play in a fantastic stadium."

“I’ve won one and lost one up there so far in my career so it’s not too bad a record."

“They always get a good backing and have good fans so it will be a great atmosphere."

Gray frustrated

Stuart Gray was left frustrated after his Sheffield Wednesday team were only able to pick up a point against Ipswich Town last night.

The Owls drew 1-1 in a game which they had the majority of the possession, but Gray was left rueing their struggles with finding an end product. 

“We had decent possession but it’s about picking out the right pass," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph.

“We were trying to either force things or picking the wrong option.”

Evans: result as good as any

Steve Evans says that Rotherham United's 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers was as good as any the club have achieved in their history.

The Millers were the better side throughout and deserved their points - which Evans was clearly very proud of. 

"We don’t kid ourselves we’re still adjusting to life in the Championship but we’ve welcomed the former Premier League Champions and that’s as equal to any result we’ve achieved as a football club," he said to the club's official site.

Clough wants 90 minutes from Blades

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough says that the Blades need to start performing for 90 minutes.

The side have turned into the comeback kings this season, after a number of dramatic turnarounds, but Clough wants his men to turn up from the off. 

“We’d like to play with the same intensity in the first-half of games as we do the second," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "It feels like more than a win when you do it late but, ideally, it would be nice to have a little less drama at times."
