Warnock reveals Redfearn plan
Leeds United defender Stephen Warnock has urged his teammates to start putting good performances together for 90 minutes rather than brief periods in games.
The full-back believes that the Whites are showing their quality in patches and finding more consistency is something which Neil Redfearn is working on.
"We’ve put in some great first-half displays and then played well for spells in the second half, but we never carry it out for 90 minutes," he told the club's official site.
"Redders has said that’s something he wants to address and knock out of us and we’ll keep working hard on the training pitch to try and sort that out."
Lavery: We do finishing training
Sheffield Wednesday's goalscoring problems are not due to a lack of trying, according to Caolan Lavery.
The Owls have scored just 12 times in the league to date, but Lavery insists that they are working on their finishing ability regularly in training.
“The gaffer works with us all the time on finishing," Lavery told the Sheffield Telegraph.
“We do weekly crossing and finishing sessions. It’s not just the strikers who get involved. It’s central midfielders making late runs into the box and even defenders sometimes."
Murphy: Smithies one of the best
Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Joe Murphy says that Alex Smithies is one of the best goalkeepers he has worked alongside.
Murphy was brought in by the Terriers this summer and has had to bide his time for first-team opportunities - although he did play in the side's last fixture against Sheffield Wednesday.
It could have been a frustrating period for many goalkeepers, but Murphy insists that he knew the competition would be tough when he agreed to move to the John Smith's Stadium.
“When I came here I understood I had to fight for a place," he said to the Examiner.
“Alex is a top keeper, technically one of the best I have worked with. But he got an injury so it was a chance for me."
Clough: no panic
Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough insists that his side will not panic, even if they fail to land a striker before the loan deadline.
The Blades have been on the hunt for a goalscorer for some time, but their efforts to sign a number nine have proved fruitless so far.
“Yes, we’d like to score more," Clough said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "But, whatever happens, there is going to be no panic from us.”
