Leeds United

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

Cellino's great gesture

It has been a bad week for Massimo Cellino's reputation after he sacked his second manager of the season this week. 

However, Cellino's gesture today should earn him some plaudits. 

The Italian owner purchased 40 un-bought tickets for a motor neurone disease event at Elland Road to ensure that the charity hosting it did not make a loss. 

It was a classy touch from the Leeds owner and one which deserves a lot of praise. 

Taylor-Fletcher reveals aims

Sheffield Wednesday signing Gary Taylor-Fletcher says that the club need to start turning draws into victories soon.

The club's lack of goals have stopped them winning as much as they would have wanted too and Taylor-Fletcher wants to rectify this soon.

“It was a good point but we have to move on and try and turn these draws into wins and that’s what we will be trying to do," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "There is a good team spirit here and everyone is together."

Revell delighted with form

Rotherham United striker Alex Revell has said that he is delighted to be on such good form, after a slow start to Championship life.

Revell has scored three times in the last three games for the club and he admits that it is a big relief. 

"I’m delighted to score three in three," he said to the South Yorkshire Times

“I needed a run like this. It’s finally coming, I’ve got good players around me."

Clough didn't want MK Dons

Nigel Clough has revealed that Sheffield United did not want to draw MK Dons in the League Cup.

The two League One clubs take each-other on tonight and Clough says that he was hoping to avoid a team from the same league in the competition. 

“It wasn’t the draw we wanted," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "I would imagine MK Dons feel the same. They will have been disappointed, though maybe a bit happier because they got a home draw."
