Redfearn frustrated

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn was left annoyed by his side's failure to extend their advantage against Ipswich Town at the weekend.

Leeds had taken the lead in the match early on, but they squandered it to lose 4-1 at Portman Road, and the Whites boss was frustrated his team took their foot off the gas. 

“It was like we were waiting for the opposition to come back into it, when what we needed to do was grasp the nettle and take them by the throat," he told The Yorkshire Evening Post. "We’ve got a side who are capable of doing that. It’s disappointing.”

Blades happy

Nigel Clough says that he is delighted to have seen his Sheffield United side beat Plymouth Argyle in FA Cup acton. 

The Blades were victorious against their League Two opponents in a comfortable 3-0 success, and Clough was pleased with the performance. 

"We are just delighted to get through, Plymouth made it very difficult for us, especially in the first half," he said to The Yorkshire Evening Post. “Once the first goal went in, we relaxed and played some good stuff.”

Maguire delighted

Sheffield Wednesday forward Chris Maguire believes that his side's win over Blackburn Rovers should fill them with confidence.

The Owls picked up a notable success at Ewood Park on Saturday, and Maguire claims that it can be the foundation for them to kick on. 

“We got the ball down and played well and they struggled to cope with us at times,” he said to The Sheffield Telegraph.

"Beating Blackburn should give us loads of confidence. Not many teams will come here and get the three points.”

Powell plots

Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell is planning a busy January transfer window. 

The Terriers may have been in good form since Powell's arrival, but he is still intending on doing a lot of business to bolster his options in the new-year.

"We will be busy in January for definite, both in terms of incomings and outgoings," he said to the Examiner. “We have to keep the team and the squad fresh."
