Yorkshire latest: Billy Sharp on where Leeds haven't been good enough

Elland Road East Stand

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

Sharp admits poor away form

Billy Sharp admits that Leeds United's away form has not been anywhere near good enough this season. 

The Whites have not picked up three points on their travels since the middle of September, but Sharp believes a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest this weekend was an encouraging sign that they would be able to improve on this poor record. 

“Our away performances aren’t good enough at the minute but everyone would have taken a point before the game," the striker said to the Yorkshire Post. "Hopefully the fans are happy with the character we showed in getting a point at the end.”

Gray on Wednesday fans

Stuart Gray has praised Sheffield Wednesday's fans for their loyal support. 

The Owls took 4,000 fans to Fulham this weekend, but crashed to a 4-0 defeat in the fixture and Gray now feels that the team owe it to their supporters to start picking up wins. 

“We really appreciate the fans support," he said to the Sheffield Star. "I have never known fans like them. They were magnificent, bounced from the first minute to the last and I can’t thank them enough."

"The players owe the supporters a good performance and win.”

Coady on direct approach

Conor Coady has urged his Huddersfield Town teammates to be more patient in possession after they lost 1-0 to Birmingham City this Saturday.

The central midfield man felt that his side lost their way in the fixture and he wants them to play with a more aesthetically pleasing style for longer in the future. 

“We are all about playing quick and probing football, and we didn’t do that against Birmingham," he said to the Examiner.

“I think we started playing too many long balls too early and we need to be more patient.”

O'Grady wants Bramall Lane stay

Chris O'Grady is hoping to extend his loan spell at Bramall Lane, after opening his account for Sheffield United this weekend.

The target-man centre forward's temporary move to the Blades from Brighton and Hove Albion expires next month, but he has no desire to return to his parent club. 

“I would definitely be interested in staying,” O’Grady told The Star. “I just want to enjoy my football and that’s what I am doing right now."
