Sheffield Wednesday

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

Redfearn wants promotion

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn says that the club are only just at the start of their planning to become a Premier League club. 

The Whites' young squad has been inconsistent so far this season, but Redfearn insists that he is building a squad capable of getting out of the Championship in the next few seasons. 

"We are right at the beginning of what we are trying to do with a lot of young players and signings who have come in to make up the side," Redfearn told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“We are finding our feet in terms of building a team, which can compete and hopefully get promoted in the future.”

Gray happy with start

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray is happy with the club's start, despite coming under pressure after a winless run recently. 

The Owls boss faced scrutiny before back-to-back wins in the side's last two games have alleviated some of their fears and Gray believes that it has been a positive opening to the season. 

“If you had said to me we would only lose four times in 20 games, I would have snapped your hand off," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph

Powell on Scannell 

Chris Powell has hailed the form of Sean Scannell, after the Huddersfield Town winger put in a man-of-the-match display against Brentford this weekend. 

The Terriers won the fixture 2-1 and Scannell's display eased any concerns that Powell may have had about the rapid wide-man. 

"He is in a real rich vein of form right now. He's a flying machine," Powell said to the Herald.

"People said to me when I came here that he doesn't score goals and he doesn't make assists but he has proved what a good player he really is."

Clough wants proven stars

Sheffield United will be looking for experienced heads in the January transfer window, according to Nigel Clough.

The Blades boss feels that he he has enough inexperienced stars in his team already and wants to help them out by bringing in some proven League One stars. 

"in January, we’ll look at proven players to bring in," Clough said to the Sheffield Star. "We don’t need any more youngsters."
