Yorkshire media round-up: Leeds star on what Redfearn keeps telling the squad

Elland Road East Stand

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

Sharp on Redfearn's message

Leeds United striker Billy Sharp says that Neil Redfearn is trying to keep the squad focused on the task ahead. 

The Whites could be forgiven for getting carried away after beating Huddersfield Town 2-1 last weekend, but Sharp says that Redfearn is repeatedly ensuring that they only look ahead to the next game. 

"Redders keeps telling us to take it game by game," he said to the club's official site. "Every game in this division is tough. "We have to go into each game with a gameplan and always stay in the game. Then we can pick up as many points as possible."

McGugan's unfinished business

Sheffield Wednesday's deadline day addition Lewis McGugan believes that he has unfinished business with the club after his last loan spell.

McGugan joined the Owls on loan towards the back end of 2014, but he failed to hit the back of the net in his seven appearances and he is aiming to get on the scoresheet more regularly now he is back at Hillsborough. 

“I do feel like I have got unfinished business here," he said to the Sheffield Star. "It annoyed me I didn’t score a goal in the seven games I played because I’m a goal-scoring midfielder. There is a lot more to come from me."

Basham wants match against Manchester United

Sheffield United may have had their fair share of memorable cup games in recent times, but Chris Basham is hoping for another one in the near future. 

The Blades face the prospect of playing Manchester United in the next round of the FA Cup - should they beat Preston and the Red Devils get past Cambridge United - and Basham says it's a tie that the whole squad want to be a part of. 

“It is difficult knowing the prize is a possible game against the biggest club in the world,” he admitted to the Yorkshire Post

“We all watch Match of the Day every week and want to pit ourselves against those players. Playing Manchester United at Bramall Lane would be a great occasion."
