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

Language barrier still proving difficult

Leeds United striker Steve Morison says that communication problems are still proving difficult for   the squad.

The Whites brought in a number of foreign players over the summer and Morison admits that it is hard to get over the language barrier.

“We struggled a little bit with the language barrier," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "On the pitch, in the heat of the battle and the moment, it is important to get info to each other. I remember one point that I was trying to talk to Mirco in the middle of the pitch and they took a quick free-kick. Normally, you are running and shouting.”

Gray on Norwich match

Stuart Gray has suggested that Sheffield Wednesday drew with Norwich City at the weekend, because their players were 'in awe' for a spell of the game.

The two sides fought out a 0-0 draw, but Gray clearly felt that his side paid the Canaries high-profile too much respect during the game.

“I just felt there was a 10 or 15 minute period when we were in awe of Norwich instead of being in their faces and making life difficult for them," he said to the Pinkun

Powell defends decision

Chris Powell has defended his decision to put Harry Bunn and Sean Scannell on the substitutes' bench when Huddersfield Town took on Ipswich Town.

Powell benched the wing duo, despite their good form, but he insists that it was the right decision, even after they came on to help the side come from behind to claim a 2-2 draw.

“I want to be careful, because Sean and Harry have made such an impact and I want them to do that long term as well," he said to the Examiner.

“They’ve carried the team forward, created chances and scored goals."

Evans on draw

Steve Evans admits that his Rotherham United side have had to handle a big step-up in class since being promoted last season.

The Millers have made an encouraging start in the Championship, but Evans still thinks that they have had some adjusting to do.

At the weekend they managed to pick up a 1-1 draw against Brighton, but Evans feels his team's performance would have been worth more if it was at League One level.

"Stepping up to the Championship has been tough as, had this game been in League One, we would have scored three times," he said to the Yorkshire Post
