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

Adryan on Lampard

Leeds United loanee Adryan is delighted to be playing football in England as it means he can emulate his idol Frank Lampard.

The Brazilian admired the Chelsea legend, who now plays for Manchester City, in his younger days when watching back in his homeland and he is pleased to be following in the attacking midfielder's footsteps now.

"Its a dream for me to play in England," he said today. "When I was a child I saw my idols like Frank Lampard and now I can play near them."

Gray won't underestimate Wolves

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray insists that Sheffield Wednesday will not be complacent heading into their game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

Wolves have been in poor form recently, but Gray believes his side will be determined to extend their good run of results and won't be taking them lightly. 

"The players have got more of a spring in their step after back-to-back wins," Gray said to the Sheffield Star. "We’ve got a lot of self belief and confidence from the win and performance we produced at home to Wigan.

“We have to build on our last two results but we won’t underestimate Wolves."

Wells on goal struggles

Huddersfield Town centre forward Nahki Wells admits that he wanted to get on the scoresheet last weekend, when his side beat Brentford. 

Wells has not scored in his last five matches and, although the side won, the striker left the pitch slightly down that he could not end his own personal goal drought. 

“I was delighted to get an assist but disappointed not to score,” he said to the Yorkshire Post.

“The keeper made a great save but it’s not exactly falling for me at the minute and so I have to keep working and keep my head up. I know the goals will always come, I just have to stay positive.”

Clough insists people are fighting for their places 

Nigel Clough says that his Sheffield United squad are all fighting for their places ahead of the January transfer window. 

The Blades boss wants to make upgrades to his squad at the next available opportunity and feels that it should serve as motivation to the current team. 

“If you’re a player, you’ll be thinking ‘there might be a couple of people coming over January,'" Clough said to the Sheffield Star. "If it’s in your place then that’s all the incentive you need.”
