Elland Road East Stand

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

Evans still respects Leeds

Steve Evans says that he still has enormous respect for Leeds United, despite being the mastermind behind Rotherham United's victory over them. 

Evans had complemented Leeds several times before the match between the two sides, but even after beating them he holds them in high regard.

“It was a hard-earned victory against a football club I have got enormous respect for," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "We were disappointed to be behind at half-time. We made the change and second half we played more like we can play.”

Hutchinson to be assessed

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray says that he is disappointed to have lost Sam Hutchinson to injury.

The defender picked up a knock during the club's game against Watford at the weekend and Gray admits it has been a blow for the team. 

“Sam’s gone up for a header and rocked his knee a little when he landed and had to come off," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "I’m really disappointed for the boy because all he wants to do is play football.”

Coady happy with win

Conor Coady has explained that the entire Huddersfield Town squad are behind new manager Chris Powell.

Powell was brought in by the Terriers and has improved performances massively and Coady believes their latest victory - a 4-2 win against Blackpool - will be huge.

"It was a great win, and a big team effort," he said to the Examiner. "We are all in this together, and the whole club wants to move forward."

“The lads have taken to the manager, and we now need to keep going and knock out the mistakes.”

Sheffield United goalscorer happy to score

Sheffield United goalscorer Bob Harris says that he was delighted to get on the scoresheet against Bradford City.

Harris lashed in the Blades first goal of the match in spectacular style and he admits that it was a striker which he was really pleased to score.

“Jame Murphy did excellently," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "I said at half-time, if he could cut the ball back to me I could have a go and that time he cut it back to me and I hit the target. It’s a nice feeling to get on the scoresheet."
