Sharp admits frustrations 

Leeds United striker Billy Sharp admits that it hasn't all been smooth sailing since he moved to Elland Road this summer.

"It’s been very frustrating," he told the Leeds' official site. "We’ve had a few managers and I got injured in between."

"I’m at a stage now where I want to play every week. It has been frustrating but, in patches, the lads have done really well."

Rotherham to train Christmas day

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans says that he squad will be training on Christmas Day. 

With the Millers due to play against Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day, Evans wants his squad fully focused and has even invited the supporters to come and watch the intensity of their preparations. 

“Any supporters that are around our training ground are most welcome on Christmas morning to get some fresh air and see the lads out there," he said to the Yorkshire Post.

Gray puts pressure on

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray is demanding that his side beat Blackpool in their next match.

The Owls were defeated 4-0 by Fulham last time out and Gray wants to see them bounce back immediately. 

"We have got to make sure we win against Blackpool," Gray said to the Sheffield Star

Clough planning

Sheffield United are already on the hunt for January additions, according to manager Nigel Clough.

The Blades are expected to bring in a number of players to strengthen their promotion bid and Clough is already making plans. 

“We’re active now," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. “We’re making enquiries at the minute, and we won’t wait uintil window opens to do that. If we can line people up now we will do."
