Yorkshire media round-up: Redfearn hints at tactics he will use against Bournemouth

Leeds United

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

Redfearn on tactics

Neil Redfearn has hinted that he may operate with a more defensive style when his Leeds United side take on Bournemouth tonight. 

The Whites always look to play on the front foot under Redfearn, but he has suggested that he will need to ensure that they don't make the game too open because of the visitors' quality. 

"We’ll try and keep it tight, we’ll make it difficult for them," Redfearn said to the club's official site. "But we want to play, we want to go and pass it and we want to give a good account of ourselves because we’re capable."

Gray frustrated

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray has appealed for his side to be more composed in possession. 

The Owls were guilty of giving the ball away cheaply on numerous occasions in their 2-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers and Gray insists that they need to start being more confident on the ball. 

"I’ve told the players they’ve got to be braver and get the ball down and play,” he said to the Sheffield Star. “We gave the ball away in dangerous areas against Bolton and got punished.

“We have to make sure when we play Birmingham that we put them under pressure and not the other way around.”

Baxter confident

Sheffield United forward Jose Baxter has defiantly stated that his side are capable of beating anyone, ahead of their clash with Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup. 

The Blades travel to White Hart Lane on Wednesday night as the outsiders to get to the final, but Baxter has faith in his side's ability to cause an upset. 

“Our run increases our belief that we can beat anyone in the cups and we showed that last season too," he said to the Yorkshire Post.

"Look at Southampton, they have beaten everyone in the league and are high-flying in the Premier League. So, for them to come here and for us to beat them shows we can really beat anyone.”
