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

Cellino hurting

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino says that he feels miserable and weak because of the club's poor form.

The Whites dispensed with former boss Darko Milanic to try and end their poor run of form, but it has not had the desired impact and Cellino suggests that this is something which must change.

“When you’ve won a game, you wake up in the morning, go into the office and face everything in a positive way," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "You feel strong. But seven games without winning, you feel so weak and miserable. Every problem becomes bigger.”

Wednesday will be different

Stuart Gray insists that Sheffield Wednesday will come out fighting at the weekend as they take on Rotherham United in a Yorkshire derby.

The Owls showed little attacking threat in midweek, as they went down 2-0 to Bournemouth, but Gray is convinced things will be different this weekend. 

“We’ve got to be up for the battles," he told to Sheffield Telegraph. "You will see a different Sheffield Wednesday side on Saturday.”

Evans slams Rotherham 

Steve Evans has slammed Rotherham United for showing a lack of fight in their last game against Reading.

The Millers lost 3-0 in midweek and Evans was fuming at the performance because of the lack of spirit shown.

“In every game, I have been a manager I can put up with players having a bad game or missing a pass or chance or doing things which are uncharacteristic," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "But I can’t put up with a lack of spirit, endeavour or fight, which were all missing."

Clough: FA Cup not as important

Nigel Clough says a FA Cup run for Sheffield United is not as important to the club as it was last season, as they prepare to face Crewe in the first round.

The Blades reached the semi-final of the competition last season, but Clough isn't too desperate for a repeat due to his promotion ambitions. 

"The FA Cup run took our minds off the league a bit but promotion and getting in to the top six is the aim this season so it lesser’s it ever so slightly but it won’t be come 3 o’clock on Saturday," he said to the Stoke Sentinel
