Yorkshire latest: Leeds star confident of beating Derby, Gray on transfer plans

Leeds United 2

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

Warnock confident

Leeds United defender Stephen Warnock says that the team are confident going into their game with Derby County tonight.

The Whites beat Derby 2-0 at Elland Road earlier in the season and the win has provided them with confidence that they will be able to topple the promotion favourites again. 

"We know what their weaknesses are. We tried to exploit them last time and we did that, the gameplan worked well," he told the club's official site

"We have got to be as positive as we can and get a result from it."

Wednesday transfer strategy

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray has hinted that he has no funds to spend in the January transfer window. 

The Owls are still plotting to make new additions in the new-year, but they will be loan moves rather than costly transfers. 

“It is more likely we will be (looking) in the loan market than permanent unless it’s a free transfer or taking a player who is out of contract," he admitted to the Sheffield Star

Evans blames Arnison

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans has pulled no punches with his analysis of his side's 1-1 draw with Blackpool on Sunday. 

The Millers were leading until a punt up-field from Blackpool goalkeeper Joe Lewis caused chaos and allowed Dom Telford to tuck in a late equaliser. It was a frustrating way to drop two points and Evans was fuming with one man in particular. 

“Let’s be honest, you’d get a guy in the Sunday League to head that," Evans fumed to the Sheffield Star. "It’s just huge individual error."

“Let’s say it is as it is … if Kari Arnason does his job, we win 1-0.”

Blades want O'Grady

Sheffield United are hoping to re-sign Brighton and Hove Albion striker Chris O'Grady when the transfer window reopens. 

O'Grady made a good impression at Bramall Lane before heading back to Brighton after Sami Hyypia was sacked and Nigel Clough's men are confident of being able to bring him back.
