Yorkshire latest: Redfearn has no fears with young squad; Gray frustrated with striker

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

Redfearn backs youth

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn believes that the club's youngsters can perform for the first-team.

The Whites had four academy-prospects on the pitch against Cardiff City at the weekend, but Redfearn is not worried about a lack of experience.

"In the end, we had [Sam] Byram, [Chris] Dawson, [Lewis] Cook and [Alex] Mowatt on the pitch. They’re going to be good players," Redfearn told the club's official site. "It makes the team quite young which might be an issue but if they’re good enough, they’re old enough."

Gray frustrated with Nuhiu

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray has criticised Atedhe Nuhiu after he went down easily in the box against Charlton Athletic.

Although a penalty could have been awarded, when Nuhiu looked to be upended by Andre Bikey, Gray believes that the striker should have looked to score, rather than win a penalty. 

"We don’t seem to get many penalties at the moment, but there was no need for Nuhiu to go down, ” he said to the Yorkshire Post. “His next thought should have been to get a shot off."

Powell ambitious

Chris Powell won't limit how far Huddersfield Town can go under his stewardship. 

The Terriers boss has done a fantastic job since being appointed, turning the side's season around, and he refused to rule out a promotion push this campaign.

“I’m going to push them to be the best they can because you just never know where that will take you," he said to the Examiner

McEveley on McCarthy

Sheffield United defender Jay McEveley is hoping that Paddy McCarthy remains at the club this season. 

McCarthy's loan from Crystal Palace has expired, but McEveley is hoping that the experienced defender comes back to Bramall Lane. 

"I know that Paddy has really enjoyed himself here over the past few weeks," he said to the Sheffield Star. "His performances have reflected that because, if you’re not happy, then you can’t do as well as he’s been out there on the pitch.

“Fingers crossed, that counts for something.”
