Cellino petition gathers momentum 

Leeds United supporters have backed owner Massimo Cellino with a petition against the Football League's decision to ban the Italian from owning the club. 

The petition now has over 8,000 signatures and numbers are rising all the time, as Whites fans look to show their support for their current chairman. 

Bullen on Blackburn game

Sheffield Wednesday coach Lee Bullen says that his side should fear nobody, ahead of their clash with Blackburn Rovers. 

Gary Bowyer's men look in with a chance with promotion this season, but Bullen insists the Owls are full of confidence and looking forward to Saturday's match. 

“It’s a really tough game but why should we fear anybody," he questioned on the club's official site.

“That lads are still full of confidence, even when we were going through that run. It’s a great game for us.”

Powell on Lolley

Chris Powell admits that this season has been a stop-start one for Huddersfield Town winger Joe Lolley so far. 

The former Kidderminster man has been used fleetingly throughout the campaign so far, but Powell still believes that he has the ability to be a success. 

"It’s been a real whirlwind for Joe, and a bit stop-start,” Powell said to the Examiner. “But he’s got natural talent and is very quick."

Clough rues bad luck

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough feels that the luck is going against his side after another disappointing home performance last night.

The Blades lost 1-0 to fellow promotion contenders MK Dons at Bramall Lane yesterday evening, but Clough feels things will turn around for the side soon. 

"Others are coming here at the moment and getting the luck, we aren’t being so fortunate," he told the Sheffield Telegraph

“However, if we keep persevering, then the luck will start going our way.”
