Redfearn backs strike-force

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn believes that Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara have made a good initial impression at Elland Road.

The two strikers, who were brought to the club over the summer, have become two of Leeds' major goal threats, and Redfearn says that have done well so far. 

“To be fair to Antenucci and Doukara, to say they’ve come from overseas and this is their first experience of the Championship, they’ve given a good account of themselves," he told the Yorkshire Evening Post

McGugan on move

Lewis McGugan says that he is joining a 'massive club' now that he is at Sheffield Wednesday.

The attacking midfielder arrived on loan from Watford earlier this week, and he says that he is looking forward to getting started at his new club. 

“I spoke to a few people who have played under Stuart Gray before, and Wednesday are a massive club,” he said to the Yorkshire Evening Post

“I just want to get back playing, get a smile on my face, and enjoy football. That’s the important thing."

Dixon on Powell

Huddersfield Town defender Paul Dixon says that Chris Powell's openness is something which he values highly. 

Powell has come in at the John Smith's Stadium and turned the Terriers' form around and Dixon is very happy to be working alongside him. 

"From day one, he has kept me and any other players in the loop as to why he has made his decision," the full-back told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“For me, that is good man-management. I have had managers in the past who have said absolutely nothing to me."

Clough on Oldham

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough is expecting a tough game against Oldham Athletic. 

The Blades host Oldham later today, and Clough has paid tribute to the job that Lee Johnson had done with the Latics. 

“Oldham are bright like him [Johnson], and they get the ball down and play like he used to," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph

“He’s done well at Oldham. It’s a great first job for him and they’re in a rich vein of form. So it should be a good game.”
