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

Morison: fans' expectations unrealistic

Steve Morison says that some Leeds United's supporters expectations for this season are unrealistic. 

The striker admits that the club are not worried about relegation, but appears to suggest that holding out too lofty hopes for the side may not be realistic. 

"Fans have expectations and sometimes they’re unrealistic, considering where we were not long ago," the striker said to the Yorkshire Evening Post. "But no-one is talking about relegation or looking over our shoulders – which is a good place to be in.”

Milanic wants players to rest over international break

Leeds United manager Darko Milanic says that his players will rest up after what has been a tough start to life as Whites boss.

Leeds are winless in their last three fixtures, since Milanic took charge, but the Slovenian is taking a cautious approach with his new squad. 

“After such a difficult period, the players spent a lot of energy in these games,” Milanic said to the Yorkshire Evening Post. 

“We have to relax a little bit now and then focus our work on the next game."

“At the beginning of this week the players who’ve been involved a lot will do a bit less. The players who haven’t will do a little bit more.”

Maguire felt goal was coming

Sheffield Wednesday's Chris Maguire says that it is good to get back on the scoresheet again.

The Owls attacker netted his side's only goal of the game in their 1-1 draw with Leeds and he has revealed it is something which he felt was coming for a while. 

"It’s good to get back in that feeling of scoring goals again," he said to the club's official site. "I felt it was coming, I’ve had a few shots in the last few games."

Evans pleased with tactics

Steve Evans appears pleased with the tactics which he deployed against Norwich City at the weekend.

The Millers picked up a credible 1-1 draw against the Canaries and Evans says that the system he used worked perfectly. 

“As an away team, you have to say we’re absolutely tactically spot on when we frustrate the type of player that Norwich City have got because they’ve got fantastic players," he said to the South Yorkshire Times.

Blades want a striker

After Michael Higdon was sent off in Sheffield United's 3-2 defeat to Chesterfield they could be on the lookout for a striker.

Higdon was sent off for an overly aggressive challenge in the first half and Nigel Clough has revealed it may force him into the transfer window. 

"He will have to work to get back, I might bring in a striker now," he said to the Yorkshire Post
