Hint Adryan could start
Adryan has been left out of Leeds United's U21 clash with Bristol City today, suggesting he could be in line to be involved with the first-team on Friday night, when the Whites take on Rotherham United.
The Brazilian playmaker has played in every U21 game since his arrival in the club over the sumer, but he was not involved today and that could suggest that Darko Milanic intends to use him in the first-team soon.
Lavery impressed by May
Sheffield Wednesday's Caolan Lavery has been impressed by the impact that Stevie May has made since arriving over the summer.
May joined Wednesday from St. Johnstone in the Owls' marquee summer transfer and Lavery, who has had to watch from the sidelines after picking up an injury, says that the Scottish striker has settled in well.
“Stevie has done well,” he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. “He has scored a few goals and works really hard and that helps the team a lot. Hard work goes a long way in this division.
Hudson grateful for international break
Mark Hudson says that he is grateful for the international break, despite Huddersfield Town's good form in recent weeks.
The Terriers have improved massively under the stewardship of Chris Powell and seemed to be collecting momentum, which many felt may have been halted by the two week absence, but Hudson says it has been a good thing.
"It’s been an intense spell, and we have one or two lads carrying knocks, so it’s a good chance to recover," he said to the Examiner.
"It’s also a chance for the manager to do some different things on the training pitch."
Draws feels like a defeat
Sheffield United's James Wallace admits that the club's 2-2 draw against Leyton Orient feels like a defeat.
The Blades seemed to have completed a late comeback, only to concede in the final minute in stoppage time and Wallace revealed that the dressing room felt deflated after letting the three points slip from their grasp.
"It does seem like a defeat," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "That second goal overshadowed our performance. It’s the best performance we’ve had all season but the lads are devastated about Orient’s late goal. That performance was a promotion performance."
